Pure Yoga Texas
PURE Yoga Texas was initially established in Austin, Texas, in 2003, when Mardy Chen opened the first location in Davenport/Westlake. Her husband, Jeff Chen, joined her in 2008, and together they grew the Original Hot Yoga community in the Greater Austin area to four convenient locations. Our mission is simple and pure: We empower all people to improve their lives through regular practice of the Original Hot Yoga (the Bikram method), and inspire our students by serving as exemplary role models in the yoga room and our community.
The Original Hot Yoga is a sequence of 26 traditional yoga postures (asanas) with an opening and closing breathing exercise (pranayama) conducted over 90 minutes in a room heated to 105 degrees. The Bikram method of hatha yoga is the “Original Hot Yoga” from which many yoga teachers and yoga studios today have modified or incorporated into their own, self-styled yoga classes.
At PURE Yoga Texas, we carefully preserve the tradition of the original 90-minute class as we have learned from our yoga teachers, Bikram and Rajashree Choudhury. As a new or experienced yoga practitioner, you can be assured that you are receiving the unmatched benefits of an authentic Bikram method class!
