in 2008 by the wife and husband team of Lola Scarborough and Kevin Post, Yoga Lola Studios is
a thriving and vibrant yoga, healing, and learning center. Our
emphasis is on personal development through physical, mental, emotional,
and spiritual channels. We welcome people from all walks of life
and from all kinds of backgrounds. We have no interest in, or
affiliations with, any
particular religious practices or creeds. At Yoga Lola, we touch our essence through self-work, self-healing, self-responsibility, and service.
Yoga Lola Teachers
Our teachers are certified at a minimum 200-hour level, and all have extensive fitness and yoga backgrounds. Every teacher brings his/her own practices and experiences to Yoga Lola; no two teachers are the same. Each has his/her own unique style and way of being, which we celebrate! For this reason, you are sure to find a teacher here that is just right for you.

of her practice. In addition to teaching yoga, Denise teaches fitness
and yoga classes throughout the Clear Lake area. Denise has additional
certifications as well: AFAA Personal Trainer, USWFA Water Fitness
Instructor, Silver Sneaker Instructor, MADD Dog Spin Instructor, and

asana, breath, and mindfulness. She knows
that no matter how she feels before she does yoga, she always feels
better after practicing and so do her students! Denise will earn
her Kundalini Studies certificate
in the 2015-2016 Yoga Lola's Teacher Training Course and will be a
part of the teaching team itself, sharing her extensive knowledge of
