Lovely Hearts Wellness was created to serve the Hill Country community and encompasses a life-long passion for community service and a dedication to continued learning. Offering private and group yoga classes to people of all ages and abilities, including yoga for arthritis and chronic pain, prenatal yoga, childbirth education and doula services to pregnant women, Lovely Hearts Wellness strives to connect people from all walks of life. Based out of Wimberley, TX, we proudly serve all areas of the Hill Country, including Austin, San Antonio, New Braunfels, Blanco, San Marcos, Dripping Springs, Fisher, and Wimberley.

We approach wellness in a Mind|Body|Soul style, with a balanced focus on physical, emotional and spiritual aspects. This is a holistic approach to wellness that combines well with other modalities of health, including Western medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Aryuveda, and other alternative methods of wellness.

Yoga

Integral Yoga is a type of traditional hatha yoga that uses breath and asana (postures) to tone the body, mind and soul. These practices are beneficial for anyone, no matter what physical limitations one may have. Oona specializes in prenatal yoga, yoga for arthritis and chronic pain and all levels of Integral hatha yoga. There is no judgement and no competition at Lovely Hearts. All levels of students are welcome. Beginners, or people who have never tried yoga before are especially welcome!

Our sole purpose at Lovely Hearts Wellness is to teach and to serve.

Our yoga classes are suitable for people of all ages, shapes and sizes. Our Chronic Pain classes are especially helpful for people who are going to physical therapy, as the movements we do in class work in conjunction with work done with a PT.

Doula Services and Childbirth Education
Be prepared for labor (whether at a hospital, birthing center or at home), learn all you can about the birthing process and the fourth trimester and consider having a doula during the birth for added physical and emotional support. Oona works with local midwives and OBs and is happy to offer doula support wherever you choose to give birth — hospital, birth center or home birth.

Lovely Hearts strives to be inclusive. We welcome LGBTQIA people and all pregnant people with open arms. Birth is sacred, no matter what form it takes, and no matter who the parent is.
