Yoga Freedom offers yoga and mindfulness instruction and resources with the aspiration of spreading yoga and freedom for all.


Yoga Freedom was founded by Michelle Margaret Fajkus in Austin in 2002. After a short stint in the San Francisco Bay area (2003-04), our headquarters returned to Austin until August of 2009, when we relocated to Guatemala City. In June of 2012, we made our final move (for now…) to beautiful Lake Atitlan, in the Guatemalan highlands.

    Hi Margaret,

    I loved your article in Elephant Journal “How I learned to let worry float by”. I feel like I’m finally in the process of being able to do this. I feel emancipated from myself, or at least my ego lol :)
