RIIM Fitness is a San Antonio based fitness studio that comes to you from the mind of Rob Myers, PGA (Professional Golf Association) professional. Rob has been a competitor and instructor in the game of golf for years. A focus on fitness to improve his own golf game and those of his students lit a fire of passion for yoga and fitness. From that fire RIIM Fitness was born.
The mission of R II M Fitness is to educate all ages of the surrounding community on the importance of physical and mental fitness. We will use a variety of wellness based classes and programs to help people change their lifestyles and ultimately improve their quality of life.
We are commited to helping people attain a better quality of life through the services we provide. Our passion for wellness motivates us to continue learning and developing new programs that will challenge both the body and mind. We respect that everybody has different wants and needs, and strive to accomadate each individual.
Hatha Yoga Basics
Through the use of various postures, conscious breathing, and mental focus, our Hatha Basics Class will provide both a physical and mental challenge. The class is specifically designed to increase flexibility, build strength, and improve spacial awareness. Focusing primarily on body alignment and breathing techniques, you will learn the “building blocks” for a lifetime of yoga practice. Each class will conclude with a short meditation leaving you relaxed and refreshed.
Hatha Yoga Movement
Join the Hatha Yoga Movement Class for a challenge unlike you’ve ever encountered. The dynamic nature of our Hatha Movement Class will provide a strong cardiovascular workout in addition to the physical and mental challenge of Hatha Basics (static poses). Each carefully constructed class will lead you quickly from one posture to the next (both standing and sitting), while controlling your breath. All of our instructors provide modifications when necessary to cater to a wider variety of skill/experience levels.
Rockin’ Hatha is a fun and chill way to wind down the weekend and rock your way into the week ahead.

You want to get an edge in your golf game, feel better on your bike, run with more freedom and less injury? Yoga is your ticket to ride. This class is very alignment oriented. Tia’s teaching is otherwise relaxed and playful. She encourages a balance between working hard and the joy of experiencing one’s individual practice and true nature. There is a strong emphasis on community. You will be welcomed and encouraged into a very social and supportive group.
Hatha Yoga Strength
Rob's Hatha Yoga Strength class is a unique yoga experience designed for the yogi seeking an extra challenge physically while maintaining the mental and emotional aspects so crucial to an effective yoga practice. Holding poses for significantly longer periods of time than our other classes, you will leave the Strength class having experienced a full body workout. Feeling physically exhausted and mentally refreshed, the Hatha Strength class is perfect for those looking to increase muscular strength and endurance while avoiding fitness equipment and heavy free weights.
*We strongly recommend taking one of our Hatha Yoga Movement classes before trying a Hatha Yoga Strength class.
