Facility Rentals & Hosted Programs

Facilities Rentals

At Headwaters School we have both indoor and outdoor spaces available for other nonprofits, businesses, and individuals to rent for small events and on-going programs during the 2020-2021 school year/summer. We have three campuses; our Springs Campus at 6305 Menchaca Rd, our Creek Campus at 9607 Brodie Lane, and our River Campus, a group of buildings located downtown at 807 Rio Grande. At this time we are only able to rent spaces at our downtown campus, but please reach out to inquire about the other campuses as the situation is evolving.

  • Sword Casting at the River Campus on 1/31 and 2/13

    Greg Wenderski Swordcasting
    Greg Wenderski, 

    Sword Casting at the River Campus


    Have you ever watched someone making a sword in the movies and thought it looked too cool for school? If so, this class is for you! 
    Join us Sunday, January 31 or Saturday, February 13
    These all ages classes are from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. each day. You'll start by learning about the beginning of metal work over 5,000 years ago and examine artifacts that trace the evolution of metallurgy across several cultures. Next, you'll choose a wooden sword from several historical Bronze Age patterns, and get your hands dirty making a careful sand cast of the wooden original. And then watch as we pour your mold with molten metal! Afterwards, while you take a lunch break, several volunteers & I grind the swords smooth and prepare them for handles. When you come back, wrap the handle in leather and stamp your initials in the metal before taking your sword home! This class is an Austin original, usually sells out, and is not taught anywhere else, so grab a friend and strike while the iron is hot!  
    A percentage of every registration from Headwaters’ families is donated back to us, so mention the school when enrolling. To register and get more information, go to swordcastingguy.com/calendar/
  • Yoga and Mindfulness with Cynthia Bernard at the River Campus

    ATX Yoga Girl
    Yoga and Mindfulness with Cynthia Bernard
    At the River Campus

    After school yoga classes offer students in elementary through high school an opportunity to explore a yoga and mindfulness practice, enhancing students self-awareness and ability to be more conscious in their thoughts, actions, and decisions. 

    Students will learn a variety of yoga poses and sequences to help promote focus, healthy body awareness, connection, balance, and focus. In each session, we practice breathing techniques, guided meditations, and affirmations to deal with stress and difficult emotions.

    Students are encouraged to work at their own level, with modifications shown for more difficult poses, to allow everyone to participate. As students experience the physical benefits of yoga, they also learn about yoga philosophy (kindness, gratefulness, honesty, truthfulness, etc.).

    Cynthia has taught for AISD after school programs, Just Keep Livin’ Foundation (high school programs), Girls Empowerment Network, supported mindfulness retreats for AISD staff/families, and has many other partners in the Austin area such as Jump Gymnastics and Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.

    Register for a group session at a discount. Just $25 for a child and parent pair, limited to 5 children from the same class/pod. Just email atxyogagirl@gmail.com.

    Weekly sessions: Tuesdays from 4:15-5:15 p.m. for 6 weeks of in-person after school classes taught outside at the River Campus (807 Rio Grande St.) unless there is inclement weather. 

    Facilitator: Cynthia Bernard, Founder of ATX Yoga Girl
