Wake Up Yoga offers Vinyasa (flow-style) and Yin (passive) styles of practice: from a slow & steady pace to more active & physically challenging flows, to yin and restorative yoga classes. The classes are thoughtful, well-rounded and tailored to who is present; they are founded on mindfulness, inspired by heartfulness, and aim toward wakefulness. Our teachers are certified, kind, highly skilled and devoted to the path of yoga.

We know that people who are ‘beginners’ to yoga come from vast and varied backgrounds. And we know that beginners, as well as seasoned practitioners, come to yoga for varied reasons seeking different experiences. Rather than levels, our class names describe the mood and feeling of the class, and beginners are always welcome. Find the description that matches the tempo you are looking for, and rest assured that the teacher will offer variations and modifications as needed.

We believe in the power of heating yourSelf up from the inside out in a comfortable environment, and aim to keep the studios between 72 – 75 degrees year round.

Please note that classes start on time; it is best to arrive at least 5-10 minutes before the class to secure your participation. In order to keep everyone’s valuables safe, the front door will be locked no later than 5 minutes after class begins.

Most of our classes do not fill to capacity, so pre-registration is not required, you can simply drop-in! If you’ve never practiced with us before, please sign up for your first class in person to redeem our new student special! Ask your teacher for details.
Registration is open 48 hours before the scheduled class, with 60 minutes after the class has started to cancel–if you do not cancel within that time, your account will be charged.
