Walking into a yoga class for the first time can be an intimidating experience. You may feel you're not flexible enough, not strong enough, or not calm enough to make it through an entire class. This series provides you with the opportunity to engage your mind and body in a study of your self, discovering breath and movement in a non-competitive and nurturing environment. We will focus on foundational vinyasa yoga poses and breath practices, and your teacher will also introduce you to yoga philosophy. The series will be progressive, layering one class on top of the next, so that your experience and understanding of yoga continues to deepen. This series is designed to empower you to attend any class at Wake Up Yoga with confidence after its conclusion, armed with appropriate variations to protect yourself from injury and get the most out of the class. This is an introductory series to vinyasa yoga. Vinyasa yoga can be an intense physical practice and may not be appropriate for those with recent head or neck injury, vertigo or severe joint pain. Students will be sitting on the floor at the beginning of each session, and classes are designed for those who can get up from and down onto the floor on their own power with ease. Pregnant students looking to establish a practice are encouraged to practice in prenatal yoga classes rather than enroll in this BNB series. Please be in touch with us at or send an email to info@wakeupyoga.com if you have any questions about this series. Vinyasa yoga is a valuable practice for many people but may not be the most appropriate practice for each student at every phase of life. We want you to LOVE yoga and are happy to direct you to a class that will be best-suited to your intentions. Sorry, no refunds, partial enrollments, or make up classes.

Real Big Yoga: A Five Week Series

Teacher(s): Carolyn Poerio
Real Big Yoga is just that, real yoga for big bodies. Yoga is appropriate for people in all bodies regardless of body shape and ability, but that’s not the message we always see portrayed in the world. Often there is a misconception that if we modify or alter poses to fit our bodies, it’s somehow not a real practice. In this series, we will explore real yoga for the bodies we live in today. In this progressive series we will move through the foundations of exploring yoga in a bigger body, prop use and the wall for optimal accessibility for traditional poses, inverting in bigger bodies (it’s a thing!) and most importantly intentional rest. There will be time for discussion and questions, as well as realistic ideas and tips for making poses more accessible for your body. There are no size requirements or limitations for this series. The language and course design will be specific to people who live in big bodies. The course will be open level, meaning that it will be beneficial for beginners and experienced practitioners alike. The series is appropriate for people of all genders.

Teacher(s): Patrice Seko
Being a teen in 2018 requires focus, balance, strength, and flexibility to adapt to the hustle and bustle of busy lives. Rushing from school, to lessons/clubs/sports, all the while maintaining friendships and relationships and trying to get enough sleep is not an easy task! Teens, give yourself the opportunity to reboot your system, finish your school year strong, and roll into summer with new perspective…and strength. In this series, teen yogis will learn restorative poses and meditations to revitalize their minds in between study breaks. We will practice vinyasa poses that invite us to examine and delete what’s not working in our busy lives. These poses will teach us strength, flexibility, and balance to prepare us to be resilient through challenging times. There is no competition is yoga! This will be a safe, exploratory space where students can ask questions, try something new, and support those around them. At the end of the series, teens will leave with a handout and resources on how to start their own home practice. This program is appropriate for both boys and girls.

Core Connection: A Mindful Approach to Moving From Your Center

Sat Jun 9 2018, 12:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: South Philadelphia
Teacher(s): Vera Ginsburgs
The core can elicit a wide range of feelings and associations to every person at different times; sometimes it’s the root of trusting our gut to make decisions, or it’s a body part we think of with shame and wish to ignore, and other times it sustains a new life. However, we can’t deny the importance of this area of the body, both physically and emotionally, as it provides us a center to move, live, breath, and act from. With the right kind of attention, we can move from this space in a more harmonious and healthy way. When we feel disparate, frazzled, numb or overwhelmed, returning to our center creates a sense of fluid integration, similar to casting a wide net to catch these feelings and experiences, and drawing it back to our core to put ourselves back together. It’s the space that creates stability in movement, as well as stability in one’s sense of self. It allows us to make decisions in the moment, tapping into our instincts and intuition. Strengthening our core and activating it properly improves our posture, which in turn can positively impact our self-confidence and feelings of empowerment. It ignites our energy centers where we develop the emotional, physical, and ego identities. By exploring the anatomy of the core’s muscles and movements in depth, building our skills moving through poses with our center activated, and better understanding how to move from the core in our practice and our life, we’ll improve our ability to tune into the present moment and engage in our life in a strengthened and balanced way.

Reiki + Yoga Workshop

Sun Jun 10 2018, 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: South Philadelphia
Teacher(s): Sean Jacobs
Set your intention and let the energy flow! Community Reiki clinic meets Yoga in this innovative workshop. With a focus on healing, you're guided through a series of grounding yoga poses all supported with a relaxing group Reiki treatment. Through stillness and breathing we'll focus on releasing any blockages in the body. The hard work in this course is in letting go of what you're holding on a deeper level. The dynamic of the group setting allows the Reiki energy to become amplified for everyone's benefit. As you settle in for each Yoga pose the instructor will come around the room, one student at a time and offer a brief Reiki treatment. Students tend to experience a tremendous positive shift in their overall energy system and often times a physical realignment of some sort as they leave the class. There is no pressure to remain in a position that is uncomfortable for you. Feel free to move about during class, opt out of the Reiki treatment or skip poses in place of something more comfortable like seated meditation or savasana.

Walking into a yoga class for the first time can be an intimidating experience. You may feel you're not flexible enough, not strong enough, or not calm enough to make it through an entire class. This series provides you with the opportunity to engage your mind and body in a study of your self, discovering breath and movement in a non-competitive and nurturing environment. We will focus on foundational vinyasa yoga poses and breath practices, and your teacher will also introduce you to yoga philosophy. The series will be progressive, layering one class on top of the next, so that your experience and understanding of yoga continues to deepen. This series is designed to empower you to attend any class at Wake Up Yoga with confidence after its conclusion, armed with appropriate variations to protect yourself from injury and get the most out of the class. This is an introductory series to vinyasa yoga. Vinyasa yoga can be an intense physical practice and may not be appropriate for those with recent head or neck injury, vertigo or severe joint pain. Students will be sitting on the floor at the beginning of each session, and classes are designed for those who can get up from and down onto the floor on their own power with ease. Pregnant students looking to establish a practice are encouraged to practice in prenatal yoga classes rather than enroll in this BNB series. Please be in touch with us at or send an email to info@wakeupyoga.com if you have any questions about this series. Vinyasa yoga is a valuable practice for many people but may not be the most appropriate practice for each student at every phase of life. We want you to LOVE yoga and are happy to direct you to a class that will be best-suited to your intentions. Sorry, no refunds, partial enrollments, or make up classes.

Location: Rittenhouse
Teacher(s): Kelly Mitchell
The EMBODY LOVE WORKSHOP is a 3 hour transformational workshop for adult women ages 19 and up that takes participants on a journey toward self-acceptance.

Interactive exercises include: · Dismantling the “beauty myth” · Changing the conversation from criticism to kindness · Embodied yoga experience for all levels of ability: Yoga is an integral part of the mind-body connection. Learning to breathe and to be present in the moment can create clarity to settle in to our unique and miraculous bodies.

Restorative Yoga is a practice using supported poses to relax on multiple levels to release tension and to tap into our body’s natural healing and restoring abilities. Restorative Yoga is a gentle practice that creates the space and conditions for the student to access their wisdom physically, emotionally, and mentally. Our bodies have the ability to heal and thrive when we learn to balance all the doing with being. We live in a body that has an amazing system already in place to find the path to health and happiness. Restorative yoga can help awaken students’ awareness of the effects of stress so that they may release and make conscious choices of their next thought, word and action. This training will give you the information and tools to begin teaching this practice to groups and individuals. You will learn the science behind the feelings and experiences of being alive in this incredible time of information and stimulation. You will learn the function and importance of a soft deep breath. You will practice restorative yoga and learn basic poses that can be adapted to different bodies and emotional states. You will learn to teach your students, or remind them of their ability to connect with their body, emotions, and thoughts. This training will impact the way you teach other types of yoga and your own personal practice. This training is aimed at adding tools to the established teacher’s tool bag. This training is appropriate for those wanting to deepen their understanding of and practice of restorative yoga. This training will count toward 15 CECs with the Yoga Alliance.

Soften Into Summer: A Yin & Restorative Immersion

Sun Jul 15 2018, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location: South Philadelphia
Teacher(s): Felicia Comisar
Join us for a three hour workshop where you will lean into the uncomfortable and then melt into the sweet. We often react to discomfort, anxiety or fear as if we are in physical danger. A long time ago that served us well for survival. But today, in this life, it might be immensely healing and uplifting to view and experience those sensations as simply new information without the need to prepare to fight. It could start with allowing yourself to experience this exact moment as it is, without any need to define it, explain it or deny it. Just like life, this workshop will provide you with the chance to acknowledge what is uncomfortable, scary or stuck. Yin places the body in shapes that open up the connective tissue, that remind us that there is sweetness in being open and honest, and that pain is not a punishment. Finding your way in a practice without judgements can be an experience that connects you with your sweet heart and your physical strength. It takes strength to be still with discomfort and you might find you have more of that than you knew. From there you will add bolsters and create shapes to cradle the body. The tension of stress hides out in the body. This practice requires a different kind of strength – patience. These poses invite the breath to deepen as well as expand. This chance to soften with what you find and feel can reveal to you the depths of ease available to you when you release and relax with what you discover. Fear, discomfort, and pain are not who you are but something that you experience. Perhaps this workshop will connect you with that on a visceral level. The physical practice may allow you to put down the tension you carry so that you may find the truth beneath the thoughts and sensations. This workshop is appropriate for all bodies. No previous experience with yoga is needed. Bring your Self, comfortable clothes, and your favorite large scarf and/or eye pillow.

Tapping into the Kundalini

Sun Jul 15 2018, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location: Rittenhouse
Teacher(s): Sarah Hummel
Kundalini Yoga is known as Yoga of Awareness. It is a dynamic, powerful practice that is designed to give you an experience of your soul. In Kundalini Yoga we tap into the mental, physical, and nervous energies of the body through a technology that precisely and consciously combines breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra, body locks, and postures. Through deep breath, focused drishti, and repetitive small movements, we balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purify the blood. It brings balance to the body, mind, and soul. It is a practice that is accessible to everyone, no matter level of experience, age, gender, religion, body-type, or physical ability. You will walk away feeling strong, free and focused.

Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra Workshop

Sat Aug 4 2018, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Location: Rittenhouse

Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra are two deeply relaxing practices that will bring you a profound sense of wellness.

Then you will experience Yoga Nidra, the ancient revitalizing practice of the Himalayan yogis, in which one remains conscious during the dreaming state. Yoga Nidra involves total body relaxation techniques, breath awareness exercises, and guided visualizations. Reduced insomnia, stress relief, and improved quality of sleep are just a few of the many benefits of Yoga Nidra. Restorative yoga makes use of bolsters and blankets, so even complete beginners and those with injuries can find comfort in these postures.

We will investigate the foundational shapes of yin yoga, seeking to understand the method of this practice, and exploring appropriate ways of modifying poses to meet individual students’ needs. Included in the training are daily yin yoga practices, and opportunities to work in partners and small groups for practical experience applying the information. You will viscerally integrate the information so that, upon completion, you will feel confident teaching yin yoga and also fielding students’ questions with confidence and true clarity. Topics to be addressed: • Theory of Yin/Yang/Tao and how these concepts are embedded in the practice, and are vastly illuminating in a quest for balance • Tension and Compression, two of yoga’s primary stressors • Anatomy & Physiology: Bones, Muscles, Fascia and Organs • Anatomical Uniqueness and “Inside-Out Alignment” • Contraindications, and tailoring the practice to different populations. • Nadis/Meridians, Organs and Emotions, Patterns of Excess, Deficiency and Balance • A.A.F.F.R.: a formula for responding to emotional responses in yin yoga practice • Breathing practices to invite the fullness of experience • Safe, Sacred and Neutral: prerequisite for personal YINquiry Participants will receive a certificate of completion which can be applied as “Continuing Education Units” (CEU’s) for Registered Yoga Teachers.

Grief as a Spiritual Process: Breath, Meditation and Writing to Move through the Loss of a Child

Sun Sep 23 2018, 12:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: Rittenhouse
Teacher(s): Roberta Halpern
The loss of a child is devastating and can be difficult to navigate at any stage of grief. In the safe space of this workshop, we will give ourselves permission to take the time to honor our grief, ourselves, and our children. Roberta, who has lost both of her children, will facilitate this session and share her experience. Through guided meditation, breath practice and writing we will share about our children and the challenges loss and grieving bring to our daily lives. We will learn some simple breathwork which is grounding and relaxing- something to help us as we grieve. Guided Meditations will quiet us, calm us and lead us to inspiration for writing. There will also be short writing prompts on a variety of grief topics, after which we will have opportunities to share. Sharing with other parents, who understand what we are going through, is helpful. We are not alone in what we are experiencing. All emotions are welcomed. The only experience you need for this workshop is your personal grief journey. You will leave feeling a little lighter, with a deeper connection to your child, some new friends, and some ideas to continue your writing, and some tools to assist you as you grieve. Please dress in comfortable loose clothing. Bring a notebook or journal for writing and your favorite pen. This afternoon is recommended for those whose loss occurred over 6 months ago.

Teacher(s): Yoganand Michael Carroll
The Bhagavad Gita is a 2,500 year old Sanskrit text that offers profound insight into the deeper practices of yoga. As the seeker in the Gita metaphorically prepares for the battle of spiritual transformation, he asks his teacher a series of questions. In his answers the teacher explains the many challenges and stages of the yogic spiritual path. In this program we will explore themes from the Bhagavad Gita that are meaningful for us as modern yoga practitioners. We will use the Bhagavad Gita, by Winthrop Sargeant, as our text. Please purchase this book before your program begins.
