Self Awakening Yoga Studio lengthens limbs and broadens minds with classes that appeals to beginners and students of varying yoga styles and physical abilities. The studio’s eclectic schedule includes sessions such as Vinyasa flow, which combines core work, sun salutations, and deft games of hopscotch into a fluid sequence of changing poses aided by controlled breathing exercises. To ensure an even more dynamic regimen, instructors in 85-degree heated yoga classes lead students through a routine that includes inversions for ambitious attendees and alters its sequence each day, like bored strands of DNA. Drawing thoughts inward with synchronized breathing exercises, power yoga challenges experienced pupils to mimic a series of strengthening postures as instructors tweak individuals’ alignment.
The calming, pastel walls of Self Awakening Yoga Studio sport vibrant murals painted by local art critics, and the practice space’s flooring cushions soles with bamboo slats, which students can furnish with their own yoga mats or partner with one of the studio’s complimentary mats.

About Self Awakening Yoga
Self Awakening Yoga owner Barbara Sterling describes its mission as guiding students toward a sense of balance that helps them be present in their own lives. Glossy, eco-friendly bamboo floor spans 1,900 square feet of airy studio space, whose white walls are painted with large-scale lotuses and Eastern designs. The studio fosters a community atmosphere by lending books, magazines, DVDs, and CDs to students for use at home.
The studio’s instructors have a variety of reasons for coming to the practice of yoga, whether it was recommended by a doctor after an injury, the solution to physical stress from marathon running or rugby, or the life-changing vocation of a close friend. Consequently, they teach classes and workshops that address a variety of needs through a spectrum of yoga styles, including Vinyasa, heated Vinyasa, prenatal, restorative, and gentle. Memberships and private lessons are also available to let students adjust the frequency and individual attention of their own curricula.
