About Awaken Yoga
Awaken Yoga was founded by Jennifer Langsdale in 2006. It started as a mobile business, where Jennifer would do home visits for clients with various therapeutic needs, and group classes at various locations around the Northeast Ohio area.
Then it transformed into a private yoga business and Yoga School. Jennifer began with a 200 hour training program in 2008 and quickly expanded it into a Yogic Studies Program and Teacher Training, as she felt 200 hours was not enough to even scrape the bucket on what yoga’s potential is.
As she continued to grow her programs and network of teachers who specialized in specific yogic subjects, she moved the school into the Shore Cultural Centre in Euclid, Ohio in 2010, and then expanded to her current location in Mentor, Ohio where Awaken Yoga now houses two spacious studios for the school & studio classes, healing arts rooms and a yoga shop & book store. She wanted a warm, intimate space where people feel invited when they walk in, and not intimidated. This is the space you will find Awaken Yoga in today.
Awaken Yoga strives to be your source for living yoga. When you walk into the studio, you will be educated, supported and guided in all things yoga and healing.
At Awaken Yoga, we provide you with the expertise and ambiance needed to support a holistic yoga experience: Yoga Classes, Healing Arts treatments such as reiki, massage, and yoga therapy, and a Yoga Alliance registered Teacher Training School. Our shop supports your take-home experience of yoga and healing arts. Our teachers support your needs, ailments, questions and make you feel comfortable being who you are.
Our teachers are mostly trained by Jennifer at Awaken Yoga, and the ones who are not are chosen for being well-educated, versatile teachers who take very good care of their students. We all understand the journey it takes to get here, so we are patient, compassionate, and excited to work with all of our students.
