Although it’s hidden from view—nestled in one of the strip malls in town—Awakening Yoga Studio has become a home for all the dedicated yogis in Richmond Hill. When Awakening opened in May 2011, there were plenty of skeptics that thought the studio would never survive in such a small town. Three years later, Awakening is doing better than ever and has no plans for going anywhere any time soon.

This small studio is the product of hard work and dedication from owner and instructor, Lisa Ripa E-RYT 200. What started as an interest in yoga soon became a passion: “I began taking yoga classes at various gyms and studios many years ago as a way to include deep stretching in my regular exercise routine. I quickly learned that yoga was so great for me, both physically and emotionally.” Ripa hopes to show everyone the amazing benefits yoga can have for you physically, emotionally, and mentally…and Awakening Yoga Studio is the path to this enlightenment.

Back in 2011, Awakening was offering classes out of a cramped room above the chiropractor’s office near one of the busiest railroads in town, but this location certainly didn’t stop people from showing up to practice. Flash forward to 2014 and Awakening has moved to a spacious studio that can accommodate up to 45 people. In front of the open room where yogis come to practice, there is a selection of yoga attire for sale—cute shirts that are the envy of all students.

The space also lends itself to the countless events Awakening hosts for the yoga community, like a workshop with Patrick Beach or a 30-day yoga challenge. Up to 20 classes are offered per week. Vinyasa, Hot Flow Yoga, Slow Flow, Mommy & Me, and community classes are always on the schedule, which changes monthly. Classes range from 60-75 minutes.

Practicing at Awakening will make you fall in love with yoga thanks to their warm and welcoming instructors. Whoever is leading the practice will be sure to provide individual attention to each student. All classes are free of judgment, which allows everyone to fully immerse themselves in the practice.

Awakening—Richmond Hill’s only dedicated yoga studio—is open seven days a week. So, what are you waiting for? Grab your mat and go practice.
