Awakening Yoga Studio began as a vision in 2011 by former owner and director, Lisa Ripa. Encouraged by a friend to pursue her dream of owning her own business (amidst completing a rigorous 9 month, 200-hour yoga teacher training course) was something that Lisa knew would be a tremendous benefit to the growing community in Richmond Hill, GA. Listening to her heart and taking the plunge has been one of the most rewarding and life-changing things that Lisa admits she has ever done. AYS opened its doors in May 2011 and the studio is now blooming!
In July 2018, AYS was bought by one of our own amazing instructors, Kelly Walden. Kelly's vision and enthusiasm to continue the spirit of this commUNITY is apparent and we can't wait for you to become part of our 'kula', or yoga family!
Tucked in a warm and cozy space located in Ways Station Shopping Center, AYS has a large and open floor plan. Able to accomodate up to 40 students per class, plus a small retail and check-in area, the studio remains a calm retreat that students love.
AYS offers many styles of yoga, 7 days per week for all levels and abilities. From Hot Yoga, Yoga Basics and Forrest Yoga classes, to gentle Restorative and Yin Yoga classes, our certified and highly skilled instructors are ready to serve and teach everyday.
Workshops and events are frequently on the schedule, too. Be sure to check them out!
Also offering Private lessons, group and corporate classes upon request, there is always an opportunity to practice yoga here in Richmond Hill, GA and Awakening Yoga Studio is the only place to find it!
We look forward to serving you soon. Namaste'.
