About Waking Yoga
Waking Yoga was founded by Austin yoga teacher Jenn Wooten. Jenn is a certified yoga therapist and yoga educator who has studied yoga and mindfulness for over 20 years. She has been a beloved teacher, mentor and group facilitator in the Austin yoga community since 2004. Jenn has created a unique approach to yoga trainings and retreats that creates spaces for people to have life-transforming experiences. This is Waking Yoga.
Waking Yoga brings together highly skilled and heart-centered yoga teachers, educators, and healers in the Austin yoga community. Waking Yoga trainings and retreats help students learn to respond more skillfully to life’s stressors so they can live more courageously in pursuit of their dreams.
Waking Yoga offers therapeutic yoga classes that create a space for self-support, self-acceptance, and non-judgment. These public classes help build a strong core awareness from which one can meet the world from a centered perspective. They also build a community of heart-centered people. You can find a public class downtown or in South Austin on most days of the week.

Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the practices of Yoga and mindfulness. Yoga therapy is based on the belief that mental and physical health are highly interrelated, and that wholeness and well-being come from an integration of both.
We work with individuals with physical conditions as well as individuals with complex trauma and nervous system dysfunction. Waking Yoga's approach to working with clients is to combine movement with self-inquiry to allow for emotional and traumatic responses to be processed in and through the body.
