Waking Yoga offers inclusive and trauma-informed 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.
