I've never feel so good in my own skin as I do when I leave Self-Awakening Yoga Studio. They offer many types of classes at all different times of the day so I know I can always get my fix. The studio is beautiful with hardwood floors and no crazy mirrors to distract from your practice. I've told so many people about this studio and they've all loved it! Beginners welcomed with open arms :)
Best thing - the kid's yoga! My 13 year old hockey player won't miss a week! He has found so many benefits from his sessions - increased core and leg strength, breath control, the ability to focus while he's in big games...
A true treasure that I am so glad to have found!

I've practiced yoga at Self Awakening Yoga Studio for the last two months and it's been my best experience with yoga yet! My favorite part of the studio is the welcoming environment. You're always encouraged to move at your own pace and be comfortable with what your body can do at the moment. This does not mean that you aren't challenged to improve--the teachers continually motivate you and provide concrete ways to guide you to the next level. Additionally, the variety of class offerings ensure that you won't ever get bored or plateau in your practice.
I've noticed gains in many areas since coming to Self Awakening but I am particularly aware of how my breath support has improved. I sing in a community choir and breath support is key to singing with any level of success. Since practicing yoga here regularly (where breath support is one of the most important facets of class) it's been a lot easier for me to hold notes longer--even in complicated classical pieces that require a lot of work!
I'm moving away from the area soon and won't be able to practice at Self Awakening on a regular basis but I plan to drop in on occasion when I'm back in town. I will truly miss seeing Barbara and all the teachers on a weekly basis and encourage anyone on the fence about trying yoga to come to Self Awakening!
Love it, love it, love it!!!! For me yoga is as important as eating . . .is as important as breathing!!! And Self Awakening is the perfect place to practice. I discovered Self Awakening a few years ago when my home practice needed a boost. Since then I have felt blessed over and over. Self Awakening has it all: a lovely, welcoming physical space; a lively and genuine owner; knowledgeable and passionate instructors; and most importantly, that intangible yoga vibe that makes great yoga studios great.
Forget the gym! Self Awakening Yoga Studio is the best place I've found in 25 years of exercising and weight training. Yoga provides one of the best workouts an athlete could ever look for. You get a powerful strength workout, a surprisingly strong cardiovascular workout, and you get to do the stretching that you ignored in your teens and 20's. I feel 10 years younger after 6 months of consistent practice. Self Awakening Yoga is inviting and warm. The first time I went, I really felt like they not only wanted me to be there but wanted me to succeed in my practice there. You definitely don't get that at a traditional gym! Not only am I hooked on yoga, but I'm hooked on Self Awakening Yoga Studio. They've got my membership for life!

I love the studio and the teachers, especially Barbara. It is one of the nicest ones I've been to. The bamboo floors are beautiful and it's nice and open with lots of windows. I always feel wonderful after a class here. There are also tons of props to use which is always nice to have a choice and try new things out. Worth checking out...you won't want to leave.

I have been going to this studio for a few months and I have nothing but nice things to say about it. You just have that comfortable and relaxing feeling from when you first walk in to when you leave. I have done yoga before and I didn?t continue because of the environment that I was learning wasn?t great. So one day my co-workers and I had decided to do something together and we can all do so we joined this wonderful Yoga Studio. I have felt like I learn so much and on my own pace also. I never had to worry about being pushed to do something that I can?t do. You leave all your worries and troubles at the door and focus on doing something great for yourself. The owner and teachers that I have met there are very friendly and positive. Overall I love this studio!!! And will be going there for as long as I could.
I absolutely love practicng yoga in this room! I love the entrance way and the ability to be in a separate practice space so those who are already settled in aren't caught up in those who are still arriving! Every teacher here is knowledgable and attentive to those who need variations. You will find the level you need and the times are great! Barbara, the studio owner is warm and genuinely glad to see you when you arrive. I can go on, but I could never say enough about how much I like practicing here. It's my home away from my own practice ;). JM Belzile, RYT
I am new to Yoga and what a wonderful place to begin this journey!! Barbara the owner makes you feel so comfortable from the minute you walk through the door until you leave!!!! The staff and teachers are so positive and Julia the foundation teacher on Tuesdays is so encouraging and caring with each student! I use to be in a lot of pain with shoulder impingement syndrome and since I have started Yoga classes it has improved dramatically!! They have such positive energy that it makes you want to keep attending this wonderful studio every week! I just can't say enough of how much I enjoy going every Tuesday to my Yoga class, it feels like home :)

Self Awakening studio has blown me away with it's energy, teachers, and owner! There is a personality to each class I attend and when I walk out I feel like a NEW WOMAN. There is beauty in the studio, dedication in the air, great workouts and ways to calm way down and let go. I haven't seen a studio like this since living in Boston and I'm so glad there's an amazing place right in Salem.
Self Awakening Yoga studio is a place where everyone is friendly and will give you personal attention. You will feel at home and the instructors are always available for questions and show personal involvement and care for their students.
All instructors are certified in various Yoga disciplines, so you get a nice blend of styles.
You will feel included and never excluded...
The owner Barbara is wonderful! She is so nice, attentive and welcoming. I remember the first time I came to the studio I was nervous because I had never done a flow class & one on one she took the time with me to go over the poses & how to modify if I needed it.
I highly recommend this studio for any and all who are interested in Yoga or who have been practicing for years.
I love this place. I remember when I found it, feeling like it was a hidden jewel amongst the businesses of Rt. 28. The studio is beautiful and makes for a very serene place to practice. The teachers I've taken class with are amazing. Julia will light you up and make you feel playful. Arielle will get you grounded and tuned in. Lynn will get you standing in your power. Barb, owner and teacher, eminates the most wonderful energy. There is no doubt when you meet her or take her class that she is full of passion for yoga, full of love for every student, and just so wonderful to be around. The space is gorgeous, but it's the teachers that make it such a postive place to practice. I still have other teachers to take class from, but from my experience so far I know I'll be pleased.

I cycle off and on....around 100 miles per week. I was first introduced to yoga by my wife who has been practicing since 2004.
There are many types of yoga and many great yoga studios, but Self Awakening offers the largest variety of teachers and class styles in the local area.
My cycling has improved as a result of these offerings and I highly recommend this studio to all seeking strength, balance, flexibility and overall improved performance both on and off their mat!

As an avid gym member, I was doing yoga at my gym until a friend gave me a gift cert. to Self Awakening. This studio has the most amazing energy, fabulous staff, and best of all, a truly life changing work out. Their website is easy to use and Barbara (the owner) is very informative about any changes to class times, etc.
If you are practicing as a beginner or an experienced yoga person, I HIGHLY recommend this studio.
