Wake Up Yoga
2329 Parrish St., 215/235-1228,
Wake Up’s original Vinyasa yoga studio is in Fairmount; they later opened a second in West Philly (4916 Baltimore Ave.). Each studio offers two to four 90-minute classes a day varying in level of difficulty; all levels are welcome.
Wake Up emphasizes the physical, spiritual, and philosophical aspects of yoga as much if not more than the physical workout. Sanskrit (along with English) is used in classes.
Wake Up seeks to provide a nurturing, supportive atmosphere for students. Most single classes costs $13, but some are offered at the bargain price of $5.
