Awakened Yoga is very clean, has friendly staff and great instructors. The classes are varied with something for everyone. The practice space does not have mirrors, which I'm thankful for as I find them distracting. A budding and mature practice values how the posture feels over what it looks like.
Disappointed. Disappointing. For a studio to be catering to beginners, I don't see how anyone can come away with a good practice. The classes are by and large slow paced for beginners and yet the main studio has NO mirrors that would greatly benefit everyone to practice correct poses. I don't understand how you can run a studio with no mirrors. No one corrects you and not being able to see yourself just shows very little emphasis on improving your practice and was a poor decision on the studio's part to not have. If you don't have anyone correcting students, you at least need to put up some mirrors so that those of us who want to improve can do so. There isn't much options out here in Sugar Land and I'm still looking around for a decent place. The search continues =/
YOU CALL THIS A YOGA STUDIO???.
I've been an avid yogi for 10 years now and I've been to many studios and tried out many instructors. I have to say that this studio is rather small with awkward beams in the center of the room and they don't even have mirrors! There are much better studios in the Houston area than in this place in Sugar Land, how unfortunate for Sugar Land residents!
People should go try out Joy Yoga Studios, their studios are so much nicer. Awakened Yoga's instructors are lackluster and for the most part, BORING.
I've tried out several different instructors at Awakened Yoga and I was not impressed at all. There are only 1 or 2 that really know what they're doing. There are so many other better studios. Awakened Yoga is overpriced and overrated!!!
Great Instructors and Studio in Sugar Land. I've practiced yoga on and off for several years in the Sugar Land area. I took a meditation seminar in September which led to taking a yoga class (buy 1, get 1 free for new students) and was hooked. I take the Iyengar classes lead by Sharon Mariani. I have a high stress job and the class has made a huge impact in my life. The classes focus on stretching and holding poses with an emphasis on breathing techniques. This has helped me focus more on myself and the things I can change in life and not be so stressed about the people and things I cannot. Sharon is a great teacher and is in tune with each student at whatever level of practice they are at. I go to the 6am-7am Monday and Wednesday class, which is a great way to start the day, and the Sunday morning class. I've never been a morning exercise person but this I can do. I highly recommend the Monday and Wednesday 6am class- we are a great group and we are always glad to have new people join us. I can see a difference in myself physically and mentally which is ... several years in the Sugar Land area.

There are a variety of classes and a good schedule to match morning and evening schedules. There are heated classes for those that are in to that, kids yoga and babysitting provided for several class times. The location is very easy to access with easy parking at the back entrance. The studio is very comfortable with a great shop in front.
FANTASTIC YOGA STUDIO. Being completely new to yoga I decided to sign up to the 'Beginners Yoga' package at 'Awakened Yoga' in Sugar Land in August of this year - it was one of the best things that I have done!
Best Yoga in Sugar Land. I am grateful every day that Awakened yoga has joined the Sugar Land community. Grace has brought a wonderful studio with a great variety of yoga, with different levels, and has dedicated this studio to the art and devotion of teaching yoga. There are a variety of teachers, and ALL are great. They are as unique as their yoga practice and I have learned something from each of them, and enjoy the variety of their styles, energy, and flow. There is only one way to find out how amazing Awakened is, and that is by trying it, let it soak in, and keep trying it for at least 30 days, so that your heart, mind, body and soul can truly benefit from it. Yoga is more than physical, but there is no doubt that what you get is a physical athletic "work out". With and open mind and heart, you owe it to yourself. Yoga changed my life in so many positive ways. I hope to see you there, on your mat! Namaste.
I love Awakened Yoga!. I was so happy to see Awakened Yoga! When I saw the sign it was coming to Sugarland, I couldn't have been more excited! And, it did not disappoint. It's a wonderful place to practice yoga! The front desk staff and teachers are all so warm and kind. Never a dull moment! I highly recommend this studio!!
Fabulous Yoga Studio!. I started yoga for the first time at Awakened Yoga in March, and it has been a life changing experience. Many of the same popular teachers in Houston teach here, too. There are a wide variety of classes, so it's easy to find classes and teachers that suit you - heated vinyasa, Iyengar, Ashtanga, gentle Hatha, and beginner classes. I have become much stronger through my practice here, and it's the ideal place for me to shed the stress of my busy days after work. I highly recommend this studio!
Yoga Rocks Here!.
There's something for everyone here! I've been here since they opened and will not leave! I was reading some of the reviews below and I'm not sure these people gave it a chance!
I am a yogi that really likes sweaty, athletic yoga classes and they definitely deliver at Awakened. I love all of their heated vinyasa classes. I've been doing yoga for 10+ years and was practicing in town until they opened. The teachers are many of the same teachers at the studios in town.
They also have beginner and gentle classes for people who are just beginning. I've taken a few of them and still get a decent work out - just have to use my own practice some to do it.
The studio is HUGE compared to many studios I've been to - also very clean and well maintained. It can get crowded at times but that just shows how good the yoga is here.
Plus a really cool store - nice gifts and high quality yoga clothes too. I would recommend this place for sure.
Better Places in Houston.
I tried out the place using a groupon deal. I have to agree with the other reviewer below that I also tried the instructors there and found for the most part lackluster.
There's only a couple I would recommend, in the end I didn't even think the Groupon deal I purchased was worth it since it was difficult to find classes I enjoyed.
And the studio is designed somewhat oddly, customers park in the back and have to walk all the way to the front to sign-in for a class or sometimes you have to wait until the class in there is over before you can walk through the studio. Not what I would call "smartly designed".
