What we're about

Our studio offers a simple and straightforward drop-in rate of $10 for all of our classes. We are inspired to make our mind-body practice offerings affordable and accessible to as many people as possible within our community.

Awake Boulder is inspired by a desire to create a sanctuary within the community to bring together a variety of different mind-body practices.

While outwardly the practices we offer may take on different forms (yoga, meditation, tai chi, qigong and others)—each of them not only cultivates greater health and fitness from a physical standpoint, but also wellness at a deeper level that includes being in harmony and in alignment with our innermost being.

It is the latter that is the real treasure of mind-body practices. When we show up to our practices with this intention, we invite greater joy, peace, love and compassion into our lives—and by extension, our community.

We develop tools to become more aware of our inner obstacles and find ways to release them. Our lives are not separate from our practices—but a reflection of them.

We strive to create a supportive and nurturing environment both within our studio and within our practitioners. We hope you will join us on this path of self-exploration and discovery.

Tai Chi

awake BOULDER Yoga Studio

PLEASE NOTE: Effective July 2018, this class is no longer being offered in a drop-in format. To see if we're a good fit, we offer a FREE trial class. After that, our regular tuition is $90 per month or $240 per quarter. Since tai chi is taught as a sequence of movements, each class builds upon the previous class a student has attended. While we will practice together as a group, each student in the group may be learning a different part of the form. Because of this, interested prospective students can start at any time! Our classes are best suited for those inspired to practice regularly. === Tai Chi (or more correctly, Tai Chi Chuan) started as a martial art first. However, hundreds of millions of people now practice it for its health benefits and mindful aspects. It is a gentle form of movement that promotes relaxation, flexibility and balance of body and mind. Consequently, tai chi is often described as “meditation in motion.” It is deeply rooted in Daoist principles. Because of this, at the core of the practice is its observance of nature. As well as the natural flow of life. Indeed, it is from this harmony we can discover our very essence. That of inner peace and stillness. With this intention, Tai Chi at awake BOULDER has a focus on health and wellness. About the teacher: Michael Wang Michael has been a student of Chinese martial and healing arts for over 20 years and has been teaching qigong, tai chi and kung fu in Colorado since 2007 (http://boulderkungfu.com/). His martial arts training led him to explore various healing modalities, including acupuncture, massage and herbs. They are two sides of the same coin in the Chinese framework for health and wellness. Michael’s offerings through awake BOULDER have a focus on health and healing, energy management, and inviting more presence into our lives.

Tai Chi

PLEASE NOTE: Effective July 2018, our Tai Chi Chuan program has reverted *back* to a traditional class format (no drop-ins). To see if we're a good fit, please schedule a time to participate in a trial class ($10). After that, our regular tuition is $90 per month or $240 per quarter. Since tai chi is taught as a sequence of movements, each class builds upon the previous classes a student has attended. While we will practice together as a group, each student in the group may be learning and embodying a different part of the form and should therefore NOT expect a "follow along" format. However, because of this, interested prospective students can start at any time! Our classes are best suited for those inspired to practice regularly in between classes. === Tai Chi (or more correctly, Tai Chi Chuan) started as a martial art first.

Qigong (drop-ins welcome)

awake BOULDER Yoga Studio

These classes are offered as a $10 drop-in format. The first type of Qigong taught at awake BOULDER is of an “active” kind. Gentle movements blend with mindful and calm breathwork. Accordingly, this promotes the movement of blood and qi (life force energy) throughout our bodies for health and healing. Qigong can help ground us by quieting the mind. And bring our awareness back to the present moment. As well as into our bodies. Our practice is open to all ages and abilities. Lastly, they can be adapted to meet the needs of each student.
