Please visit our members' studios


When you are searching for a new yoga studio to visit I'm sure most of them share a lot of the same classes and even qualities. It is when you dig a little deeper and finally get in for a class when you realize that Awaken Yoga and Meditation Center is different. We are a traditional practice center devoted to using all the tools of yoga and meditation to Awaken your own true nature. Each of us is inherently perfect and complete, lacking nothing. As we learn to fully Awaken our natural potential we experience and manifest joy, peace and happiness for ourselves, those we love, and all beings. Michael Aronoff the owner and founder of Awaken Yoga and Meditation Center has been studying and practicing for over 35 years. His passion for teaching yoga and meditation is admirable. Awaken's teachers are all dedicated in their own unique ways but share their passion for teaching with Michael. The students, new and old, are loyal to us for we have become a true yoga family. We could only hope that our family continues to grow.
Awaken Yoga and Meditation center is located at 52 Broadway, Greenlawn, NY. The best number to reach us at is (516) 551-4910. We have all levels of yoga and meditation classes suitable for beginners up to advanced and we hold workshops and events monthly from study groups to different 4 week long series. We also are a Registered Yoga School and offer Yoga Teacher Training. Take advantage of Michael's experience and knowledge in September 2016 for a 200-hour or 300-hour course and become certified by the Yoga Alliance. You can read more in depth about teacher training, each class, event and workshop as well as a little background on the studio and teachers at our website
Michael and the Awaken teachers hope to see some new beautiful faces to join our family! 


Yogashakti Yoga Center has been a staple in Queens since 1982.  Founded by Ma Yoga Shakti International Mission located at 114-41 Lefferts Boulevard, S. Ozone Park. 

Students of all ages and ability are drawn to this yoga center for many reasons. It is highly regarded in the industry as one of the best yoga centers in the tri-state area. Mokshapriya Shakti the matriarch who runs the studio has been studying and teaching Yoga Philosophy for over 40 years. When a student enters the doors of this facility they immediately feel welcome and know they are in good hands.  Greeted by Mokshapriya or another yoga teacher, they are given what they need to begin class. Every student is encouraged to go at their own pace. A typical class includes a first time yoga student, a person recovering from an injury, several yoga teachers, men and women, adults and children.  There are ongoing classes all week long at various times to fit everyone's schedule and needs. At Yogashakti, there is something for everyone.  Our classes include Hatha, Restorative, Gentle, Spanish and Vinyasa Flow. Tuesday nights after yoga class there is a meditation group. 

Yogashakti  believes in community. Sundays at Yogashakti are a special treat. After class enjoy homemade chai and treats and a chance to connect with the community that quickly becomes family. Following the chai, there is an ongoing lecture series for those who are interested in philosophy.  We also have a movie night and Kirtan once a month Yogashakti is also the home of YTTI (Yoga Teachers Training Institute of Long Island), a school that has graduated over 250 of the best yoga teachers in New York. YTTI offers a 200 hour and 500 hour Teacher Training.
