When Lauren D’Angelo and her husband, Wrentham native Chris Cocuzzo, saw the space formally occupied by Performance Pilates and Yoga they knew they had found the perfect spot for their Humble Warrior Yoga studio. “When we walked into 15 Franklin St., we really liked the character it had,” D’Angelo explained. “It felt like a really good space to build a community. We wanted a space where people of all ages and all levels can come and practice yoga.”

Community is an important concept to D’Angelo. She plans to bring in different yoga experts and instructors in an effort to build a community around the practice, exercise and lifestyle of yoga. That’s why the initial classes will be geared primarily towards the beginner with a few intermediate sessions offered. “There will be a lot of beginner classes because we want to grow with our community,” D’Angelo says.
D’Angelo has 100 hour certification with Baron Baptise. She is currently studying with Chanel Luck and Bonnie Argo and will have 300 hour certification through Radiant Yoga. She plans to have between eight and twelve different instructors to start and the studio will offer a few different variations of yoga. In addition to beginner classes, there will be relax and renew sessions offered primarily on the weekends and in the evening. D’Angelo says this is important particularly around the holidays. Heated flow classes will also be offered. “Yoga is not just about exercise,” she says. “It’s a way of life and that’s what we’re hoping to build here."
The grand opening is scheduled for Saturday. Free yoga classes will be offered from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m and 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Humble Warrior Yoga studio is located in Cook’s Hall, 15 Franklin Street, Wrentham.
