Milwaukee’s inviting and accessible yoga studio, Yoga Ward is conveniently located in Historic Walker’s Point with free street parking.

Yoga Ward is proud to offer the most unique and highest quality yoga classes that Milwaukee has to offer. In addition to classes and workshops, Yoga Ward also hosts a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program that is registered with Yoga Alliance.

The studio is bright, clean and spacious with exposed cream city brick. The community at Yoga Ward is very warm, friendly and supportive. Dean Farrell, the founder of Yoga Ward, had one goal in mind and that was to provide a warm and non-intimidating environment for people of all backgrounds and levels to explore mind, body and soul.

Dean quickly blossomed in the Milwaukee yoga community upon his arrival. His unique flow and style was something new to Milwaukee. Always keeping a down to earth sense of humor, Dean had a way of making people feel comfortable with their practice. More men started to show up in classes, creating a diverse group of students. Word kept traveling and classes were packed with the demand for more. In addition to busy classes throughout the city, Dean maintained a large base of private clients. Students began making requests for Dean to start his own studio so he could offer more classes. Yoga Ward opened and quickly grew with loyal students spreading the word.

Whether you are new to yoga, looking for a relaxing class or want the ultimate workout, Yoga Ward has a class for you!

I have been a member of Yoga Ward for some time now, and I can not sing enough praise to them. Dean and the rest of the staff are a group of amazingly kind, caring, and helpful individuals. They truly want to see each member learn and grow in their practice, no matter what level Yogi you are. And on top of that their customer service is top notch! There is no air of competition or exclusivity there, it is one of the most peaceful studios I have ever been to in Milwaukee. Even after I moved across town I gladly make the drive over to Walker's Point to sooth my body and mind and recharge my soul. I would recommend Yoga Ward to anyone and everyone who would like to begin or further their practice, there is no better place to be....and you will not regret it :)

As you probably know, yoga can get rather expensive, so for the last year, I've been purchasing Groupons/Livingsocials to different yoga studios around the Milwaukee area. I wanted to get a feel for several studios before necessarily purchasing a costly package. While I have enjoyed most of the studios I've visited, Yoga Ward is the first one I've bought a package to immediately following my Groupon. I really love the vibe at Yoga Ward - it isn't pretentious, it's a great studio space (some are really cramped!), it's clean, and I really enjoy the instructors I've had thus far. I've regularly attended two different classes - the Tuesday 5:30pm Vinyasa Flow Class with Rebecca and the Saturday 9:45am Yoga Sculpt Class with Melanie. Both are awesome classes and challenging in their own ways. I do have to say, I was hesitant about using weights during yoga, but it's genius, and you will not find another class like this in Milwaukee. It incorporates weights into yoga poses, and you find yourself having an awesome workout all while doing yoga. And you feel the burn! Seriously, I can't rave enough about this class. I've also taken Kinetic Flow with Dean (the owner) and it's a challenging (in a good way) class. The Friday evening class (5:30pm) is a relaxing reset after a long week. The class times also work great for my 8am-5pm schedule, and the location couldn't be more convenient. I work in the 5th Ward, so I can easily walk to class and get there on time. With lots of other studios, I would need to leave work immediately at 5pm (that never happens!) and rush to class. Not to mention, the parking can be such a hassle at certain 3rd Ward/Eastside locations that I've actually missed classes! Even though I walk to Yoga Ward, I've noticed that there's plenty of parking nearby. Needless to say, I definitely recommend Yoga Ward to anyone looking for a yoga studio! It's an extremely welcoming studio with awesome instructors. Do yourself a favor and check out some classes :)

I have been going to Yoga Ward for over a year now and absolutely love it! The classes are all amazing and I am challenged, yet relaxed after each one. No class is the same- there is a true variety with each and every class. Everybody is practicing at different levels, which makes me feel comfortable when practicing, and pushing myself to the next level. The atmosphere is inviting and relaxing. It is the best yoga studio I have come across in the area!

I am so glad I found Yoga Ward! Before happening upon this studio (via Groupon) I had only taken a few gym-sponsored yoga classes and I never really felt like yoga was a good work out. Holy moly, was I wrong?! Dean's (instructor and owner) Kinetic Detox classes are just what I was looking for. You get a good cardio, strength training, stretching and relaxation class all in one. Dean provides thoughtful instruction with a dash of humor that really makes you feel welcome. I definitely recommend Yoga Ward to anyone in the Milwaukee area!

As a Reiki practitioner, I have been interested in exploring the Yoga world for several years. Upon my first visit to Yoga Ward, I was impressed with how clean, calming and centered the space was. I am looking forward to taking classes in 2015, and incorporating my Yoga Ward experience into my personal and professional life!

I absolutely love this yoga studio! I started attending this studio after using a groupon, and I have been hooked ever since! Dean's Detox Kinetic Flow Class is one of my favorite classes! He is always challenging us, but I still feel completely relaxed when leaving the studio!

I just moved to Milwaukee from Chicago in September - with all the stress from the move and work I got to a point where my neck and shoulders were so tense and I felt consistently on edge. My friend invited me to a Detox Kinetic Flow Yoga class with Dean Farrell. To be honest I was a bit skeptical that this would really de-stress me but mid-way through the class I started to begin relaxed and calm - the heat also really does help with this. I have been to many Yoga classes but this was by far the best that I have been to. It didn't feel mechanical - it wasn't just a set of poses. The way that Dean set up the class forced me out of my head and really made me connect with my body and my breathing. A big Thank You to Yoga Ward for provided such an amazing and much needed experience!

I've spent about 1.5 yrs at this amazing studio, while still venturing out during that time to keep a bit of variety. But I have to admit, the quality of each class is still incomparable and it keeps me loving each time I am there. Dean's class is amazing, and I look forward to the exhaustion followed by the complete relaxation that it brings.
