Awakened Love Warrior (ALW) is an online store based in the Bay Area, California. Awakened Love Warrior was sparked by a desire to create change within the yoga and spiritual community, to first awaken to the truth of who you are in the world and then connect to a higher purpose or compassionate action. A deepened yoga practice urges you to create a world where people of all races, religions, socioeconomic classes, sexual orientations, gender identities and abilities are seen as human beings and treated equally.
Awakened Love Warrior is led by its founder, Sonia Roberts, who formed the business in 2018, with the aim of curating, designing and creating products, workshops and events that celebrate our difference and promote compassionate action, equity and justice.
