Come Stand with Steph & Find your Balance!
Saturday 11-1PM

Stand up with Stephanie!   If you find yourself dreading when your instructor tells you it’s time for some balance poses, then this workshop is for you!

Mental and physical balance is a state of being that at times can be unpredictable. Sometimes we have it and sometimes we don’t. When you are aligned with balance, you feel confidence, patient, harmonious, and peaceful. When your balance is off you may feel frustrated or out of control.  One of the reasons balance is tough is because we don’t often need to stand on one foot in our everyday regular lives.  As we age, balance becomes harder and harder, making a standing balance practice an important part of yoga.  This workshop is designed to help students learn the important steps to finding balance on their mat.

Some of the benefits of balance is that it strengthens the feet and ankles, it engages the core and quiets the mind.

In this workshop we will learn the importance of learning how to properly engage the feet and core to aid us in our adventure to standing on one leg.  We will explore poses like eagle, extended hand to big toe, half moon and tree pose.  Class will start with a brief discussion about the postures, we will warm up the body with a nice yoga practice and conclude with some yummy stretches and then find rest.

This workshop is suitable for all levels, but it is recommended that you have a regular yoga practice.

Sweat & Surrender with Danielle!
Sunday 3-5PM

We are excited to have Danielle Orlandella back to Roots to work us hard and wring us out with her sensational Sweat & Savasana athletic based yoga flow.   Her popular Sweat & Savasana sequence  builds on elements of yoga, fitness, plyometrics and pilates. This creative sequence is constructed to stretch and strengthen the appropriate muscles leading towards a peak pose.

With inspiration from Ashtanga yoga, class warm up begins with traditional sun salutations engineered to build heat within the body in preparation to strengthen and lengthen the muscles.

This is then followed by a ladder flow where poses are stacked one after the other .

Class ends with a deep stretch and sweet savasana, leaving you feeling accomplished, proud and rejuvenated!

This class is not recommended for beginners.
