tree and buddha

We are giving away trees to thank you for choosing to practice with us over the past 3 years!

Advice from a tree…

Stand tall and proud.
Sink your roots into the earth.
Be content with your natural beauty.
Go out on a limb.
Drink plenty of water.
Remember your roots.
Enjoy the view!

Don’t forget to take your sapling home after class.   We look forward to continuing to grow together!

On June 15th Roots Yoga will turn 3!  What an incredible, enjoyable, and rewarding journey it has been.   We’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our students for choosing to practice at our studio, and a thank you to all of you who have become an integral part of the special community that we have created together.  What an honor and privilege it is for us to serve a group rooted in kindness, commitment and intention. You have been so important to our growth and we are grateful to you for helping to support and nurture our growing studio over these past three years.

For many of us, it seems like life is getting faster, our stress levels are increasing, and there is less and less time to fit everything into a day.   So again, we thank you for making Roots Yoga a part of your life.

We have been blessed with not just our students, but by our special team of instructors who blend so well together to create the supportive and cozy fabric of our studio.  It is through your openness and our instructor’s friendly, encouraging and approachable spirit that creates such an enjoyable experience and wonderful welcoming feel.   It has been said that it feels like a ‘big warm hug’ when you walk through our doors.

We are dedicated and committed to continuing to provide you with this sacred space, where the ancient tradition of yoga is honored and where you can continue to bring your mind, body, and spirit together.

With the deepest gratitude,
Ginger & all of us at Roots!

Translated as “Yogic Sleep”, yoga nidra encourages a systematic relaxation of the body while the mind enters a deep state of meditative awareness.   There is nothing required of you but to lay down, listen and give yourself permission to rest, balance and restore and connect with your inner peace.  Transform stress and anxiety while increasing health and wellness.  Join us on our journey of inner healing!

We know that during the cold months students wanted to get right on into the toasty studio to escape the cold outside, but now that spring and the warmer weather is upon us, we ask that you help us with the sometimes tight transitions that we have between our back to back classes.
Please let the students in the class prior to yours exit the studio before you enter.   We have a bench and chairs for you to sit and congregate at while you let the classes exchange and unfold.
Also, we know that some of you have preferred mat locations, but please be considerate to your fellow yogis.   Buddha says, “the root of suffering is attachement”.

We look forward to practicing with you and to all that the warmer months have to offer!

Yoga Fire!
Sat. April 11th 11-1PM with TJ Mokkosian
Many styles of modern yoga offer external heat as a way to prepare the body for the practice of asana. The truth is that for hundreds of years yogis have been using heat in practice only their heat was internal. They called this force agni. Agni is said to be the fuel of a powerful force called yoga Fire capable of burning away all that blocks us from our true nature. We will break down many Agni producing techniques and learn ways to apply them to our practice leaving us open to our unique power and potential.

Stability & Mobility for the Hips
Sun. April 12th 1-3PM with Amy Leydon
This workshop will focus on creating strength and flexibility in the hips. Amy will begin class with rolling techniques to soften the connective tissue in the body. Then we will move into Amy’s Slow Flow style of Vinyasa to stretch and strengthen the hips and pelvis. You will better understand terms like abduction, adduction, internal rotation, and external rotation of the hips. Class will end with a restorative focus. Through meditative exercises, breath work and passive stretches, we will calm the nervous system and find further release through the connective tissue in our bodies. This work will help to find the balance between stability and mobility in the hips to ease pain and improve the function of your pelvis.  All levels are welcome!
