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!

Have you experienced lower back strain both on and off the mat? Almost all postures in the physical practice of yoga involve the sacrum and lower back. Along with a strong core it is important to keep the lower back open to avoid injury and release stress and tension during practice. Join Shri for this sought after workshop to discover key alignment principles to have a happy lower back during the physical practice as well as of your mat!  Come join us!  Register on our workshop tab.
