Iyengar
Krishnamacharya, the grandfather of modern yoga said,… ” Make yoga propaganda and get the message out there.”

B.K.S Iyengar revitalized the ancient Indian discipline and has inspired tens of millions around the world up until his recent passing on Wednesday of last week.

As yogis, we know the power of our practice and the power of transformation.   Yoga heals on so many various levels- physical, spiritual, and emotional.  Both students and instructors  have heard so many touching stories and triumphs.   No doubt yoga heals!

You may not even realize that the person on the mat next to you has come to heal, whether it be from sickness, grief, loss, divorce, injury, anxiety, depression, or whatever.  It’s just a matter of time until all of us has something we have to work through.   Despite this, you all bring your spirit, support and adventure into the studio.

Recently, I have seen so many kind, loving, friendly and supportive gestures before, during and after class among our students.   You have shared your stories, given hugs, grabbed a coffee, sent your pregnant friends to pre-natal, brought friends to our classes, told friends about our workshops and have spread word about Roots to those who you know need a little yoga in their lives.

We are all doing our part both on and off the mat to share and spread word about the gift of yoga!  Keeping both Krishnamacharya and B.K.S Iyengar’s teachings and dreams alive.  We should feel proud of this fact and of our community.

The amount of gratitude I have come to feel because you choose to practice at Roots is immeasurable. For that and all of the above, I thank you!

Looking forward to Fall unfolding!

Love,
Ginger

Be Like Brit Solar Panel Project

June 16th, 2014 | Posted by ginger in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

It takes thousands of dollars to run the Be Like Brit orphanage each month. To eliminate their electric bill, they have decided to switch their energy intake by adding solar panels to Be Like Brit.

This worthwhile project will cost $65,000. Granite City Electric in Worcester has spent the last six months designing a 30 KW solar project to BLB. Once installed, the solar system, in conjunction with a battery back up system, will provide 100% of the electrical needs of the orphanage. This is not only financially responsible, it will help save the planet!

Granite City Electric is generously donating a 22ft box truck this summer to transport the materials to Miami port and then to Haiti. Also a big Thank You to Solect in Massachusetts for donating a generous amount of solar panels, and sending two workers to come and install them in Haiti! The installation date for the solar system is the last week of August. Please help them accomplish the ambitious and worthwhile goal!

Sponsor:
Solar Panel $400
Double Battery $200
Single Battery $100
Roof Bracket $50
