Roots is committed to teaching new students the basics, so that your first introduction leaves you feeling ready, confident and successful. It is important to us that you start out prepared and comfortable so that you fall in love with and stick with your practice. We want you to experience the amazing transformation that yoga can have on your over all well-being, and your life.

Please join us for this beginner workshop. We will get to know and learn each individual and their specific needs while we take things slow. We will break down the basics of our traditional yoga poses and cover how to avoid some common pit-falls like wrist strain, lower back issues, and in-flexibility that some students experience.

A strong grounding practice with proper breath technique, an understanding of how to set a firm foundation, and following the principles of alignment is essential to the success of the new yogi.

Roots is participating in a donation drive with the ‘Friends of Boston’s Homeless!
Frigid temps and snowy weather make winter months among the most difficult for individuals who are homeless.  Clothing that many of us dont’ think twice about, like gloves, hats, scarves and warm socks are luxury items for people who can’t afford them.   Let’s help those who need it most!  We are asking folks to to participate by brining in a warm item to donate.  The bin is located at the sign in desk!

Thank you!

Does this sound familiar? You leave a yoga class feeling calm, blissful and ready to unleash your boundless joy into the world only to (a) find a blazing orange parking ticket on your car (b) get stuck in traffic behind a city bus that’s stopping every 20 feet (c) read something on your phone that sends your blood pressure into orbit. We’ve all had that jarring moment when life knocks us off our post-savasana cloud back into the same-old, stressful storyline. So, how do we make that yoga zen last? Introducing the Relaxation Response (RR), our body’s built-in buffer to the stress response (a.k.a. Fight for Flight). The good news is it’s available to anyone, anytime, anywhere. In this workshop, you’ll sample a broad range of RR techniques like breathing exercises, visualization, progressive muscle relaxation and many more. With practice, these powerful skills can help you return to your natural state of balance with more ease again and again. As Jon Kabat-Zinn says, “We can’t stop the waves, but we can learn how to surf.”
