blb kids

The children in Haiti attend school a bit further into June than our children in the states, and they  have just wrapped up school and they are looking forward to Summer Vacation.  This year at BLB they have decided to have “Summer Camp” for their kids.   Camp resurrects so many memories for all that they wanted to give their children the same memories.   Everyday, the people at the BLB orphanage struggle seeing the Mountain community just outside of their walls live such a difficult life. They start working at a very young age and the average Haitian only eats 1 meal a day.   They don’t know the luxury of turning on a faucet, or using a real toilet.   In early June Len Gengel came upon the side gate at the orphanage where he saw a little mountain boy looking under the gate with his hand extended, it broke his heart.

It inspired him to propose a summer camp for some of the kids who live right outside the walls of the orphanage.     After a brief overview of Summer Camp, the staff was on board, and it was decided that they will bring in some children from the mountain community to join the 66 children of the BLB for camp this summer to give them a little relief from their difficult lives and expose them to things like swimming and reading.

LET THEIR SUMMER BEGIN!   Please join us for this 2 hour power detox flow class with a check written out to the BLB Foundation in the minimum amount of $25 on up.
Your donation will help with extra staff, supplies, and transportation needed to make this camp extra special for the kids! Register Here… https://clients.mindbodyonline.com/classic/ws?studioid=39121&stype=-8&sTG=4&sVT=7&sView=day&sTrn=9

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.

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!

 

Roots is committed to teaching new students the basics, so that their first introduction to yoga is a successful one, so they too can experience the amazing transformation that yoga can have on your over all well-being, your life, and to those around you.

Please join Terri for this beginners workshop. She will break down the basics of our traditional yoga poses and cover how to avoid 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.

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!
