Yay for Yinnnnnn!
Thursday, March 22nd 7:30-8:45 with Natalia
Yin Yoga is a slower style of yoga that targets the connective tissues in the body to create more joint mobility, muscle and fascia flexibility, and better circulation. It is a wonderful complementary yoga practice to more dynamic and invigorating yoga styles such as vinyasa flow. Floor postures are held in a relaxed, passive way from 1 – 5 minutes in order to safely access and work connective tissues such as joints and tendons.

Spring Chakra Balancing with Essential Oils
Sunday, March 25th 1-3PM with Julie & Shannon
The purpose of this workshop is to calm the mind, rejuvenate the body and place us in balance and feeling ready for the seasonal changes. This workshop will include a brief overview of Ayurveda and how it relates to the seasons and the body, a solid warm up and seven restorative poses starting at the base chakra, moving up to the crown of the head.
Restorative yoga is practiced laying on a mat with props for support. Each pose will be paired with an essential oil, affirmation and crystal that goes with the chakra. This workshop is open and accessible to all levels of student, equally beneficial for beginners and the long time practitioner.
Intro to Yoga for Beginners
Thursday, March 29th 7:30-8:45PM with Nicole & Ginger
Roots is committed to teaching new students the basics, so that your first introduction leaves you feeling ready, confident and successful.
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.
*Save the date and join us for Yoga Reaches Out on April 29th at Gillette!
