Here at Root Yoga, we are committed to joining together and rooting down deep to bring you into deeper community and practice.  We offer a wide array of classes, ranging from sweet, quiet, restorative classes to more rigorous, sweaty power classes.  

Great yoga is just part of our mission.  We exist to bring people together - with one another and with themselves.  Root is a safe place, an easy landing, a collective sigh of relief.    

We're here to support and encourage one another in a world of criticism.  We're here to root down, to live mindfully, and to rise up together.  

We really hope you join us, we'll save a spot for you.

Gentle Flow

This class focuses on building strength and flexibility through stretching, breathing, relaxing and practicing asana (yoga postures). The practice emphasizes building awareness to and connecting the body to the breath. Gentle flow calms the mind and gently stretches the body, helping students prepare for a long day ahead or to ease into a relaxing evening.


Restorative Yoga

A practice of few postures, guided relaxation, conscious breathing, and an extended final resting posture - for any level student seeking to reduce the effects of stress. Restorative yoga is designed to support a healthy nervous system and release deeply held tensions from the body and mind. A heavy emphasis is placed on the use on props for a supported and relaxed positioning of your body.


Vinyasa

Vinyasa is a dynamic style of yoga that uses sun salutations and a powerful breathing technique called Ujayyi breathing to link poses into a creative, continuous flow. This practice cultivates awareness, mindfulness and presence, as well as the excitement of new and challenging poses and sequences.


Power Vinyasa (Heated & Non-Heated)

Power Vinyasa is more body focused, where vinyasa is more breath focused. Power vinyasa focuses on building strength, by holding poses a bit longer. In a heated class, we turn the studio thermostat to 90, and turn on two space heaters in the room. You won’t get quite as sweaty as a “HOT Yoga” studio, but you will definitely sweat.


Restorative

A practice of few postures, guided relaxation, conscious breathing, and an extended final resting posture - for any level student seeking to reduce the effects of stress. Restorative yoga is designed to support a healthy nervous system and release deeply held tensions from the body and mind. A heavy emphasis is placed on the use on props for a supported and relaxed positioning of your body.


Playful Power

Leave all seriousness, self-doubt, and fear at the door. This class will be very similar to a power yoga class, but we will incorporate a playful mentality as we explore the asanas. We will focus on the joy in moving with a carefree and open heart, while exploring different poses, transitions, and flows. (Intermediate to Experienced level practitioners)


Yoga Sculpt

Yoga Sculpt is a class that incorporates hand weights and high-intensity cardio bursts for a maximum calorie burning effect. You’ll recognize all of the postures from our Vinyasa & Power Vinyasa classes. Adding hand weights offers a new challenge to traditional yoga classes. Yoga Sculpt also incorporates cardio & core exercises to get your heart pumping and your blood flowing.


Yin

Yin Yoga is a slow-moving class, which may only involve a handful of poses per class. All poses are done on the floor, and many of the poses will be supported by props, similar to a Restorative Yoga class. Where Restorative Yoga focuses on deep relaxation of the muscles, Yin Yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, its goals are awareness of inner silence. Yin Yoga is a fantastic pairing for athletes. Incorporating a weekly Yin class to your training will help balance out your body.
