Roots Yoga Studio Reviews
I’m an RYT myself, so want to be sure that where I practice has sound teaching technique– Ginger has selected excellent people who are vigilant about safety and working within the limitations. It’s a very personal experience and you always feel welcomed, encouraged and supported; the time here just flies. There’s a nice balance of class choices geared to different needs, plus special workshops. Scheduling and sign-up is easy even at the last minute. You only have to look at the smiling faces of people leaving class to know it’s a special, happy place.
After going through an extremely difficult time post partum, at 22 I developed severe anxiety on top of sudden onset type 1 diabetes. I started taking yoga classes at my local gym and decided to try Roots yoga after getting my toes wet. I got the one week pass for new students and have been there 3 times this week. It is truly an incredible place. The studio has benefited me more in the past week than any doctor has even come close to. It brings me a feeling I haven’t felt in years. I highly recommend this studio to anyone who wants to try yoga for any reason. The instructors and owner are just as wonderful!
I can’t say enough good things about this yoga studio! Ginger is an amazing instructor and always in touch with the class and her students. She begins and ends the class very spiritually, which helps tremendously after a long day at work. The crux of the 75 minute class is a great workout while maintaining that spiritual expression. The other instructors are amazing also, but I have a soft spot for Ginger! Each instructor has their own style but all are very fitting with the Roots yoga theme and are very talented. They offer a variety of classes depending on what you’re in the mood for and you can sign in online, making it incredibly easy to make a plan and stick to it (which sometimes I find hard to do otherwise when working a long day… which is exactly when you NEED yoga!). I’m so thankful that Roots Yoga brought back my inner yogi!!
As an older man I feel your classes perfectly complement other “gym” related exercises I do. The stretching, flexibility, and opening up of the joints, etc… greatly increase mobility and help with running, weights, etc… less tight after the other exercises, and it seems less likely to incur injuries, back spasms, etc…. a more youthful feeling. Personally I have been more than pleased with your instructors and the classes we have taken, and I know my daughter feels the same.
My practice had started at Roots 1 year ago. It was a very long and difficult decision for me to be able to trust my own body. I had a spinal fusion done in 2008 for adult onset of idiopathic scoliosis. I now adorn 2 rods fusing T1-L3 with about 30 screws. I was once living on heavy pain medication and had done numerous physical and aquatic therapy as well as acupuncture on a routine basis for years. After so many years of this, it became expensive even with co-pays (acupuncture was NOT covered!). After getting an OK from my orthopedist to give yoga a try I got up the courage to just go in and chat with an instructor to see if there were others like me.. There’s no machine, no weights, and NO judgement! I chatted with Ginger, and she had eased my mind that this was totally up to what my body could do and what I was comfortable doing without pain. I tried a beginners class with Linda, she was fantastic! Super calming and great about explaining everything. I am now HOOKED! I have learned to modify certain poses and the instructors are great about explaining how to do them even without me having to ask. They also tell you that not everyone can do all the poses and that it’s ok! Some people have tight hips or in my case a fused spine. I know I’ll never probably get into crow or scorpion and that my full bow looks funny but that’s fine with me. I’m improving and learning and succeeding is many other poses, particularly with balance, which is great! Since starting at Roots, I’ve decreased my pain meds by 2/3, have great energy, and have much more self confidence in knowing I’m doing something great for myself and I’m getting better with every class. My once atrophied shoulders are appearing like they’re back to normal! I am loving heated flow with Karen on Monday mornings and Thursday nights with Ginger… My next challenge will be yoga Pilates on Friday nights which I am excited to try this week. Don’t tell yourself you can’t… Just try it!
