Finger Lakes Yoga Center Canandaigua Reviews
I don't know what I did without Roots in my life before! I have been to multiple yoga studios and none of them seemed to fit. I tried out Roots and fell in love. I started with the beginners class and I now go every Tuesday night to Ginger's class. Just putting this out there, Ginger is amazing!! I have so much more control over my stress and breathing. Never did I think I would learn how to clear my mind and meditate. If you are looking for the perfect yoga class go here!! Every class Ginger holds is different and she really helps you become a better yogi. Try her out and you'll fall in love!
I'm hesitant to write this review because I don't want to share this hidden gem! This is my go to yoga studio because of the welcoming environment and the variety of classes. Shout out to Tina and Linda for always being constructive, positive and a joy to learn from. I absolutely love the Yoga Pilates class Tina has, it kicks my butt way more than any Pilates studio ever has- I was sore for two days after and I work out a lot! Linda's beginners yoga is a no-judgement zone where I know I can work on making my moves more defined as I get more comfortable with the practice.
I moved to Massachusetts about a year and a half ago and as an avid yogi I was desperate to find a studio. Since I work in Burlington and drove past Roots one day, I just had to try it out and absolutely fell in love. I love love love Monique and Ginger's heated flow classes. The classes are a great work out and perfect for mind and body rejuvenation. All of the teachers really read the students well and tailor each class to how the students are feeling. One day I rushed into class late from work, telling my friend about a car accident I almost just got into and Monique overheard and sensed my stress level and created such a perfect calming class to match my needs and all the other students. 10/10 would recommend! Classes for all levels!
I have been coming to Roots for almost 2 years now , and I totally love it here! I usually take the beginners class with Julie who is so welcoming and makes everyone feel comfortable whatever level they are at!! I can't wait to get on the mat each week!!!!
I stopped into Burlington for a weekend visit and this studio lives up to its name. The people, instructors, and practice are genuine, inviting and grounded in community. Thank you for a great weekend of practice.
