Considering the practice of yoga? Here are a few details which set our studio apart:
- Yoga Roots and Healing Arts was founded on the idea of creating a non-judgemental, safe space for people to learn, heal and grow. Compassion is our intention.
- We have clean and sanitized yoga mats, bolsters, blocks, straps, and blankets. All equipment is provided at no extra cost.
- Our instructors are seasoned teachers who are deep in their practice. Most are bodyworkers, energy healers and some are trained in a number of healing modalities and/or styles of yoga. We value yoga teachers who are well educated and have a passion for helping others.
- Our studio offers sound healing. We have a collection of antique Tibetan singing bowls, a gong, harmonium, wind chimes and a rain stick, all of which are played for your healing benefit. These sounds will take you to a place of deep peace beyond your daily concerns.
- We are also a yoga teacher training school. Tiffany Lenau, the founder of Yoga Roots is the Dean of, Be the Love, a 200 hour Yoga Alliance registered school. There is a real commitment to learning, you can expect to explore more than the poses. Our practice expands off our mats and into the way we think, feel and how we can heal and let go.
If you think you can't do yoga because...
You have an old injury, are overweight, have had a knee or hip replacement, haven't exercised in a while Yoga meets you right where you are. All poses are easily modified to accommodate each individual body, regardless of age, ability or fitness level. There is no better way to ensure comfortable healthy aging than lubricating each major joint through full range of motion on a regular basis. Yoga strengthens the cardiovascular system, improves immune function and calms the nervous system. It keeps you young, strong, and pain free.

If you can breathe, you can do yoga, Every Body can. In fact it might be JUST what you need!
"Simply put, yoga has changed my life. I have always been intrigued by the practice, but spent much of my life engaging in more conventional forms of exercise. I have run countless races, and finished my first marathon last year. Having hit a physical and emotional plateau, I decided to try yoga. I had gone to a couple classes in the past, but had never given the practice a fair chance to take hold in my life. The changes I have felt almost immediately are beyond compare. Not only is Vinyasa a phenomenal physical workout, I have found a peace and clarity that I did not know existed. I am continuously discovering the potential that yoga and meditation bring to my life and the life of those around me. It is a beautiful thing and I am eternally grateful for the opportunity that my intuition has provided me."
“I achieved yoga bliss through the guidance of the talented women at Yoga Roots. My bliss took a while to achieve, six months of practice. Yoga and diet have given me the best body I have had in 30 years. I smile more and have a lighter step all day after a good core work out. Beginner and gentle yoga have given me a mental peace. My knees do not hurt and I have experienced relief from back pain. So if you are overweight with high blood pressure or any sort of challenge, I urge you to give yoga a try.”
