Bending over backwards for someone wins you their loyalty, which explains why so many presidential debates devolve into yoga-pose-holding contests. Start building support with today's Groupon: for $22, you get three drop-in classes at Root Yoga Center (up to a $48 value).
Composed of more than a dozen well-trained instructors, Root Yoga Center's staff cultivates mind-and-body balance by teaching a quartet of yoga styles throughout a seven-day schedule. Hearts pump during Vinyasa yoga, which pairs a sweeping series of poses with deep-breathing exercises. Forrest yoga aims to flush toxins and foster emotional rejuvenation through purifying and healing pose work, and Turbo Dog sessions repackage the principles of Forrest yoga into a one-hour stress-besting fest. Yoga Playground, open only to advanced yogis and unusually bendable seesaws, invites students to contort communally by testing out tricky inversions and partner poses. The studio stratifies its courses by skill level, so stretchers should enlist in ground-level, up-level, or expert classes, depending on the length of their mat resumes.
Root Yoga Center
Root Yoga Center's owners created their studio to give clients a space to explore their metaphorical roots by examining their physical, spiritual, and emotional bodies through yoga practice. This goal is reflected in the studio’s philosophy, which emphasizes balance, encourages beginners to take risks, and focuses on the healing powers of yoga epitomized by the now-famous "Kiss the Boo Boo" pose. From Vinyasa to Forrest and Anusara Flow, many yoga modalities are practiced in the studio depending on the class session’s teacher and difficulty level.
Every teacher at Root Yoga Center is an experienced yogi and puts the school's philosophy into practice during regular classes or supplemental practices such as qi gong, physical therapy, and nutritional counseling. The instructors’ schedules are packed as well: classes take place all day, every day, and the staff routinely hosts community events and workshops.
