“Roots Yoga Studio was born of the idea that a group of people practicing yoga together could be instrumental in the shaping of a neighborhood.”

We couldn’t agree more! This yoga studio has been open in Spring Arts for 2 years offers an array of classes for yogis of all levels. They have new summer specials listed on their website: 3 classes for $25 or $49 for one month of unlimited yoga!

The most exciting news coming from this studio is that they will be teaching classes in the Pop Up Garden on Fridays throughout the summer! Starting this week, Erik is teaching a mid-day stretch in the outdoor space at 10th and Hamilton Streets. Is there a better way to kick off a Summer Friday?!?
