Update 3/17

Hello Organic Roots Family,

Let’s take a breath together: Breathe in through your nose, allowing your diaphragm to descend, belly to expand...1, 2, 3...and breathe out, slowly and fully...repeat as often as needed...We care about each and every one of you. Now...

Three announcements because we care:

1.) All group yoga classes will be cancelled through Marchin order to create social distancing and help stop the quick spread of Coronavirus. All prepaid classes may be used towards future classes. We are looking for virtual class options. We do not have any experience with hosting virtual classes so if you have any tips please let us know! Yoga asanas (postures) and mindfulness can be practiced anywhere so please continue your practice at home. Yoga boosts your immune system as well as diffuses stress. Private classes will continue as usual as there is more space and will support “social distancing”. If you would like to begin private classes you may schedule online. If you have regular private classes and do not feel comfortable keeping them due to Coronavirus please call us to cancel. 

2.) One main value of yoga and at Organic Roots is cultivating and supporting our community through selfless service. We have several people at the studio who are considered in the higher risk group for Coronavirus, some of them having no local family. If you are in this category and need assistance with grocery pickup please let us know by calling 7578096579 so that we can assist you. Please give extra support to those in the high risk group who you know personally during this time. Isolation is lonely, so a call or handwritten letter can bring a sense of connection and support as well. 

3.) Yoga Alliance has announced that due to Coronavirus Yoga Teacher Training Classes may temporarily be given online. Therefore we still plan to host Yoga Teacher Training beginning in June whether online or in person. We will still require the practicum/student teaching portion be in person. Register online.

4.) Massage-Chad and Selena are continuing massages as regular at this time. As always we change sheets, wash our hands, and clean the area between each client. If you have an upcoming appointment and have a cold or any sickness at all, or if you do not feel comfortable regarding Coronavirus, please call to cancel. 

All of this information is subject to change and we will adapt as needed. 

As always your feedback and thoughts are welcome. 

Spread Light and Love, not Coronavirus :)

Kipi and Selena
