What yoga do we offer?

Aerial yoga:

Aerial Yoga is yoga practiced with the use of a hammock made from soft silk fabric which has some flexibility. The hammock is anchored into a ceiling from 1 or 2 points. Here at Rooted Shala we offer different types of Aerial yoga. Including Aerial yoga where the hammock is hung at different heights (high/low/ankle height). Our classes include Aerial Yin/restorative, Gentle Aerial yoga, level 1 Aerial yoga, and beginner Aerial yoga.

Aerial yoga allows you to get deeper into poses - allowing for decompression and relaxation, but also working your core and limb strength. Aerial yoga offers support where mat yoga can not, it is almost like having your very own hands on Yoga teacher! We do offer Aerial yoga Teacher training

Zoom yoga:

We also offer by donation zoom class during these times. We currently have 1 Zoom class per week on Saturday at 8am (PST).
