  • Private Acupuncture 1 hour $85.00 Book Now
    Sliding Scale Fee $60 - $120 (please note: online booking is available only at the list price, sliding scale must be paid in person).

    Acupuncture is one of several therapies used in the healing system of Chinese Medicine. It has a 2,000-year old written history in China, but dates back before human history was recorded. It is commonly practiced throughout East-Asia, though historical evidence shows variations of acupuncture in the ancient Americas as well.

    The ancient Chinese first mapped pathways along the body through which “qi” travels (the closest translation for “qi” is “vital energy.”) They found that illness occurred when the qi flow was interrupted in these energy pathways. By inserting extremely fine needles in specific points along the pathways, the smooth flow of qi is re-established and organ functions are regulated. This can help relax muscles, reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and soothe the mind and heart.

  • BROWN SUGAR: Yoga for Folks of Color 2 hours $33.00 Book Now
    $20 - $45* Sliding Scale
    No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

    What: Brown Sugar is a healing space. It's a space where people of color can move, breathe and circle together as we explore mindfulness practices and celebrate our diverse community. Brown Sugar is a body-positive, queer friendly space.

    How: We begin and end each class in a circle where we can share and reflect upon our experiences. As we move through the yoga postures with awareness, healthy alignment, and a focus on the breath, we begin to attune to our own and our collective wisdom.

    Why: Because folks of color need a healing space where they don't have to worry about being "othered". Because racism exists, within the world and within the yoga community. Because people of color are hugely underrepresented in yoga studios, so we're letting it be known that there's a space there for us too.

    Who: Taught by an experienced POC teacher, the magic of this class is created by the energy of each person who enters this sacred space. All experience levels, sizes, abilities, genders, and ages are welcome.

    * After careful consideration, the pricing structure for BSY going forward will be on a sliding scale from $20.00 - $45.00, as is the fee for most 2 hour workshops held at Third Root.No one will be turned away for lack of funds. This change is intended to allay some of the expense to the facilitators for supplies and location use in collaboration with Third Root while keeping the workshop financially accessible to the community.

CTZNWELL is pleased to host one at Third Root on March 6 from 6:45-8, led by Third Root teacher Ximena Savitch and supported by Aditi Dhruv (Third Root teacher alum), and visited by a minimum-wage worker who will share their story.

  • Headstands 101: go upside down from the inside out! 2 hours $20.00 Book Now
    This workshop explores the anatomy, mechanics and energetics of what master BKS Iyengar calls the "king" of all yoga poses: Sirsasana, headstand. If you have been hesitant to practice headstand on the fly, you are wise; the pose asks much of the muscles supporting the delicate cervical spine, and requires attentive entry and exit, a strong core and a good head on your shoulders. This approach encourages both caution and confidence. We will explore this powerful pose through lecture and movement, with a particular focus on strengthening and stabilizing the neck and core. There are many ways to experience headstand fully without necessarily embodying the "full expression" of the pose, so come curious and willing to play with multiple variations of this shape for an uplifting experience.

The Yamas & Niyamas form yoga’s foundational principles: the Yamas (social practices – non-violence, truthfulness, non-stealing, energetic moderation, non-grasping), and the Niyamas (personal observances – cleanliness, contentment, discipline, self-study, devotion). Discussion will include a review of all 8 limbs for contextual grounding, as well as brief history of Sri Patañjali’s Yoga Sutras, and an overview of several commentaries on this text. This workshop encompasses self-inquiry & social justice; while it is study based, the session will include a brief asana practice & meditation.
