About Shelley Nicole
Shelley Nicole is epitome of artist/healer. She is a vocalist, songwriter, bassist, Reiki Master, crystal energy healer and yoga instructor. Shelley has been practicing Reiki for 10 years and is trained in the Usui System of Natural Healing. In addition Shelley is a certified Kripalu Yoga instructor. In her healing practice she combines the elements of touch, sound and smell to create Rock ‘n Reiki™, an innovative powerful healing experience that includes aromatherapy, crystals and sound/breath energy to heal the mind and body of energetic blockages. Shelley began her yoga journey when she learned that she had a hiatal hernia and was told that there was nothing she could do except take medication for the rest of her life. Upon hearing this, she did some deductive reasoning and realized that her issue could be resolved by strengthening her diaphragm with breath. Yoga seemed like the logical answer and she was correct. That was 10 years ago and in 2012 Shelley became a 200-hour Kripalu Certified yoga instructor and a member of the Kripalu Yoga Teachers Association. Shelley considers music part of her healing practice. As the leader of her band Shelley Nicole’s blaKbüshe, and a featured member of the bands the Burnt Sugar Arkestra Chamber and Reblleum, her lyrics and style are a powerful force.

Shelley is excited to be joining the Third Root family.

Yoga with Wee Ones - Infants (6 weeks - almost crawling)
with Jamie Tzioumis
1 hour 15 minutes minutes
Third Root’s Wee Ones classes foster a warm and welcoming community for all caregivers and children ages 0-3, helping little ones and grown-ups connect with their bodies, each other, and the physical world. Through imaginative play, singing, movement games, prop and toy exploration, and partnering, students engage in a developmentally-appropriate yoga and pranayama (breathwork) practice. Caregivers also have the opportunity to make connections with each other that can carry over outside the classroom. Laura, certified adult, child, and baby yoga teacher, offers classes that are nourishing and fun for all, in a supportive and lighthearted environment. From mommies to daddies, aunties, nannies, and grannies, any caregivers of all ages are welcome. “Infants” class is for babies who are 6 weeks through pushing back on the belly. Class focuses on developing babies’ ability to regulate their new and sensitive nervous system, introducing sensory stimulation of all kinds in a supportive way. Special attention is paid to tummy time and helping babies develop the foundation of a strong and healthy relationship of limbs to spine for future postural support and cognitive development. All activities emphasize the baby-caregiver bond, and attention is paid to supporting self-care for caregivers’ stressed minds and bodies.
About Jamie Tzioumis
From the moment I got into my first downward dog pose in 2001, I knew yoga was going to change my life and the way I connected physically with the world around me. The university I was attending as a dance and choreography major had certified an assistant to teach Ashtanga. I took her classes, and I was hooked. As my practice progressed, so did my sincerity for yoga. In 2007 while living and farming in Italy I began the discipline of practicing yoga every day, going beyond the poses and into their meanings, cultivating breathing practices and meditation. In 2013 I found a program that I connected deeply with, through which I received comprehensive training and certification to instruct yoga. I discovered in 2014 how much I love combining yoga and dance, using organic movement to inspire choreographed flows to create space and deepen my practice. I am passionate about exploring the world of teaching and sharing accessible, fun, energizing yoga with others. The incorporation of study, practicing, dancing and teaching into my life has allowed me to genuinely enjoy multitasking so that I can maximize the potential of every day.

Visit http://pocapoint.com/pp/thirdrootca/ Community Acupuncture takes place in our community room, where patients lay in comfortable, zero-gravity reclining chairs and receive acupuncture in places on their bodies that require minimum disrobing (mostly on arms, legs, and sometimes their heads.) Practitioners can needle these distal point to affect change throughout the body. This treatment model allows for a lower sliding scale charge per patient because several people are treated at once. It’s an affordable and supportive way to address health care needs, while getting the chance to relax and enjoy some quiet time. Patients can be treated alongside friends, partners, and family members. The community experience is soothing and helps break the isolation many of us deal with when seeking care.

Visit http://pocapoint.com/pp/thirdrootca/ Community Acupuncture takes place in our community room, where patients lay in comfortable, zero-gravity reclining chairs and receive acupuncture in places on their bodies that require minimum disrobing (mostly on arms, legs, and sometimes their heads.) Practitioners can needle these distal point to affect change throughout the body. This treatment model allows for a lower sliding scale charge per patient because several people are treated at once. It’s an affordable and supportive way to address health care needs, while getting the chance to relax and enjoy some quiet time. Patients can be treated alongside friends, partners, and family members. The community experience is soothing and helps break the isolation many of us deal with when seeking care.
About Rachel Casiano
Originally from Western Maryland, Rachel is a DiaspoRican acupuncturist living in South Brooklyn. Before her training in acupuncture, she worked as a health educator and patient navigator in HIV services at a community health clinic and did outreach on a mobile testing van. Primarily serving queer and trans sex workers and transient people, this experience solidified her view that centering the health needs of the most marginalized people means better care for everyone. She learned about acupuncture while volunteering with syringe exchange programs in upper Manhattan and the Bronx and seeing how acupuncture was used for detox, PTSD, and stress. The history of radical/collective uses of acupuncture, harm reduction philosophy, and her witness to the opioid epidemic in her hometown inspired her to pursue learning acupuncture. All these influences continue to guide her practice. She received her Master of Science in Acupuncture from Tri-State College of Acupuncture, and is continuing her studies of classical Chinese herbal medicine. Rachel enjoys visiting bookstores and libraries, talking to birds, making zines, and doing prisoner support work in her spare time.

I’m a fat, queer, Latina/o transperson raised and thriving in Brooklyn, New York. I’m a graduate of the Swedish Institute School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine where I studied Traditional and Classical Chinese Medicine with Jeffrey Yuen, 88th generation Taoist priest and healer. I’m also a registered nurse and use knowledge of Western allopathic medicine to support my holistic East-Asian practice, helping individuals navigating both healthcare systems. I’m a member of the Rock Dove Collective, a group of healers, providers, and activists coordinating a radical community health exchange in NYC; a former board member of the Audre Lorde Project, the first queer people of color center for community organizing in the U.S.; and NOLOSE, an organization dedicated to ending the oppression of fat people and creating vibrant fat queer culture. I have a 13-year history of trainingand teaching martial arts and have worked many years with the Center for Anti- Violence Education (CAE) as a youth educator, anti-violence activist, and crisis intervention worker. This experience has lent to my understanding of healing as a mind / body / spirit construct that includes support for individuals as well as radical responses to the institutional oppression we face as communities. In 2011 I began studying Western medicinal herbs, first with Lauren Giambrone (Good Fight Herb Company) and Ben Schwartz (Wassaic Community Farm), and in the Herbal Education Program of Third Root (with Jacoby Ballard, Karen Rose, and Stephen Switzer.)

About Prema Kelley
Since I was a young girl, I was exposed to and cultivated yogic principles that value meditation and movement as a way of life. My birth name Prema, meaning 'love and compassion' in sanskrit, sets the tone for my practice -- the more love I can offer myself, without conditions, the more I can offer others both on and off the mat. Since these values have been a part of my life from the very beginning, I have sought training to enunciate and deepen my understanding of self through movement and contemplation. Recognizing the impact of yoga, movement, and body awareness on my physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being, my desire to support others in this practice is what fuels me. I received my yoga teacher training from YogaWorks in New York City, and have specialized training with Jillian Pransky in Restorative and Therapeutic modalities of yoga. I have studied salsa, tango and contact improvisation extensively for the past decade which inform my approach of creatively "being with" others. I am a student of Body-Mind Centering and continue to train and learn from my mentors, Amy Matthews and Roxlyn Moret, of the Breathing Project and the Kinesthetic Learning Center. Language and singing, other passions of mine, contribute to my work as an adjunct professor at Hunter College in the Bilingual Education Department and my choral work with the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music.

QTIPOC Sangha & Meditation
By donation. “Without community, there is no liberation.” -Audre Lorde This donation-based offering is a weekly meditation sangha to give queer, transgender, intersex and/or genderfluid/non-binary people of color a space in which to find stillness, solitude, and community during a time when our lives (and particularly the lives of Black and indigenous people) are more overtly in the crosshairs of violence from multiple fronts. The meditation practice will incorporate space for people to share their struggles and their strategies for self-care and community care, and will facilitate relationship building among people seeking to define “healing” and “wellness” in a context in which true safety is not attainable. The circle will use a politic of radical love as a guiding force, and incorporate spiritual teachings from Buddhism, other religious traditions, and QTIPOC artivists both living and dead.

Her Hapkido and meditation practice are core to her healing journey and she strives to continue learning and deepening her practice in community.

About Kate Werning
I have strong appreciation for the need for healing spaces to share who we are and grow in community. All bodies, backgrounds, and levels are warmly welcomed to my classes, and I am trained in creating inclusive spaces attuned to welcoming differences in age, race, gender, sexual orientation, body size, and dis/ability. I am always learning more about how to do this more fully and welcome feedback, dialogue, and learning together. I offer instruction in English or Spanish. My practice is a mindful and detailed Hatha, embracing aliveness of movement while holding postures long enough to explore subtleties and feel full expression. 18 years of ballet training inform my attention to alignment. Having grown up every summer on Lake Michigan, I love to practice outside and embrace nature, and weave reflective themes into the practice, especially those related to community and collective care. katewerning.com

This open levels class combines an active asana practice followed by relaxing restorative yoga.The flow portion of class will include Hatha, Iyengar and Vinyasa techniques to build heat gently but deeply, preparing the body for the work of letting go & restoration. In the restorative portion of class, students may use props such as bolsters, blocks and blankets to support the body in postures that promote the opening of connective tissues and deeper relaxation.
