Candlelight Restorative & Yoga Nidra Special Event
with Rachael Zafer
120.00 minutes
$32.00
$20 - $45 Sliding Scale Join Third Root teacher Rachael Zafer for a relaxing candlelit restorative yoga class. Rachael will lead you through a 90-minute yoga practice that begins with a short gentle flow and then progresses to restorative poses that are held for longer periods of time. You can expect long holds in comfortable passive postures that utilize props, gravity, and breathing to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system. The workshop will conclude with 30 minutes of Yoga Nidra, also called yogic sleep, to promote a state of deep, conscious relaxation. Please wear warm, comfortable clothing and socks. Blankets are provided but you are welcome to bring your own favorite cozy blanket or eye pillow. Workshop offered on a sliding scale $20 - $45.
About the teacher
Rachael Zafer joined the Third Root community in 2015 as a volunteer and began teaching weekly restorative and hatha yoga classes at Third Root shortly after. Rachael started practicing yoga over a decade ago in order to cope with stress and anxiety, and as a tool to prevent burnout while teaching in prisons and jails. Rachael has been teaching yoga since 2011 after completing trainings in Chicago and Colorado. Her teaching is trauma-informed, supportive, and focused on the subtle energetic connections between breath, body, and mind. When she’s not teaching yoga, Rachael is a freelance writer, consultant, and facilitator and is involved in several prison education and justice initiatives. Rachael lives in Flatbush, Brooklyn with her husband and two cats.

Realizing Your Rhythms: Growing Groundedness & Grit Special Event
with Jess Turner, Laura Ruocco
240.00 minutes
$40.00
$40 - $100 Sliding scale, no one turned away for lack of funds, $20 deposit to save your spot. Being resilient looks a lot of different ways & harm-reduction strategies are where it’s at! That also goes for anything that helps us connect to ourselves & the world at large when our nervous systems may be telling us that keeping busy, overworking, or avoidance & hiding are the only ways out. We believe the only way out is through: through listening, through attuning, and through showing up for the brave and continuous work of collective liberation and healing. Living in harmony with the seasons helps heal disconnection from our natural world and is a wonderful form of deep listening. It offers a pathway to the practice of being in our world as awake and actualized beings capable of staying present for the resistance that’s needed! Building off of lessons on the rhythms & energetics of each season, together we will make our own seasonal medicines and explore foods, herbs, movements, breathwork, heart-work, and practical coping strategies to align with the seasons so we can show up: for ourselves, our loved ones, our commitments, our values, and our movements.
