Yoga Roots and Shelburne’s Recreation Department raised more than $1,000 for the Shelburne Food Shelf with a summertime Beach Yoga class. With the cooperation of beautiful weather and many community members, the effort was a success, co-owner of Yoga Roots Katie Bohlin said.

“At our last beach yoga class on August 23rd, over 50 people contributed to the energy of celebrating the beauty of yoga outdoors along with supporting our local food shelf,” Bohlin said. “We are so lucky to live and work in this community. In that class alone, we raised over $350 in donations.”

Established in February 2013 in the new Shelburne Green Business Park, Yoga Roots strives to provide community experiences that promote healing on all levels with a daily schedule of yoga classes for all ages and abilities. They aim to clarify the mind, strengthen the body, and ignite a joyful spirit through classes such as Anusura-inspired, Restorative, Heated Vinyasa Flow, Gentle, and Energy Medicine Yoga.

New to the schedule this fall is an early morning and later evening classes, Nia, Men’s, Teen, and Prenatal yoga. Also new is a series of Sacred Sound Healing, Kundalini, and Absolute Beginners.

Yoga Root’s Open House will be held from 7am to 7:30pm Sept. 15. Free classes will be held all day with demonstrations and celebration.
