The Root is Sacramento’s premiere education, yoga and perinatal wellness studio designed to support families on their paths as they grow through pregnancy, postpartum and new parenthood.
Why “The Root?”
The inspiration for “The Root” is two fold. Shortly after I bought the business, I was attending a workshop on the Chakra system, or the subtle energetic bodies often described in yoga, meditation and Ayurvedic practices. I had been searching my mind for a name that would feel inclusive of all types of families, where a community could be built around perinatal wellness and where all parents would feel safe and seen. The Root Chakra is located at the base of your spine and is formed during birth and infancy. It has everything to do with the feelings of safety and security, grounding, trust and letting go of fear. I could think of nothing more perfect for a studio with a mission to support building the foundations for new families, through education support and inclusivity…. and so The Root was born. In addition, you will notice in the smaller room of the studio there is a beautiful stained glass picture in the ceiling of actual plant roots. When I realized this, it was the final sign that this is what the studio was destined to be called.
