FAQs

Q: Am I too old/out of shape for this series? Alternatively, am I too young/experienced at yoga to learn more?

A: No! This series is perfect for everyone, and we will all support you wherever you are in your life journey and yoga journey. The whole group will develop better connection and understanding of yoga as we learn how to adapt the poses for everyone.

Q: If I already have a membership, can I still sign up?

A: Absolutely! This is a wonderful enhancement to your existing practice. You can register for Roots and Wings now and we will happily put a hold on your existing membership during the six weeks of the series.

Q: What if I miss a session?

A: You’ll still be able to follow along with the post-class notes. While we don’t offer make-ups, the series is such a good deal that you’ll get tons of value even if you must miss a session or two.

Summer Solstice Workshop: Kundalini Yoga & Sound Healing
Jun 22, 2024 - Jun 22, 2024

Let the Light In

Summer Solstice marks the longest day of the year in the Northern hemisphere, and a powerful point in time to celebrate and reflect. The abundant light present provides the opportunity for us to clearly see how our past experiences have created the beauty of who we are today. Summer Solstice is a potent time to reflect on the first half of the year, and set intentions (or recommit to existing ones) for the next 6 months.

Join Amanda for a special workshop to honor the light inside us, and our unique journey around the sun. We'll practice yoga, mindfulness, meditation, and experience sound healing together. You’ll emerge radiant and refreshed in mind, body and spirit.

Yoga Summer Camp
Aug 2, 2024 - Aug 6, 2024

Join us for our one-of-a-kind Yoga Summer Camp, an in-studio retreat for grownups aged 16 to 99! This is for you if you:

+ Fondly remember the joy of shared experience at summer camp
+ Are eager to know more about yoga practices beyond the poses
+ Would love a retreat but can’t swing the time away
+ Want to treat yourself to the ultimate staycation
+ Have been intrigued by the fun and immersive parts of yoga teacher training without being sure you want to teach
+ Are looking for a deeply meaningful experience to enjoy together with a family member or friend
+ Dearly love your family and friends but want some YOU time with like-minded people so you can go home refreshed each day
+ Like to move but don’t need to win at yoga
+ Enjoy luxuriating in final relaxation at the end of practice and wish you could extend that period
+ Want to develop personally meaningful rituals to enhance your self-care

Over the course of five special days, you’ll deepen your practice, make friends, find joy, and learn lots about yoga, its related practices, and yourself. We will explore various forms of meditation, get to know our Ayurvedic doshas, learn about mantras, yantras, and malas, and laugh a LOT.

Your camp counselors are Alexandra DeSiato and Alexis Besosa. Together, they will guide you in doable, active asana practices; activities designed to teach you more about the practice and yourself; meditations; art creation; and play.

Expect a schedule like this as we meet at Carrboro Yoga Friday, August 2, through Monday, August 5 (our spa day is Tuesday, August 6):

9–9:30: opening circle, intention setting, meditation
9:30–11:30: doable yoga practice for all levels, with time for questions, answers, and exploration
11:30–1:00: locally catered lunch and restful siesta
1:00–2:00: art activity
2:00–3:15: gentle, yin, and restorative yoga, plus yoga nidra
3:15–4:00: meditation, journaling, closing circle

Before we meet and every day of camp, you’ll get prompts for reflection, reading, and yoga-related viewing, so you can extend your experience into the evening. Or go grab dinner with your new camp friends!

Camp culminates on Tuesday, August 6, in a final-day field trip to Hillsborough Spa and Day Retreat, where we will have the space all to ourselves for lounging, reflection, journaling, enjoying the amenities, and, if you choose, an optional add-on treatment at a steeply discounted rate.

Lunch is included; we’ll reach out closer to the start of camp to check in on your dietary needs.

If you are a yoga teacher who tracks Yoga Alliance CEUs, you'll get 35 for this camp!

Because the cohesion of the group is integral to the experience, there will be no single-day drop-ins, and we won’t prorate if you need to miss a day. We have a six-person minimum and will max out at 15 students, so sign up TODAY to ensure your spot!

Reflections:  A Yoga Group for Grief & Loss
Sep 15, 2024 - Dec 8, 2024

Practicing yoga can be a powerful way to help yourself heal after loss. Whether your loss is the death of a loved one, the end of a significant relationship, or surviving a major health crisis or traumatic event, the grief process is often slow and meandering. Yoga can help to comfort you in times of sadness and grief, to feel connection or closure with who or what is lost, and to open your heart and be in the present.

This ongoing workshop helps students develop a toolkit for resilient grieving, including yoga and movement, breathwork, meditation and reflection, journaling, and the company of others experiencing loss. Join Joe-Paul and this yoga group of students addressing grief, adjusting to a new world after loss, and focusing on renewal and investment in health and relationships.

Kundalini Yoga and Sound Healing Workshop
Nov 2, 2024 - Nov 2, 2024

Join Amanda for a special workshop that celebrates the transition from winter to the first signs of spring. This is an optimal time to bring mindfulness to our journey around the sun and honor the forthcoming new energy. As we reflect on where we are in this moment, we gain clarity on what we are creating in our own lives, as the days grow longer and brighter with light.

The practice of Kundalini yoga uniquely prepares you to maximize the nourishing effects of the gong. Sound healing with the gong is a deep, meditative experience that takes you on a journey within your innermost spaces. You will emerge feeling peaceful, connected to your heart, and awakened.
