About Grassroots Yoga
We love yoga and we want you to love it too.
Our mission at Grassroots is to empower and guide people that want to find freedom in body, mind and energy.
We believe that everyone has the right to be free.
We believe that there are many different paths available in the journey to freedom.
We believe that each person’s journey should be autonomous with layers of support, education and guidance available.
We believe that the process of connection and organic evolution is paramount to finding personal & societal freedom.
We believe that in order to find connection one must be able to be aware, to activate and adapt.
Open since August 2013, which means we have been through a lot of life’s ups and downs together. We are a community with heart and want you to be a part of it. In both 2020 and 2022 we were Top 5 finalist in the Exercise NZ Awards for studio of the year, of which we are incredibly proud.
Our Yoga is taught with skilful alignment, awareness, intention and heart. Our teaching team is influenced by the beautiful tradition and teachings of Tantric philosophy, and informed by developments in functional movement. Yoga can help you feel empowered, inspired, connected and supported. We don’t label our yoga based on a guru, we will show you to find the guru within.
We believe yoga is for everyone, and our range of classes reflect the different practices available at different times of your life, and when your energy levels and capacity to practice fluctuate. Our team are all first aid certified and almost all of them have over 5 years teaching experience. We hold regular workshops and events with Grassroots Yoga teachers, so they can share their experience, knowledge, passion projects and in-depth teachings of yoga with you. We also love guest teachers and can’t wait for some of our favourite international friends to return one day soon.
Open 7 days, located in the Tannery, our studio is stunning with plenty of natural light, historic exposed beams and beautiful wooden floors. We have survived this pandemic thanks to the soul of our community which includes our teachers and students. We have the highest health and safety protocols as we move through Alert levels so you can feel safe, and your yoga can be a refuge for you. We think you will like it here and we can’t wait to meet you (we smile a lot at Grassroots).
