Grassroots Yoga & Health

Project 2013-05-27 03:22:18 +1200

We are opening a brand new centre for YOGA at the cutting edge Tannery development in Woolston, Christchurch. 

Grassroots Yoga & Health will be a vibrant and innovative space for the practice of yoga at ALL levels (Beginners thru Advanced, Gentle & Therapeutic). Our centre will include a treatment room providing a range of supportive services and hands on body therapy. We will offer Christchurch's only 200hr Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training Program. 

We - Katie & Berin - are heading up the Grassroots Y&H team! 

Katie Lane is a well known yoga teacher in NZ and overseas. Katie teaches a contemporary style of hatha yoga that merges dynamic alignment (happy, healthy, skillful movement) into playful, progressive flow. Berin Turner is a NeuroMuscular Therapist, a passionate yogi, and an inspired teacher of anatomy & physiology. Together, we are excited to gather an amazing crew of teachers and practitioners to offer Christchurch the highest calibre yoga teaching and hands-on healing work. 

For the past seven years, our work has been truly "Grassroots" - community centered, word of mouth driven, and relatively mobile - especially in post earthquake Christchurch!

To plant down the permanent ROOTS for our greater vision, we need your help!      

Running a service based business is always a financial challenge. With this project, we are facing large scale, upfront, start up costs. Our funding goal of $12,000 only scratches the surface of our costs for this project but it's a really great start and will help us get our centre off the ground! 

The funds we raise here will help support: 

- the purchase of brand new high quality yoga equipment (mats, blankets, blocks, bolsters, etc.)

- our internal fitout (shelving, equipment storage, front desk, etc). Everything designed and crafted by a local Christchurch joiner/builder.

- the installation of a stunning eco hard wood floor for practice 

- the creation of a cozy hangout area for community convo before and after class. 

                                     Early days in the raw space. Dreaming a big vision!

We are committed to using environmentally friendly/sustainable products, and "buying LOCAL".   Our fundamental mission is to offer classes and events at a fair market rate while paying our instructors and staff a good living wage. In addition to our regular timetable, we will offer donation classes and work/study opportunities to help make our classes available to students from all walks of life. 

We LOVE what we do and we intend Grassroots Yoga & Health to be part of the much larger movement of Rebuild and Revival happening here in Christchurch. 

We would be honoured and grateful to have you join us!
