Hi, my name is Jennie, owner & founder of Rooted Yoga & Wellness. We opened our physical doors as a 501(c)(3) Non Profit Wellness center in February of 2020. Rooted in service & recovery, we provide classes, workshops and private sessions geared towards healing from trauma, addiction and abuse. We utilize meditation, breath work and yoga as a modality to become present and aware of now, in order to forgive the past and compassionately move forward. We have trauma certified instructors, abuse & addiction counselors, drug & alcohol recovery certified instructors , and, we each live a lifestyle in direct alignment with our offerings. Everything we do is donation based. Some come to us with nothing, and we never close the door.
I personally work with many survivors of abuse and assault for free, Because their healing is worth more than any dollar. But, we still have commitments to others. Rent, utilities, instructors. As a non profit we rely heavily on our community to help us continue to serve. So far in 2023 we were able to provide 67 pounds of non-perishable food, 100+ bags of toiletries and over a dozen carloads of clothing to local families in need. We donated $1850 to local non profits, we have offered services to 4 sober houses, dozens of women who are in the process of leaving DV situations and even been a resource for survivors of sexual assault within hours of reporting the crime. Since August 2022, 59 womxn have been referred to us from local Domestic Violence programs and each have been offered free one on one yoga, meditation and coaching to begin their healing journey and many have integrated into the Rooted family. Lives lifted, hearts changed. Your donated dollars allow us to keep doing this.
My story of addiction & trauma is deep. From sexual assault & domestic violence, medical trauma and battles with alcohol and drugs, it wasn’t until I Rooted myself in the work of service & recovery that I truly found healing, and that is why this work is SO important.
We are not like other studios. We do not touch, we do not have vigorous and packed classes, we do not post you on social media….and that is because we don’t just talk about being trauma aware, we live and breath the trauma informed offerings. It’s not for everyone, but it’s what we are committed to.
Because we offer everything on a donation basis, we are seeking help to continue these offerings, to keep the brick and mortar and to continue creating and cultivating programs to be brought into broader communities. Any support is greatly appreciated, and, tax deductible.
Please check us out on rootedyogaandwellness.com or IG or FB. If you, or anyone you know could use our services please reach out directly. I also do workshops and trainings on trauma. Medical facilities, schools, police and more…..if you’re interested in having your team learn about how trauma in the people you deal with affects your interactions please reach out! Id love to offer you a workshop and partner on creating a trauma aware environment for you. If you are a local sober living house, recovery center or any other NPO looking to partner up, again, please reach out directly.
