Rootead is a 501(c)3 organization in Kalamazoo, MI. Their mission is: Birthing Justice & Body Awareness. They achieve this mission through offering movement classes, workshops, house concerts and resources in sustainability, social justice and living to Kalamazoo and its surrounding communities. Body awareness is vital in their vision at Rootead. When you know your body, you can start to focus on your mind. The body can serve a distraction of the soul’s work if it isn’t nourished. To accomplish this goal of replenishing the body, Rootead offers yoga, dance, nutrition and lifestyle education.
This video is a montage of what Rootead is all about and what they have to offer. Learn more about this amazing nonprofit organization at rootead.org.
