If I could give this place all the stars in the night sky I would. This place has been a retreat for my weary and hungry soul, and a reprieve from so many negative thoughts and emotions that I have been carrying for far too long.
I happened upon this place during the middle of an anxiety/panic/whatever attack because I liked the descriptions of the classes. I wasn’t looking for a supercharged yoga workout (though they provide that as well), I was looking for a space to recharge my heart and soul, and guidance to really start my practice. I really believe the universe heard my call, gave me an easy answer, and said “Here you go dear heart, now go do the work.”
Having struggled with addiction for years, I’m finally working towards becoming sober. The teachers gently guide you through poses, adjust your body where needed and take you to lots of different edges: mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, all of ’em! I’ve had a lot of breakthrough moments during practice and have cried more than a few times. They are tears of joy, tears of release, tears of gratitude, that I found this studio, that I have this body to do this work and that I am showing up.

If you’re looking for a yoga home, I could not recommend Grassroots enough. See you on the mat!
Grassroots is the most amazing hot yoga studio! Every class I take, regardless of who is teaching, offers a variety of poses and challenges. Every instructor adds their own uniqueness to their classes and I find myself looking forward to ALL of them!
I have attended yoga studios intermittently for years. I’ve long felt drawn to the practice, but like the Goldilocks of yoga, I never found a studio that felt quite right. Until now. Grassroots feels like home. And my impression is that it feels that way to a wildly diverse group of people, which is awe inspiring. The studio is beautiful, clean, and comfortable. But far more importantly, the instructors are brilliant, kind, and full of love and passion. I’ve attended Yinfusion, Prana Flow, 101 Flow, Sacred Sunday, and Rise & Vibe classes. They are distinct, but even as a beginner, I have felt welcome in each and have learned an amazing amount in just over a month. I am so excited to continue to establish a practice.
I love this space! Grassroots Yoga studio is so welcoming and inviting. Sarah really made it feel like hOMe and you can tell she left her heart all over the studio. Everyone gets greeted when they walk in the door which is important to me. If you’re going to see me 2-4 times a week, you should know my name and me know yours. The teachers are some of the best in Ventura and give you the freedom to challenge yourself with their support, or to back off when you just aren’t feeling it that day. There’s no judging, only encouraging. Love, love, love.
I love Grassroots! The staff are always smiling, helpful and friendly. I have been to several of their classes including 101 Flow, Prana Flow, Deep Flow and Power Flow. All the instructors are happy to have yogis of any stage in their class and are super helpful if you aren’t used to a sequence or pose. The place is always super clean which is an extra plus!
