Why study with Roots to Wings Yoga School?

Quality of Education

You will receive organized curriculum and a 275-page manual that dives into fundamental aspects of yoga such as anatomy, alignment, philosophy, the business of yoga, methods of teaching, and so much more! Your education is structured into two powerful modules that intelligently progress, keeping your mind engaged and your body balanced throughout our time together. This training is a culmination of decades of study and practice, providing you with a thoughtful and inspiring program. Our aim is that you receive the most out of your experience!

Learning Environment

Students often times get lost in a sea of 30, 50, or upwards of 100 other participants within a single yoga training. It is our standard that we work with smaller groups to give you more individual attention. We are fully present to support you throughout this program, as well as provide mentorship after the training ends. You will receive a powerful education in an atmosphere that is light-hearted and fun. Be prepared to play, have fits of laughter, and learn far more about yoga and yourself than you ever expected!

Garin Ammerman

My biggest takeaway? That is hard…. It was life changing. It helped me to deal with things I’ve always kind of walked away or ran away from. It is hard to put into words, but that’s the most profound thing. It helped unlock some healing and insight into who I am and what I have to offer. You are going to be challenged, but you’re also going to be held. You’re going to be taken care of. Michael and Tristina are very supportive, very insightful, and very kind. They make it look easy. Professionals make it look easy. That’s why I chose them.

School & Faculty

I have been a teacher and a trainer for over a decade. My passion is to study and teach the art and science of breath, movement, and stillness. I strive to create a space where students can experience themselves fully. I believe that yoga can help shift our consciousness to a place of true integration. It is my intention to share yoga with precision, creativity, and authenticity.

 

I thoroughly enjoy daily meditation, dynamic movement, and connecting with his community. You can spot me hanging out in my hometown of Sacramento California on my yoga mat or practicing martial arts.

MICHAEL FONG

Antonio and Patricia founded Lucia Yoga with three different yoga centers in Andalucia, Spain, with the desire to share their beautiful home region with yogis from all over the world.

 

They host and organize more than 30 yoga retreats per year, creating a network of yoga teachers to help each other to grow and share yoga and travel with others. The partnership with Roots to Wings Yoga was born when Tristina hosted a women's retreat with Lucia Yoga in 2017. The connection was immediate and it became clear that future collaborations would manifest, which brings us to this offering!

PATRICIA & ANTONIO

I left the corporate world behind in 2010 to share my love of yoga with others. I teach a dynamic and creative style of yoga that awakens strength through awareness in energetic alignment. My classes weave in the spiritual aspect of the practice through chanting, meditation, and insightful offerings on yogic philosophy.

 

I am deeply committed to my personal practice, which is the foundation of my teaching. I have studied various styles of yoga & meditation around the world with an array of respected teachers. I share my knowledge through classes, workshops, and teacher trainings. My deep passion for travel is brought to others through annual retreats in international destinations.
