Rootead is a 501(c)3 organization in Kalamazoo, MI. Our mission is: Birthing Justice & Body Awareness. We 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 our 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. We especially focus on providing our service pregnant women (birthwork), youth, elderly, families. We strive to empower low income families of color, to make all of our offerings affordable and accessible to all. This work has to be done to heal our collective community.
