My name is Nicole Bengtson, founder of Root Down Power Yoga. I’ve been practicing Baptiste Power Yoga for the last six years in and around the Hartford area.

During that time, I struggled finding the community that was right for me. Baptiste Affiliate and Inspired studios were either too far away for a daily practice or not the Yoga I was looking for.

After attending several teacher trainings, I knew I had to create my own community that gave people a place to feel seen, connected and challenged by the practice of Baptiste Power Yoga.

Baptiste Power Yoga is a transformative journey of Asana (our physical practice), meditation and self-inquiry. The sequence of Journey Into Power is a dynamic series of poses that strategically reconnects you to your own vitality and power.

We practice in a heated environment that is approximately 90-95°; Root Down Power Yoga uses a Infrared Heating system. The added heat sends more blood flow to the muscles, allowing you to safely go deeper into postures. It is important to remember however to know your own body and do only what is safe.

This practice can be modified for everybody, no matter what your level of experience is. Each class is designed so that beginner and expert can find their authentic flow. All that is required is that you show up, as is, Perfectly Imperfect.

We are a Baptiste Yoga affiliate prepared to lead our community through this transformative practice. We are so happy you chose to Root Down with us, welcome home.
