Yoga Teacher Profile: Rae Broderick

Rae Broderick is a Stråla Yoga Guide. She is the owner and founder of Root. Woodstock Yoga + Wellness in Woodstock, the only studio in the Hudson Valley to offer Stråla Yoga classes.

Rae’s yoga journey began fifteen years ago with Rodney Yee VHS tapes and a used mat. She has since completed over 500 hours of training with Strala Yoga and has led upwards of one thousand people at Yoga Journal’s Yoga in the Park series in Bryant Park in New York City among various other workshops and classes throughout the United States and Ireland..

Rae’s classes leave you feeling refreshed, calm and energized. Her clear and encouraging guidance makes people feel safe and supported. She always is interested in the people around her and makes everyone feel welcome and at home. She continues her exploration and growth as a yoga guide through daily practice and the nurturing and supportive community she lovingly creates at her studio.

Though her teaching style moves away from pose-based yoga, her favorite shape to make is Tree. Creating a strong foundation in body, mind and heart allows her to remain rooted and strong in how she feels yet moveable enough to sway with the breeze of whatever the universe throws her way. This idea exists at the heart of Root. Woodstock and provides a safe and supportive space for individuals to deepen their own roots while exploring and rising toward their dreams.
