Strong Roots Yoga was inspired by the Callery pear tree at ground zero. Its charred remains were discovered in the rubble after the 9/11 attacks. The burnt trunk and roots were nursed back to health and today it stands at the site and is thriving.


This tree represents strength, hope and perseverance, something I see each time I work with a survivor. They are an inspiration to me, as this pear tree is to our country.     ~ Sheila
