Pre-Teen w/ Experience Yoga
(Ages 11 – 14)
Thursdays @ 5 – 6pm w/ Laura Grundstrom
4 or 5-week sessions with 1 “Bring a Friend For Free Date” which also serves as 1 allowed makeup date.

This class is for the pre-teen student who has some yoga experience.  We will deepen our yoga knowledge as we explore yoga poses and meditation in a fun and engaging way.  Students will learn more about the philosophy of yoga such as exploring the yamas and Ni yamas in age appropriate ways.  As the sessions and year progresses we will also experience what a teen class would be like to help them with a smoother transition into the teen group when appropriate.  If you have any questions about this group please reach out and we can help with the placement of your pre-teen into a class that will engage and fulfill them.

We are very excited to offer updated age groups and class formats for our Young Yogis!
We have reorganized age groups, and we are now offering shorter series.  We are also thrilled to introduce one extra date at the end of each series that will be a “Bring A Friend For Free” class!  This extra class will also serve as a make-up date if your child misses a class* during a series.

IMPORTANT: Please note we have updated our policy for missed classes.
We have built in 1 designated make-up date for each series.  If your child misses a class, they are entitled to make up 1 class on that designated date at the end of the series they are registered for.  There will be no refunds, credits or additional make-up classes for any reason if your child misses more than 1 class per series.

Laura Grundstrom

Laura Grundstrom completed her 200 hour adult teacher training certification through Divine Play Yoga where she studied with Claire Este-McDonald and Gregor Singleton.  Laura is also grateful to Lorraine Shedoudi, Chanel Luck, and Elizabeth Goranson for all of their support and guidance.  Laura realized that her passion continues to be with teaching yoga to children of all ages.

Laura has taught children in many different capacities for the past fifteen years. She began working with Autistic children and then moved into a preschool setting.  Laura used her own personal practice to stay grounded and began to use some of that knowledge in the classroom.  She began her yearlong 300 hour children’s training in 2007 to become a certified YogaKids teacher and trainer as a way to better support her students in the classroom. It was the perfect way to merge her love for yoga and her passion for teaching kids.

Laura has had the privilege to train with Marsha Wenig the founder of the YogaKids program. The YogaKids philosophy is to educate the “whole” child by blending yoga with reading, music, body awareness and academic skills in a non-competitive environment.  Laura strives to incorporate all of these things into each of her classes.  Laura has also had the privilege of participating in Ring One of the Circus Yoga training with Erin Maile O’Keefe.  There she learned so many new things which bring fun, fresh energy into her classes.  Most recently Laura completed the Stretch What Matters, level 1 Training with Elizabeth Goranson.  This training took her back to the beginning of her teaching journey where she did private session for children with special needs and their siblings.  Yoga is a great, non-competitive, and non-threatening way for these children to connect.

Children have so much to teach us if we just take the time to stop and listen.  As a mother of two young girls, Laura works both on and off the mat to find balance, playfulness and of course the bravery to try new things.  She is looking forward to teaching your children and sharing with them her passion for yoga and fun!
