SERIES Tween Yoga (Ages 8 – 11)

Tween Yoga (Ages 8 – 11)
Wednesdays @ 5 – 6pm w/ Christine Fox
4 or 5-week sessions with 1 “Bring a Friend For Free Date” which also serves as 1 allowed makeup date*. Only kids pre-registered for the entire series may attend the Bring a Friend For Free Date/makeup date.

This is a beginner series for tweens.  No prior experience is necessary.  During the series, students are encouraged to develop self-awareness through the inquiry of the yoga experience including breathing techniques, yoga postures and meditation.  By practicing in this way, yogis learn tools for self-care and self-regulation that can help with handling challenges in their daily lives.  We begin to explore yoga philosophy through discussion to give additional perspective to the practice.  Young yogis will be challenged with a more structured asana practice.  Games are included to help balance difficulties in cultivating concentration and calm.  If you have any questions about this group please reach out and we can help with the placement of your tween 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.

Christine Fox

Christine teaches Vinyasa Flow, Gentle, and Restorative Yoga classes.  She is known for her ability to craft intelligent and creative sequences inspired by her own practice and study of Yoga.  In Christine’s classes, you can expect specific instructions to create postures to bring more strength and flexibility to the body,and, you can expect to be guided to bring the body, mind, and spirit into the present moment.  Each student is offered a profound opportunity to practice skillfulness in action.  This mindfulness is the essence of the practice of Yoga.  Mindfulness cultivates the ability to notice habits and patterns, to listen to the feedback the body is giving (not the mind), and, based on this feedback, to make adjustments to support your practice in the present moment from a compassionate point of view.

Christine graduated from Regis College with a B.A. in Mathematics and from Lesley University with an M.S. in Business.  She is currently pursuing an M.Ed. in Special Education.  She completed her 500 hour training with Barbara Benagh at Down Under School of Yoga and her 200 hour training with KripaluCenter for Yoga and Health.

She is also a certified Kripalu Yoga in the Schools teacher and delivers a research-based curriculum to foster self-regulation skills to adolescents. In addition, she has a teaching certification from Creative Kids Yoga to help children trust their intuition and move with intention through a variety of activities that are woven into the learning of Yoga postures, breathing techniques, and creative movement.  She is passionate and joyful about bringing Yoga to kids and teens.

​Christine has been practicing Yoga since 2000. Her practice has evolved over the years and it was when she started a family that she embraced her Yoga practice more than ever. It was her way to stay present, have compassion for herself, and better understand the connection with body, mind, breath, and spirit. This enriched her connection to her loved ones. Practicing Yoga gives her strength to explore the edges of her comfort zone–to be curious about possibilities. Her respect and joy for Yoga have her wanting to share this ancient practice with others to explore, together, possibilities in living with mindfulness and heartfelt intention.
