Teenage girls are experiencing more opportunities in the world than ever before, yet are often faced with great challenges socially, emotionally, and with family, academic, and extra-curricular commitments. Yoga for Girls is designed to promote and enhance flexibility, calm, and strength in both mind and body. In this co-created, safe space girls have the opportunity to explore traditional yoga postures, breathing techniques, mindfulness, meditation, partner work and group challenges. Through movement, games, breathing practices, and deep relaxation girls will enhance their self-confidence, focus, connection to others, and ability to find calm within themselves. Girls will learn how to call upon these personal strengths when stressful moments arise.

Hip Hop Cardio
Hip Hop Cardio is designed to get your blood flowing and your body moving in a fun and funky environment. Each class will start with a hip hop warm up to get our bodies moving and grooving. There will be short burst of conditioning in which we strengthen those hip hop abs and arms. We will also practice some across the floor exercises in which we explore how the body moves through space while also building confidence. If time permits we may also teach a short hip-hop dance to build upon the skills practiced in the beginning of class. We believe that everybody, every BODY, and anybody is a dancer and we are committed to building confidence in our students of all ages and abilities. No experience required!

Mental Skills with Kelsey
Kelsey received her Bachelor of Arts in dance from Muhlenberg College in 2011. After two years in New York City, she decided to pursue her master’s degree in sport and exercise psychology at Springfield College. While at Springfield, Kelsey worked with athletes, teams, and coaches at the NCAA Division III collegiate level. She has also worked with the Massachusetts Olympic Development elite soccer program and Broadway performers. Additionally, she completed a thesis examining the effects of training on the mood states of professional ballet dancers.
Kelsey currently serves as the Performance Enhancement & Rehabilitation Specialist at The Micheli Center for Sports Injury Prevention, an affiliate of Boston Children's Hospital--Division of Sports Medicine. Having danced all her life, Kelsey has a personal understanding of the demands placed on athletes -- mentally, physically and emotionally. Her goal is to help athletes of all ages learn to navigate the maze of challenges associated with sport [confidence, motivation, self talk, goal setting, anxiety/arousal control] to better reach self-determined goals and perform optimally both on and off the field, court, ice and stage.
Yoga with Joana
Joana is a pediatrician and Sports Medicine specialist at Boston Children's Hospital. She loves the outdoors and anything that involves being active! A former gymnast, dancer and runner she has dealt with injuries over the years herself as a result of overuse, weakness and poor technique. She is passionate about injury prevention and helping young athletes find the strength and stability in themselves that is so often lacking in "traditional" workouts, so that they can avoid injuries now and in future. In addition, she believes yoga can help to create and foster the mental toughness needed not just for high level sports, but also the stresses of day to day life. After receiving her yoga 200-hr teaching certification in 2016, she has brought this knowledge in to her clinical practice and is directing her research towards the field of yoga for athletes. Her classes will focus on strength, stabilization and body awareness and encourage focus and resilience, all set to a fun playlist of music!
