This non-traditional, invigorating, imaginative after-school yoga series will introduce your child to the joys of yoga. Our classes feature active yoga, yoga games and crafts, mindful moments, and plenty of laughter and fun in each session. We will challenge your child's imagination while developing strength, flexibility, coordination and balance. No two classes are alike as children learn and grow!
About the Instructor:
Kristen Lamarre is the instructor for yoga. She is known for her precise yet lighthearted approach to yoga. Coming from a background in biology and a love of anatomy, Kristen weaves structure and alignment with free movement and exploration. She encourages students to connect with their own bodies and create movement that honors these connections. She understands that all bodies are different, but believes that yoga can be done by everyone if we listen to ourselves. Yoga after all is a practice of connection.
Kristen completed her 200-hour multi-dimensional teacher training at Pavones Yoga Center in Pavones Costa Rica under her teacher Indira Kate Kalmbach. This past year she finished her 1000-hours teaching to become a yoga alliance certified E-RYT. Kristen’s fundamental desire for constant learning is evident in her practice and teaching. You will often find her in classes and workshops or with her nose in a yoga book!
When Kristen isn’t on her mat or driving from class to class listening to podcasts you will often find her outside nourishing herself by connecting to the natural world. Since a young age, Kristen has had a deep connection with the earth and she tries to spend as much time outside as possible. She loves to hike and paddle board with her rescued ‘supermutt’ Koby. Kristen also enjoys traveling anywhere and everywhere, creating delicious plant-based recipes and enjoying a cup of coffee.
Kristen’s joyful and sincere approach to life allows her to share yoga in an inclusive and nonjudgmental way; truly allowing the practice of yoga to bridge gaps. By sharing this practice that continually influences and grounds her, Kristen hopes to inspire others to find their yoga.
