Teen Yoga for Girls (Fri 3:00 - 4:15 p.m.)


This class is taught by:

Joanna Rosenberg

From the first day Joanna stepped onto a mat in 2007, she realized she had finally come home. During a time when she was seeking healing--physical, emotional, spiritual-- Joanna found yoga to be a sacred and illuminating container for growth. Her mat became the mirror she used to relearn how to take ownership and care of her body and soul. Learning to teach through The New School of Yogic Arts remains one of the best, most fulfilling decisions she's ever made.

 

Joanna delights in the way yoga can be both a playground and a soft embrace, a tool to navigate spending time on this earth. When not in a studio, Joanna can be found seeking the next adventure- biking around Boston, trekking to the sea, reading, rock climbing, and traveling. In her heart she holds the warmest gratitude and love for her teachers, who continually guide her toward a path in which yoga is a living tradition both on and off the mat.

Elizabeth Heller

Elizabeth Heller was regularly practicing Tae Kwo Do alongside her five-year-old son when she took her first yoga class as a favor to another mom. Hooked, she continued to practice yoga at home as a form of centering, which transformed her martial arts practice. After an ACL tear, yoga became a source of both physical and emotional healing for Elizabeth. It was then that she fell in love with its transformative power: her life, spirit, and body had never felt more peaceful, vibrant, and energized. Elizabeth a member of the Coolidge Corner Yoga Kids staff. She has completed a 200-hour teacher training with the New School of Yogic Arts and profound teachers Laura Ahrens and Andrew Tanner. She has also completed a children’s yoga teacher training with her generous, inspiring teacher, Dawn Keighley, through Kidasana Kids Yoga Teacher Training, and is a certified prenatal yoga teacher through Om Births with Bec Conant. Additionally, Elizabeth is the author/co-author of eight books for and about children, and a contributing author of two parenting books. She has a BA in English and an MS in Broadcast Journalism, created a children’s sports and news program, and was a money reporter for a Boston children’s radio program. She completed eight years of Tae Kwon Do training and earned her second-degree black belt.

Dana Einhorn

Dana started practicing yoga in 2007 at what is now Coolidge Yoga, South End. At first, she looked at yoga as another workout class but as her physical asana practice grew deeper she began to realize how much more yoga had to offer and how it balanced other aspects of her life including a fast paced career in finance and a love of long distance running.

 

After moving abroad in 2008 she realized that yoga provided a home away not only as a grounding practice but also as a way to join a community and her practice deepened further. In May of 2017, after a decade in finance, Dana left the industry to complete her Associates Degree in Culinary Arts and upon her return completed her 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Certification with The New School of Yogic Arts.

 

Dana has completed 3 marathons; Boston, London and New York, and countless other long distance road races. She continues to find new, innovative ways to combine and compliment her love of running and weightlifting with her practice of yoga asana, breathing and meditation.

Teen Yoga for Girls (ages 11-16) This tween/teen program for girls will promote inner and outer strength, through flowing sequences, restorative yoga postures and deep relaxation, in a safe, be yourself, no judgment environment. This is the population that needs yoga the most, as entering the teen years brings many transitions (some tumultuous!), both physically and emotionally. Yoga can help teens find the necessary tools to deal with their emotions, stress, body image and peer pressure, setting them up for success in all aspects of their lives.
