The benefits of yoga for Tweens & Teens
are many, and include:

Improved focus and attention
Relief from anxiety and stress
Increased mind/body awareness
Increased flexibility and lung capacity
Improved co-ordination and balance
Improved body image and self esteem

Yoga is beneficial for all of the systems of the body, but particularly the nervous and endocrine systems, both of which are in transition during the teenage years. The nervous system of today’s teens are particularly stressed as they are constantly "on," with all the electronic multitasking and screen time. Paying attention to balancing these delicate systems is especially important for today’s teens. Yoga is an effective and fun way to do just that.  No prior experience is required.

Please note: We do not offer make-ups for missed Tween and Teen Yoga Classes, however, mature tweens and teens are welcome to take a make-up in any of our adult classes. We also offer a Free Trial Class at the start of Spring & Fall sessions, which can be used as a make-up.  



Carmen Chicola has been practicing yoga since retiring from a dance career in 2000. As an active mother of three, she knows how important it is to take time out of our busy schedule to nurture, rebuild and restore our innermost dreams. Her vinyasa flow and energetic class intertwines movement with self affirmations designed to inspire and re-energize true intentions.

She has a 300 hour teacher training certificate from The Yoga and Healing Center. She currently teaches several open flow classes, as well as, a Hot Yoga Sculpt, family and children’s classes, and private one on one sessions upon requests.

Her background as a dancer gives her an edge in recognizing proper joint alignment and maintaining a balance between strength and flexibility She incorporates poses in order to increase joint stability, as well as, range of motion to improve speed and skill.

Carmen has been teaching for over 30 years and her creative approach to movement allows her to connect to all ages. Children and adults alike, leave her class feeling healthier in their body and mind.

Kathleen Good was introduced to yoga as a child and rediscovered it 13 years ago after a serious challenge to her health.  In 2008 she gave up the legal world to dedicate herself to the study and practice of Kundalini Yoga.

Kathleen trained and received her certification from Kundalini Yoga East in New York City in 2010.  She is also certified in Child Play Yoga and Grounded Kids Yoga. She is committed to sharing the gift of yoga to maintain physical health and peace of mind.  

 “Kundalini Yoga is uncoiling yourself to find your potential and your vitality and to reach for your virtues. There is nothing from outside. Try to understand that. All is in you. You are the storehouse of your totality.” ~ Yogi Bhajan
