Girl Power Yoga

Each week your daughter will practice movement & poses, breathing techniques and relaxation. She will be part of a inclusive group that empowers girls to celebrate their inner beauty, commit to kindness, and contribute to the world. We end the class with a whole group arts and crafts project.

About Tracy Hartford

My teaching philosophy is founded in fostering a quality play based educational environment in a safe, nurturing atmosphere. I pride myself on extending my caring personality to both the children and the families I work with. My husband, two children and I have had the pleasure of living in West Newbury for the last 17 years. My background as an educator, with a Master’s degree in Child Development and 15 years teaching in both public and private preschool and public elementary school, has given me the experience to provide an educational environment for young children that is as unique as it is exciting. I feel a great sense of honor offering this community a quality learning environment.
