Tweens Shine Om

As a teacher in Basking Ridge, NJ, Chris infuses mindfulness and yoga into her middle school classroom. Her love for working with students coupled with her passion for health and wellness has lead her on a journey to become a childrens yoga instructor. Chris has earned her Kids, ‘Tween, and Yoga for Special Needs Students 45-Hour certification with Bee You Yoga in Manasquan, NJ, and is beginning a 200-hour Yoga Teacher training this Fall. She is currently writing curriculum for an afterschool mindfulness program at her middle school funded by a grant from Somerset County Youth Services. She hopes to inspire her students to have fun with their practice and receive all the beautiful benefits yoga and mindfulness have to offer. Off the mat and out of her classroom, Chris makes her home in the friendly town of New Providence with her husband, Brian; their seven kids; and her extra large black lab, Duff.
