Our Mission

     The mission of Sunflower Kids Yoga is to share the love of yoga with children in familiar environments. Children learn through play and Sunflower Kids Yoga classes teach yoga, breathing and mindfulness in a fun, child friendly and playful manner.  I believe that by learning self regulation, relaxation and stress reduction techniques in settings where they are comfortable, children will be able to access those skills more readily when the need arises.

     Sunflower Kids Yoga brings the yoga to your children, wherever they are. Some children may not feel comfortable in a group class, but could benefit immensely from a yoga and mindfulness practice.  I offer a variety of options to suit your needs: private classes in your home or a neutral environment, weekly group classes in a studio and pop up workshops with a specific focus. I work with you to find the best option for your child to help them find a safe space within their bodies through yoga! 


A Little About Me

     My name is Christine Gallo, and I am a very happy mom of two boys, Ever and Jasper, who have been yoga-ing with me since before they were born!  I am a certified elementary school teacher with 15+ years of classroom teaching experience and a Masters Degree in Literacy. Yoga has been an integral part of my life for over 20 years when I first discovered it as a Peace Corps volunteer. I have used yoga, relaxation and mindfulness in and outside of my classroom and have seen first hand the difference that it makes when a child has tools at their ready to help them manage their emotions. I am certified in Kidding Around Yoga, have trained in Radiant Child and Itsy Bitsy yoga, and am a Trauma Informed Yoga Educator. In addition to my yoga training, I have an extensive background and experience using a variety of Social Emotional and Mindfulness programs, including MindUp. I'm so happy to be able to share the peace and joy a yoga practice brings with children, families and the people who care for them!!  I hope to share it with the children you love, too!

Helping Children Grow In Places That They Know

Sunflower Kids Yoga


     Currently you can find Sunflower Kids Yoga almost every morning at a variety of private pre-schools in both MA and RI, including The Children's Workshop, Briarwood Academy and the Westboro Learning Center. Drawing on my experience in Elementary Education, I love finding ways to incorporate whatever theme the class is working on into my yoga and mindfulness lessons. This summer I am honored to be one of the performers across the Ocean State for the "Universe of Stories" summer reading program!  Check with your daycare provider, pre-school or local library to see if they are interested in seeing if Sunflower Kids Yoga is a good fit for their facility!
