free summer yoga at Frog Pond

Summer Yoga at The Boston Common Frog Pond

Due to COVID-19, we are currently not holding any summer yoga classes.
Please stay tuned for further announcements on offerings in the future.

Joins us every Thursday at 6:00 pm near the Frog Pond Carousel for free summer yoga! Vibrant instructors will lead a vinyasa flow class for all levels, encouraging everyone to challenge themselves at their own pace. The classes focus on releasing stress and expanding energy, all while taping into nature at America’s oldest public park. Participants should come prepared with their own mats and plenty of water.


Genevieve Oba

genevieve oba yoga instructorAlthough Genevieve has been practicing yoga since childhood, she still feels the thrill of opportunity and fresh beginnings every time she steps on the mat. That perspective informs her teaching, making each class a blend of dynamic, playful, and challenging sequences that quiet the mind while re-energizing the body. She’s been certified and teaching in the Boston area since 2003 but once appeared in a 1980s instructional yoga video for kids — complete with a leotard and Princess Leia braids — that still makes her laugh to this day. Genevieve is a true yoga inspiration, gearing her classes toward everyone and everybody with the knowledge and passion to make every class truly memorable.

Christine Tresselt

Christine-TresseltChristine Tresselt’s joyful, inspirational approach is rooted in her deeply-held belief that yoga heals the body and mind. Her classes combine strength-building for physical fitness, which is inspired by Broga®, balanced with restorative poses and mindful meditation that calm and soothe the soul. In addition to completing her 200-hour teacher training, Christine’s devotion to yoga as a therapeutic art has inspired her to become a certified Reiki practitioner which deepens her teaching and personal yoga practice. Her classes are open to all skill-levels and she allows room to explore sensation and breath in the body through a varied asana practice.

Meet Christine on the mat at Borealis Yoga in Medford and Vital Core in Woburn and follow her on Facebook and Instagram to learn about her upcoming yoga classes for athletes.
