• YOGA FOR TEENS

The teenage years are both an exciting and challenging time for many adolescents due to the many changes that are happening as their bodies and brains are rapidly developing. Yoga is the perfect activity to take them through these years of change with strength, compassion and enhanced self-esteem.Regardless of what’s going on in their external world, yoga can gift teenagers with the ability to draw on their internal strength, intuition and strong sense of self to help them holistically manage the challenges of everyday life.

Yoga for teens can be a wonderful experience for teens. It is lighthearted, fun and can be dynamic. They get the opportunity to relax deeply at the end of the class which has great benefits for teens particularly if they are anxious or stressed. Whats more they absolutely love the end bit! Yoga helps helps teens develop focus, become more centred, breath better, develop discipline, improve posture and cope with tensions. They will have fun and have the opportunity to meet others. This course can also be included as part of the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Teen Comments

“Teen Yoga is a fun healthy activity I love to do with my friends. Because the class is designed for teens only I find it more fun”

Teen yoga is a great way to de-stress and unwind – especially during busy and stressful times at school. The Friday evening class is particularly great to help you relax after a full-on week, in time for the weekend. I would definitely recommend teen yoga to anyone who needs to relax and clear their mind weekly.
