teen-brain_520

Ages 12-15

This class will provide a weekly injection of yoga asana, meditation and interactive mindful practices specifically designed for those straddling the curious chasm between childhood and full-fledged adult.

Being a teen means navigating through treacherous emotional territory, and these days the landscape is arguably more confusing than ever. The early teen years can be a stressful, anxiety-inducing, mood swinging stretch before the world makes some sense again.

This special class is specifically designed to address the challenges of contemporary teens. We’ll cover:

  • tools to reduce stress and anxiety
  • mindful self-regulation skills
  • non-violent communication strategies
  • tools for improving sleep
  • healthy ways to cope with school and social pressure

This is a practical, hands-on primer for teens interested in reducing the stresses of their day-to-day lives and creating connecting practices that promote self-awareness, self-acceptance and the magical effects of a relaxed nervous system.
