Teens can feel pressed and stressed. Teen Yoga gives them a break -- a place to breathe, relax & learn new skills that can be used for school, sports, performing arts and life!
In this class, students learn classic yoga warm-ups and postures to become stronger & more flexible. They’re introduced to breathing, relaxation & meditation techniques that focus their mind and boost energy. Improved mental clarity leads to a greater sense of well-being, as well as study skills.
