Teen Yoga (11 - 14 years old)
Teen yoga is the perfect time of the week to find peace, recharge and be yourself!
The expectations are high for teenagers: tests, exams, a lot of studying… Wouldn’t it be nice to calm down your mind? Not to mention you are able to think more clearly and study for tests a lot better with a relaxed mind!
During the class, we do a lot of postures (asanas) that are meant to help tone your muscles, keep your joints supple and help support your posture.
Starting yoga at a young age also helps with focussing, so that your ability to concentrate develops and improves. It creates confidence and helps to develop and improve a positive self-image.
