Teenagers, not unlike all people, need to ease the everyday stresses and pressures of their lives. Come and find out why yoga is such a great activity to be soothing away stress.
Practicing Yoga at an early age helps promote self confidence, a positive self-image and wellness in a non-competitive environment. It will help improve your child’s strength, flexibility, and coordination. Your child will learn cooperation, compassion, and techniques for self-care, such as meditation to calm and focus their mind.
