The benefits of yoga for Tweens & Teens
are many, and include:

Improved focus and attention
Relief from anxiety and stress
Increased mind/body awareness
Increased flexibility and lung capacity
Improved co-ordination and balance
Improved body image and self esteem

Yoga is beneficial for all of the systems of the body, but particularly the nervous and endocrine systems, both of which are in transition during the teenage years. The nervous system of today’s teens are particularly stressed as they are constantly "on," with all the electronic multitasking and screen time. Paying attention to balancing these delicate systems is especially important for today’s teens. Yoga is an effective and fun way to do just that.  No prior experience is required.

Please note: We do not offer make-ups for missed Tween and Teen Yoga Classes, however, mature tweens and teens are welcome to take a make-up in any of our adult classes. We also offer a Free Trial Class at the start of Spring & Fall sessions, which can be used as a make-up.
