Teen Yoga Classes
Aside from the physical benefits of yoga, yoga teaches teens techniques for coping with the unique issues they’re faced with everyday—insecurity about their changing bodies, the enormous pressure to fit in, stressful schedules, and uncertainty about their beliefs and their futures.
Teenage yoga is an excellent way to help your child deal with the overwhelming emotional and physical changes that she goes through during adolescence. Teenagers who practice yoga are less stressed and perform better than their counterparts in academics
We are really excited to announce our Teen Yoga classes will be starting from April in our new Heswall Studio.
“Yoga is like music. The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul creates the symphony of life.” B.K.S. Iyengar
If your teenager is looking for a way to stay fit and healthy, yoga is a great choice. It can help your teenager develop a healthy body and mind in a disciplined manner. Teenagers can find yoga practice a little daunting in the beginning, as they fear that they aren’t flexible enough to do yoga. This is a myth!! You don’t need a flexible body to start practicing yoga. Yoga makes your body flexible. Yoga is for everyone.
It has been proven time and again that yoga helps reduce stress, rejuvenate their senses through relaxation, and enable smooth transition into adulthood. Following are the physical and the psychological benefits of yoga for teens.
Stress can lead to overeating, which in turn leads to weight gain. Teenagers can also gain weight due to hormonal changes. The practice of yoga can prevent weight gain in both these cases. Yoga can be an effetive way to manage your child’s weight or improve their body image. Teenagers often have a poor body image and are ever trying to change their appearance to fit in. Yoga promotes self-awareness and acceptance, which helps teenagers overcome their poor self-image.
Yoga may seem like a passive activity, but it is not. Yoga engages you physically, and in a safe manner when practiced right. What many people do not know is that there are many yoga poses that can help you build bone and muscle strength.
It may even improve their concentration. The breathing exercises in yoga improve concentration. Yoga teaches kids how to use their breath to stay focused on the task at hand.
These are just some of the many physical and emotional benefits that kids can get by practicing yoga, As they grow into healthy adults, teenagers who practice yoga will also be able to enjoy the spiritual benefits that yoga offers.
