Classes focus on a fun mixture of yoga postures, breathing and meditation with storytelling, sound therapy, games, partner yoga, mandala colouring-in and movement to music.
There are numerous physical and mental health benefits from regular yoga practice. Regular yoga practice also helps young people to improve their balance, co-ordination, focus, concentration, spacial and social awareness.
Yoga also helps kids to develop body awareness and how how to use their bodies in a healthy way. It teaches how to manage stress through breathing, awareness, meditation techniques and movement which is natural and nourishing.
Teens and younger children alike can increase their confidence and positive self-image while also feeling part of a non-competitive all inclusive group.
5 Week Teen Yoga Courses
in partnership with EKIZ Lechtal in Elbigenalp
Becoming a teenager is one of the most transforming physical and emotional phases in a person's life. In Teen Yoga, we learn how to use yoga activities to understand the importance of healthy eating and exercise, maintaining regular sleep patterns, and maintaining a happy mind.
Exploring the body and mind through yoga postures, sequences and meditation techniques can alleviate the stress of dealing with the daily challenge of hormonal changes as well as the life changes and situations that young people face.
The Teen Hatha Yoga classes include:
- Asanas (postures)
- Pranayama (breathing exercises)
- Mudras (hand and finger positions that stimulate the Nadi system)
- Meditation techniques such as relaxation, body rotation and visualisation
- Music & mindfulness games
We also work with gratitude and power-speaking exercises, and we learn to
listen better and how to better work and cooperate with others.
