In this class, your teen/tween will build confidence, self esteem, strength, flexibility, balance, and positive coping skills as they develop a deeper understanding of their bodies, minds and hearts. With a playful and lighthearted approach, we will work towards more physically demanding postures and flowing sequences to keep tweens/teens interested and challenged. Fostering connection, community with class peers, and self-respect, we will also begin using relaxing visualization, meditation, and breathing exercises to create a well-rounded experience of “union”.
This class is perfect for all levels. The student who is looking to manage stress, the athlete looking to build strength and flexibility, the adolescent who is struggling to find an activity, and the well-rounded child…because we can all use a little mind-body connection in this busy world! Sunday evenings are great time to reset, and your teens will find it easier to fall asleep.
Parents, you can find a little calm with your teens by taking Yin Yoga in the sun studio with Hilary Richard while your kids are in class. Our new student special allows new visitors to the studio to try an unlimited month of yoga for $49.
