Teen's Yoga, Meditation & Mindfulness
with Dani Sands
Term 2 Starts: Tuesday 1 May 2018
Regular yoga, meditation and mindfulness practice is proven to help teenagers manage stress, improve focus, increase resilience and enhance self-esteem - and it's fun to learn!
Join our effective, supportive Teen's Yoga, Meditation & Mindfulness term classes for girls and guys aged 12-17 years.
Over-stimulation is the reality of today's technology-driven world for teenagers and they often don't know how to 'switch-off' or be themselves. Getting 'out of the head' and 'into the body' is the key to mindfulness and a happier, healthier, more at ease teenager.
Mindfulness is both a practice and a way of looking at life. It's about being able to slow down, to centre attention at will and to be okay with things 'just as they are'.
We teach simple and effective yoga postures to stengthen, tone and relax the body; breath work to calm the nervous system; meditation to centre the attention and different mindfulness skills and activities to practice in everyday life.
Our non-competitive approach inspires and encourages teenagers to feel naturally good about their body, mind and emotions and teaches them to develop healthy lifestyle habits as they grow and mature.
With regular practice, research shows that yoga, meditation and mindfulness helps to improve the physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing of teenagers in a range of ways:
- Improves focus and a relaxed concentration;
- Balances emotional reactivity;
- Develops creativity, thinking and problem-solving skills;
- Improves posture;
- Develops physical strength, flexibility, coordination and balance;
- Reduces anxiety and enhances ability to cope with stress;
- Develops discipline and an interest in having a healthy lifestyle;
- Builds a healthy self-esteem;
- Encourages appreciation and acceptance of the body/mind and any limitations.
Each week we cover a set, structured program with clear learning objectives and take-home activities and practices, to optimise students' learning. We also invite a parent to attend each student's first class - this enables the parent to get an understanding of mindfulness and builds a shared approach at home.
What Our Students Say
"Yoga is an experience that is really beneficial and worth going to. I learned mostly to stay positive, to keep calm and not judge myself. The teacher really und erstands what you're going through and gives lots of options so we can stop if we need to." Georgie King
"Your yoga and mindfulness is great - inclusive, fun and engaging. The stretching really helped me." Kale Griffiths
"The most important thing I learned in your Teen's Yoga, Meditation and Mindfulness was how to relax, and as weird as that sounds, after my first class I felt more relaxed than stressed about doing my homework for the night. I also really liked the teacher, the other people in the class and made new friends. Thanks!" Estelle
