Yoga 4 Teens
Yoga 4 Teens
With so much pressure on the teenagers of today, it’s important that they take a moment to work on their physical and mental health. When we’re in school, we’re taught how to pass exams, but not necessarily how to deal with the stress and emotions that come hand in hand with growing up and living life. At a time in their lives when so many things are changing, it’s crucial that teenagers have a way to escape and focus on their own well-being, without comparing themselves to others or feeling like they have to achieve a certain standard.
Practising yoga is a perfect way for your teenager to learn to be mindful and calm, and allow them to live and feel in the moment!

Frequently asked questions
What should I wear to the yoga class?
It is best to wear loose fitting, comfortable clothes for the baby and yourself – nothing that restricts your movement or your breathing.
Yoga is practiced in bare feet.
You might like to bring socks and jumper/cardigan for extra warmth during the relaxation.
Do I need to have my own yoga mat?
If you have your own mat and you’d prefer to use it then you are welcome to do so. Proper yoga mats are much better than the general aerobic type that are liable to slip.
Mats are available to borrow and to buy at class.
For the relaxation you might find a small pillow useful.
Should I eat before coming to class?
Wherever possible please try not to eat a large meal for a few hours before you come to class – it is not terribly comfortable to have a full stomach while practicing.
Please bring water if you need it.
Do I need any previous yoga experience?
Yoga is not competitive!
It does not matter if you haven’t practiced before – everybody has his or her individual strengths and weaknesses to work with.
You will notice how your strength and flexibility increases after just a few sessions.
It is very important to listen to your body to only do what you feel you are capable of, and make sure to rest if you feel you need to.
