The gift of yoga is one that we can share with our children. This ancient practice provides a system of breath, movement and mindfulness that is a counterbalance to the stresses of modern life. Today's teens have to navigate the path to a balanced life amidst the pressures of school, sports and a complex social life fueled by modern technology. Yoga offers many ways to help them.
Giving young people knowledge of the many aspects of yoga provides them with tools to keep themselves healthy, both physically and emotionally. By encouraging the teens in your life to try yoga, you are giving them the gift of:
- A thoughtful pause
- A way to reconnect to breath and self
- A time-out from competition and judgment
- A way to rest and restore
The holidays are a busy, exciting and yet stressful time of the year for all of us. Encourage your teen to take a yoga class. You will be giving them a gift that will last long after the celebrations are over.
Teen Yoga classes begin Friday, December 6th from 5-6 pm. See www.balancestudiocohasset.com for details.
