Does your tween/teen have difficulty sleeping? Are they filled with worry about things they can't control? Are they always thinking about what's next instead of focusing on the present? Teaching young adults how to be mindful (the act of focusing on the present), has been scientifically proven to have positive effects on health and well-being. In this class, tweens/teens will learn how to be mindful as well as how to utilize yoga poses to assist with focus, relaxation, confidence, self-esteem, and an overall feeling of well-being. The skills learned will be beneficial at home, in the classroom, on the field, in a studio, or wherever needed!
