|Yoga for Teens|
Thursdays 4.30-5.30pm with Yolande
10 week course commencing 2nd May 2013
Yoga assists the growing mind to expand and explore, to remain calm and centred, to know right from wrong, sharpening the intuition and honing the senses.
Young adults today experience a fast paced world and a sense of calm is essential if they are to thrive and be well. As study commitments and the competitive nature of sports and education come down upon them, the skills to breathe deep, take it in, and go a little deeper within will be tools for life. Lessons for the now but skills for the future.
This FUN, ACTIVE course will focus on the all the physical conditions commonly experienced by teenagers these days: upper back tightness, lower back weakness, postural imbalances and breath control. The flow of the class will include shoulder releases, standing poses, inversions, twists and forward bends. The sessions will close in stillness and silence and you would be surprised to see how eagerly this quiet is received.
The teachings of Yoga help us to discover the wealth within. That riches outside ourselves have the illusion of contentment, are temporary pleasures and are the markers of the suffering and discontent that many teens endure. A well-rounded Yoga practice offers a place of refuge, where everyone is equal, regardless of social standing, body type or interests. It’s in the simple things like trying to sit still and silent for 3 minutes that balance is struck.
No screens, no batteries and not downloadable – the antidote to the modern era.
Open to all high school-aged students.
Investment: $120 for 10 weeks. Bookings are essential, call 9997 2121 or book online.
