Calling all tweens and teens 11-17.
This is your first time through a pandemic and life is confusing. School was taken away, you can’t see your friends, and normalcy as you know it, has halted. This group will provide you with one hour of movement and breath to help deal with these confusing times.
Whether your teen is interested in gaining more skills for overall wellness, managing big feelings better, or just learning more about yoga, this group is for them! It is more important than ever to set aside intentional time to connect and care for themselves! These are skills that will follow your tween/teen for the rest of their lives.
Each group will consist of a movement practice, breathing exercises, and a guided visualization. Yoga for teens is different because it consists of smaller sequences built into one hour of movement. This is designed to keep your teen’s attention and focus!
In 4 weeks, your tween/teen will learn:
Who: This is a group for middle and high school students ages 11-17.
What: Yoga! One hour of Yoga! This includes movement, breathing, and guided visualizations.
Where: Online via Zoom! I will send out a link prior to each session
When: Wednesday mornings from 10-11am. The group will go from April 15th- May 6th.
Why: Times are confusing and we could all benefit from taking a breather.
To RSVP for your tween/teen, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 616-929-0248
I can’t wait to meet you!
