How is Tween & Teen yoga different than the yoga classes adults are attending?
The classes are geared for a developmental period between being a child and being an adult. It is a time of extreme change and growth. Students are taking a class with their peers and learning about yoga at a time when their peers and social life are important to them. It’s a time to learn about how to take yoga off the mat and into their everyday lives as they they experience changing bodies, peer pressure, the demands of school, preparing for college, and any and all the stressors of growing up that a teen may face.
