This is a taster yoga class for teenagers aged 11 to 18. Yoga is superb in so many respects for all ages, but particularly for teenagers. Physically it helps with flexibility and keeps you fit and supple. Emotionally it is deeply relaxing, reducing stress and anxiety, calming a busy mind and building confidence. Perfect to get you through the pressure of school, exams and the changes you go through during the teenage years. So many young people say it gives them pride in their bodies – and the way they look!
Our yoga class for teenagers is run by Jo Studdert-Kennedy who is a qualified TeenYoga teacher with experience of teaching yoga and mindfulness to children and young people in mental health services. She is passionate about the benefits of sharing mindful yoga with teenagers to give them a lifelong tool they can use to manage stress and to feel good about their bodies. Our classes at The Hub are small (maximum 8) so lots of chance for fun and bonding with everyone else.
You do not need any experience of yoga, mediation or any other relaxation techniques – and mats are provided here at The Hub. So just bring yourself and learn as you go. Equally, if you are an experienced yogi, Jo will adapt the class to your pace as well. This is a Sunday evening class to set you up in the perfect frame of mind to take on school and whatever the week ahead holds in store for you…
Our second yoga for teenagers class is Sunday 2ndSeptember, 6-7pm, deliberately chosen because it’s the last Sunday before the start of term.
