Dealing with demanding lives
Being at high school can get exhausting. Between exams, family, friends, parties, sport and everything else it’s hard for teenagers to relax and recuperate. Aside from the physical benefits, yoga teaches practical techniques to help teenagers calmly deal with the unique pressures they face mentally and emotionally.
On top off all their activities, in the last years of high school teens are becoming adults. Their minds are maturing rapidly as they start to consider the big picture and where they fit in. This is the beginning of them embracing their individuality and independence as young adults. Yoga helps guide them through this overwhelming time with energy, patience and strength.
Teaching teenagers is a really rewarding experience for yoga instructors too, mostly due to their fresh and curious perspective. As they get to know their students, teenage yoga instructors become positive role models who impact on their students’ development from adolescents into young adults, helping connect them with their unique inner questioners.
Lunge Yoga is committed to providing a well-rounded service for the community and this year has expanded its focus to teenagers at high school. We believe that yoga, taught by experienced teachers, is an important physical and mental tool to help teenagers as they move into the “adult world”.
The teenage yoga classes are an excellent complement to those involved in a heavy fitness regime at this age, for example, surfing, soccer, football, running, swimming and young athletes in general.
Our first Teenage Yoga class is in its fourth week. We’re really pleased with the great feedback we’ve had from some students and parents who are already seeing some great changes in their busy lives.
Our teenage yoga classes are aimed at both boy and girl high school students in years 10, 11 & 12 and are designed to help them deal with the demands and challenges of being at high school.
