teengirls

teenage girls (13-18 years)

Mon 5:30-6:30pm
The teenage years are possibly the most challenging for young girls – surging hormones, sexuality, school stresses, peer pressure – just a few of the daily challenges they face. Not to mention the effects on their posture as they spend many hours hunched over their computers, phones, desks and lounging in front of the TV.
These classes will explore how practicing yoga helps strengthen and tone muscles and bones to support posture, while simultaneously working with breath and mindfulness to relieve stress and anxiety. Each class will be a safe place to explore and express thoughts and emotions through mindful yoga practices and meditation.
Maximum number of students per class is 18.
To ensure a place in each class, it’s recommended to book for the entire course.
If a class is missed, make up classes can be taken during any of our regular 6am, 7pm or 8:15pm classes.
