Teen Yoga Classes
These classes are for 10 - 15 year olds.
The classes bring improved concentration, reduced stress and increased self confidence. The teens all enjoy a break from the normal day to day stresses and take time to enjoy just being in the present and allowing their brains to relax. The classes are planned to give the teens tools they can use now and in the future. With the positive use of epigenetics teens will feel the lighter and more at ease after the sessions.
