This Class will offer teens the experience of the power and benefits of yoga in a fun and teen-friendly environment. Yoga helps teens develop better body awareness, self-control, flexibility, and coordination. Students will learn to carry these skills beyond class and into their hectic daily lives of school, family and work responsibilities. The goal of the class is for teens to develop a balanced and integrated body for a lifetime of health and wellness through self-awareness and self-management.
