Aside from the physical benefits of yoga, yoga teaches teens techniques for coping with the unique issues they’re faced with everyday—insecurity about their changing bodies, the enormous pressure to fit in, stressful schedules, and uncertainty about their beliefs and their futures.
Movement, and therefore yoga, is essential for fast-growing bodies.
The practice of yoga offers adolescents a discipline for discovering who they truly are. Beginning that process at a young age can shape who a teen becomes.
Teens can tell that yoga rewires them and gets them to their center, to the essence of living. They also sense that yoga gives them a reliable resource to shape their developing philosophies and aspirations.
It’s about nourishing their imagination, asking for their insights, and then genuinely listening to what they have to say.
