Benefits of Yoga & Mindfulness for Teens:
Learn movement & mindful breathing techniques with a friendly & experienced teacher. Switch off from the activity focused life outside. Take a time out and develop your sense of self and self-awareness.
Focus & concentration become easier as you learn tools to help deal with stress or exam pressures and techniques for relaxation. Overall, you'll feel calmer with more energy after chilling out on your mat. With all the changes both physical & emotional during these years, Yoga teaches us how to go with the flow!
Mindfulness based yoga has proven to be effective at helping reduce stress & anxiety, helping young adults to feel calmer. Other proven benefits of yoga include:
Increased energy levels & improve sleep patterns
Helps improve self-esteem & good self-awareness
Improves physical activity levels & gain strength & flexibility
Supports students to practice balance, coordination & focus for exams
Compliments other sporting activities (I have experience teaching at youth & senior GAA Team levels)
