Workshop Description

We know at Majestic Yoga Studio that being a teen can be very stressful! Whether it's school, friends, dating - the teen years are full of difficult challenges. Finding a balanced way to deal with stress and worry can be hard. The Mindfulness and Yoga Education (MYE) Program offers a curriculum that fosters personal development in a light hearted and lively group setting. In this hour long class, we will focus on mindfulness training, breathing, yoga, and journaling - all skills that help teens manage stress, anxiety, and worry. Class is limited to 10 students.

Your child's daily life and important events will be better when they develop the ability to:
Learn how to label strong emotional states ("Name it to tame it")
Orienting and “anchoring” to sound, sight and the external environment (an easy way to engage the parasympathetic nervous system when a student is getting stuck in sympathetic/fight-flight arousal).
Working with the breathing sense in various ways to promote grounding and centering.
Practicing Yoga and movement to connect to the body and mind in a healthy and safe way.
Stepping into difficult situations rather than avoid them.
Class is limited to 10 students.
