Tween Yoga Chakra Journey (7-Week Series)

Today’s children, tweens, and teens all experience an increase in busyness, screen time, various activities, learning disabilities and special needs. Grounding down into the earth and developing self-awareness are important now more than ever. In this seven-week series we will definitely explore the physical practice of yoga, but we will go that step further that young tweens need these days. Each week will be themed with one of the seven chakras, and include chants, mudras, crystal work, energetic protections, meditations, diet recommendations, and overall self-exploration. The design of this program is to ensure the children warm up to this different style of philosophy, gain all the benefits they can, and create a safe intimate team setting. The style of learning will cover all learning styles from tactile movement, written worksheets, and interactive partner work.

Benefits for Tweens:
-Develops strength, flexibility, and balance
-Helps prevent sports injury
-Increase body awareness and self-confidence
-Helps manage stress of relationships, exams and life changes
