Yoga for Teenagers
From the experience of my own children and their peers I realise the social and academic pressures teenagers can experience. This is born out by:
- 10% of young people have a clinically diagnosable mental problem
- In any given year 20% of adolescents may experience mental health problems
- 50% of mental health problems are established by the age of 14 and 75% by the age of 24 (mental health foundation)
In order for teenagers to cope with the social and exam stress that many of them face they need tools and life skills they can use to help them through this potentially challenging time.
I qualified to teach yoga and mindfulness to teenagers with Charlotta Martinus, founder of TeenYoga, and have in-depth understanding of the growth and development of teenagers and how yoga can help them.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss the possibility of classes or private lessons please contact me.
