Yoga for Young People
Yoga, incorporating breathwork, movement, mindfulness, and meditation is a powerful tool to assist young people; therapeutically supporting developing minds and bodies. Young people report feeling more relaxed, refreshed, connected, confident, calm, and resiliant following practice. It improves emotional and physical balance, brain function, wellbeing and sleep quality, and reduces anxiety.
The many benefits for Young People are supported by research including the Harvard Medical College in America, Dr. Sat Bir Khalsa, and the Patanjali Institute in Northern India, Dr Shirley Telles.

"It was relaxing and claming"
"I felt peaceful and graceful"
Kundalini Yoga is a blend of many traditions, and is known as the yoga of awareness. In just one Kriya: a set of exercises incorporating breathwork, movement, meditation, and mindfullness; you may rapidly experience the physical, mental, and spiritual balance.
Kundalini Yoga is suitable for all ages and abilities. Practice regulates the glandular system, strengthens the nervous system, and calms the mind. The greatest benefit is likely to be the speed of positive change felt within yourself.

"I wasn’t sure what to expect .... to be honest I was a bit bit skeptical and unsure if it would be something I would enjoy… but I really did. You introduced it all to us in such a wonderful way (you’re a great teacher) and I ended up having an emotional and spiritual workout, as well as a physical one! Thank you A.S.
