“Yoga helps me feel relaxed. I really like the sun salutations and breathing.”
”I wish I could come to Yoga everyday after school. It always feels so good.”

“My favorite poses are child’s pose and tree pose.”

—Teen Students

Teens face many of the same stressors as adults do, as well as others unique to adolescence. Yoga was been proven to be a helpful and healthful way for teens to release stress and learn to find balance

  • Students will learn breathing techniques, mindfulness, Yoga postures and relaxation methods

  • All Yoga experience levels are welcome to attend

  • Students ages 12 years and up

  • Ask us about using your health plan or wellness debit card for this class

By now the physical benefits resulting from a regular yoga practice are well established and accepted. The mental and psychological effects, however, can be somewhat harder to prove. Helping to do just that, Harvard Medical School has released a study, co-led by Jessica Noggle, Ph.D., on the psychological benefits of yoga on teenagers in 11th and 12th grade. Published in the April issue of the Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics, the study concluded that yoga may “serve a preventative role in adolescent mental health” by providing teens with beneficial ways to deal with stress and trauma, instead of falling into the dangerous and destructive behavioral patterns so prevalent in high schools across the country.

Kids Games.jpg

Kids will enjoy an exploratory and imaginative Yoga class as we make-believe we are traveling around the world into dense forests, deep oceans, and wild prairies. Children will enjoy a reverence for the natural world as we posture our bodies modeling animals and plants.

Kids love to practice Yoga like a cat, lion, dog, and fish. They will balance like trees and breathe/rest like a coral reef. After 60 min of Yoga, children will have a brief water and snack break - please send a piece of fruit and a water bottle with them to enjoy.

We will then play group games for the second half of class. These skill-building games encourage listening, trust, playfulness, and creativity (and lots of giggles).

Ages 5-11

Using singing bowls, kazoos, drums, and bells united with expressive Yoga poses, we will discover the relationship between sounds (including silence) and movements.

After 60 min of Yoga, children will have a brief water and snack break - please send a piece of fruit and a water bottle with them to enjoy.

For the second half of class we will craft our own instruments out of upcycled materials and then play music together in concert. Such fun!

Community Drum Circle

Community Drum Circle

“ I don’t have any rhythm!”– a phrase often uttered but one that is completely incorrect. Steve Bell will facilitate a drum circle that will serve to summarily dispel this concept. The session will serve to awaken the inner rhythm that is within all of us through a hands-on, fully participatory 1 ½ hour of guided hand drumming.

Inside.jpg

The overriding goal of the class is that we will all leave feeling better than upon arriving.

 In addition to freeing our inner rhythm, we’ll explore drum techniques which we’ll apply to simple African rhythms along with the relaxation/meditation component of drumming.

Steve is a retired educator who greatly enjoyed working with staff and students. As a life-long percussionist, he has found the ideal way to combine these passions through facilitating drum circles.

Participants need bring only an openness to participate. All drums and hand-held percussion instruments will be provided

Recommended ages 12 and up
