Teens

Sessions can be delivered to Secondary Schools to aid relieving stress and anxiety during periods of pressure such as exams, tests and coursework.  All programmes are designed to meet the specific needs of the group.

-Learn how to calm your mind through movement and postures

-Use your breathing as a tool to distress, relax and be present (being present in each moment allows us to connect with ourselves whilst easing our worries and anxieties that can be brought on by every day life and a busy modern society)

The yoga session was really enjoyable and relaxing, it included stretching excercises on your own and also with others, and also a very de-stressing bit at the end concentrating on breathing.  Overall, it was lovely and relaxing experience with a great instructor.”  Nick, Youth Residential Nov 2017

Feedback from our sessions

“I felt so relaxed in the session last night it was so beneficial for me personally, I have been to other yoga classes in the past but have never felt at ease as I did, the head massage at the end was a really nice touch… I have to say this was probably the best yoga class I have ever been to.”

Amy Conner, Member of Staff at Woodlands Limited

 

I found the Yoga to be exactly what I have been searching for in a class – gentle exercise coupled with breathing/self-meditation techniques.  For me it is all about not feeling guilty about taking time out for myself and allowing myself to TRY and relax. I already feel more chilled out than I have in a long time!”

 

“I didn’t feel 100% last night and thought I wouldn’t be able to comfortably complete the session, how wrong I was, it made me feel so relaxed and the session was just perfect.”
