Yoga for Teens
12 - 18 y/o
You're in high school... Piles of homework, lots of tests. But also sports, you may work on the side and you have a social life: your Snapchat and other socials are constantly buzzing. Super fun, but sometimes a lot, maybe even a bit busy and chaotic in your head. Everyone has an opinion, the teachers, your friends, your parents...
Actually, you're looking forward to a moment of just nothing.. just a moment in which all you have to do is relax and clear your head...
Do you recognize that feeling? Then Yoga for Teens is for you.
Yoga consists of movements and breathing exercises to clear your head, relax your body and feel good about yourself. It helps you learn to deal with pressure and stress, you build self-confidence and you become more confident. You do not need to have any experience with yoga or be very flexible for this class. Sounds good?

THE ESSENCE OF YOGA
By practicing yoga poses we are able to clear the stuck physical areas, which then gives us mental clarity as well. It becomes easier to focus, to concentrate and to make efficient effective choices.
The poses and breath help you to experience first hand, in your own body, how to start to bring balance into your life. Physically, mentally and emotionally. Using the body to help break through any stuck stiff area’s that are holding stress and or creating pain. These stuck areas are a distraction which slow us down and keep us from being the best that we can be.
Why you would like to start taking yoga classes is different for everyone. And that's just how it's supposed to be! It's all about you and feeling like the best version of yourself. Sometimes this happens by slowing down and taking more relaxed classes. Other times you need some fire to turn inward. Everything is okay. It's about connection. With yourself. Your body, mind and soul.
We teach based on the principles of Pralaya Yoga. This type of yoga was created by Robert Boustany, and it's based on the idea that balancing your joints will create an optimal flow of energy through your body. This balance can be created by combining two elements, which are releasing connective tissue and strengthening weak muscles. For example: when your hamstring (muscle in the back of the upper leg) is tight, most types of yoga will focus on stretching this muscle. In Pralaya Yoga we believe that it's better to strengthen quadriceps (muscle in the front of the upper leg), so that the hamstring is given more space to relax and will automatically become less tight. This tactic can be used anywhere in the body.
All of our teachers teach based on the core values of Pralaya Yoga. Would you like to know more about this type of yoga? Join our specific Pralaya yoga class. Currently, Robert is teaching an online Pralaya-based Ashtanga class in which you will dive a lot deeper into this amazing form of yoga.
