Growing into the healthiest version of ourselves is sustained by daily choices. In our teenage years, our attention is pulled in
many directions and deciding how to create a healthy life that we want to live can be confusing and feel like another homework assignment - a have to not a want to. Add high stakes testing, college applications pressure, game day jitters or opening night performances and it can feel like too much sometimes.
This course is designed to educate teens on how simple, daily practices support the health and resilience of our minds and bodies. Our aim is to explore the ways we can balance our physical, emotional and mental stress levels using practical meditation tools, mindful movement, breathing exercises and contemplative writing. Designed to kick-start the school year, this three-hour workshop provides each student with a toolbox from which a meaningful personal practice can be built.
This workshop will include:
Introduction to our brain-body connection
mental reset practices
postures that promote focus, concentration, and ease
healthy communication tools
