YOGA is being brought to the younger generations thanks to new classes designed for tweens and teens at the Satellite Centre in Greenfield.
The Teen Aum Yoga sessions are being run during school term-times starting on Sundays in January from 11am-12pm and 12pm-1pm.
The sessions involve breathing techniques and posture, relaxation and meditation. The techniques used enable mental health and physical well-being.
Anouska Kent, group leader, is fully-qualified with Teen Yoga Foundation and Starchild Yoga and has also worked as a secondary school teacher in the UK and abroad for more than a decade.
Knowing how Yoga is a holistic practice which helps teens manage their emotions and anxieties, Anouska has seen how it makes them more resilient, aware and able to face life’s ups and downs.
“Yoga is now practiced regularly by the England rugby team as well as lots of celebrities,” says Anouska.
“You don’t need to be bendy or sporty to enjoy yoga. Come and find out what it can do for you.”
Students attending her classes have commented on how much they have enjoyed the sessions.
Comments include: “I started Yoga for my gold Duke of Edinburgh. I wanted a way to help me relax and keep fit. I really enjoy the class. It really helps me and Anouska is really nice.”
“I was sceptical at first but once I started coming and trusting the poses I noticed I was more focused, relaxed and strong.”
“It has really chilled me out and it has made me strong mentally. Thank you.”
