Yoga for Teenagers is an exciting new project to introduce yoga to young people in Brighton. An initiative of our youth team, the group will be promoting the benefits of yoga–the physical benefits of increasing strength, flexibility and balance but more importantly the other benefits to well-being such as helping to manage anxiety, stress, giving better sleep, improving self-esteem and self-body image
The 10 week project will have the fantastic Laura Clark teaching the class with the support of a youth worker who can give any additional support needed. Laura has lots of ideas on how to make the classes fun and engaging for young people. There is sure to be a variety of postures and relaxation as would be expected but also lots of laughter is anticipated too. The project is due to start at Moulsecoomb Leisure Centre on the 24th April, 4-5pm and will run for 10 weeks. Any young people who want to have a go can just turn up and complete a short registration form. The sessions are run as a drop in so young people can join the classes at any point during the programme
The project is a great partnership between the Brighton Yoga Foundation and the Trust for Developing Communities. Joining us in this partnership is Freedom Leisure who are providing the space for the classes. Funding for the project has come from the Robert Eaton Memorial Fund and Brighton City Council.
