Happy Buddha Yoga—119 West Main St, Goshen, NY 10924
Yoga for Teens begins Thursday, May 30th!
FOR AGES 15-18 WITH BRIAN THOMASBERGER
The benefits of yoga are undeniable for teenagers. We have seen improvements in fitness levels, body, mind and health awareness, stress management, concentration, focus, schoolwork, respect and self-confidence to name a few. At Happy Buddha Yoga, we are bringing a new awareness to yoga for our teens.
Recent research has shown that yoga and breath work promote brain growth and learning. There are three reasons for this. First, yoga increases readiness to learn. Attention, motivation, and curiosity reduce stress and anxiety. Second, yoga enriches the brain! Movement increases levels of serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine; these three chemicals help students learn! Lastly, yoga creates new brain cells. Voluntary movement increases brain cells in the hippocampus, our center for learning in the brain.
Studies have shown that in recent years, the amount of anxiety in our teenagers has increased dramatically. At Happy Buddha, we are utilizing new strategies and techniques to help our teens cope, thrive and excel in day to day situations utilizing the powerful benefits of yoga and meditation. This class is available for Teens ages 15-18.
Our instructor for this program is Brian Thomasberger. He is a RYT-500hr instructor who has been teaching for over a decade. He has worked with at risk youth in schools, special needs communities, as well as specializing in yoga for men. He is currently training with Yoga Ed. which is an educational company dedicated to changing education through the practice of yoga. They train to empower school communities with yoga to cultivate health and wellness in children and teens.
