Teens need yoga just as much as kids! With all the stress of school, tests, college applications, personal and social lives teens barely have enough time to rejuvenate and let out stress. Yoga is great tool to not only allow teens to unwind and de-stress but to also stretch, exercise and breathe.
Sean has been able to bring yoga to teens in several different ways. Through teaching classes at studios, private classes and group classes for sports teams. Teens have walked away with the knowledge to not only practice yoga and mindfulness on their own but to also apply it to their everyday stress-filled lives.
Below you will find class descriptions and types of classes Sean is able to provide to teens.
