Teens frequently battle low self-esteem and issues of being self-conscious. During this stage of development, which is highlighted by change, both physically and emotionally, these teens are discovering who they are all while being faced with new challenges such as peer pressure, being overly stimulated by technology and pressured by peers. One of the many benefits of yoga for teens is the sense of self-acceptance and love it fosters. The Sanskrit term “namaste,” which is commonly said at the end of a yoga class, means “the divine light in me honors the divine light in you.” Yoga also benefits practitioners of any age to achieve reduced stress and increased health, strength, flexibility and focus.
Cherry Hill Health & Racquet Club (CHHRC) believes strongly about educating children on the benefits and rewards of a physically active lifestyle. With this concept in mind, they have created fun, imaginative programs for children as young as two, and more competitive, challenging programs for teens up to 18!
