From help in sports, relationships, the classroom, and the home, yoga continuously supports growth and development. Aside from the physical benefits of yoga, yoga teaches techniques for coping with the unique issues they’re faced with everyday—insecurity about their changing bodies, the enormous pressure to fit in, stressful schedules, exams and uncertainty about their beliefs and their futures.
Movement, and therefore yoga, is essential for fast-growing bodies.
The practice of yoga offers adolescents a discipline for discovering who they truly are. Beginning that process at a young age can shape who a tween becomes.
It’s about nourishing their imagination, asking for their insights, and then genuinely listening to what they have to say.
With celebrities and role models such as David Beckham, Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Ryan Giggs, Orlando Bloom, Madonna and Sting, using yoga regularly it has become more accepted among teenage girls and boys, and for the sporty teens, it’s more recognised especially in conjuncture with their regular training on the field for sports such as running, cycling, rugby and football.
