Yoga has many benefits that can help teens to relieve stress and anxiety. Yoga enables people to connect to their bodies and minds through yoga stretches, breathing and mindfulness techniques. It is particularly beneficial for girls and boys who have a lack of confidence, poor body image or who are suffering from anxiety or depression. Although you do not have to be experiencing those things to gain the benefits. Over time they will learn how to recognise negative thought patterns and how they relate to tension in the body. Mindfulness will enable them to calm down and re-connect with their bodies when under stress in everyday situations. It is a valuable tool they can take away and will guide them throughout their journey in life.
