Teenage boys class

Boys need Yoga!

SONY DSCWe’d love to set up a class suitable for teenage boys. Our popular teenager class is very girl-dominant and we think more boys may come if there is a class with more boys in it.

Teenagers tend to get very stiff in their joints and muscles and due to various lifestyle habits (sport, gaming and of course school-stress), can find it difficult to undo tension and body stress. Regular yoga practice can help to teach and encourage greater body awareness, flexibility and focus.

Many sporting celebrities (Ryan Giggs for example) have used Iyengar yoga to support their career in Rugby, Football and Cricket to name but 3 sports.

This class is likely to run on a Friday at 4.30 and be taught by Diana. We expect to promote it to secondary school age boys, but allow girls to attend so long as they don’t outnumber the boys!

SONY DSCWe will need a group of 5 or 6 to get it off the ground, so if you can get a few boys together, great!

It would be good to start this after Easter 2016…
