Boys need yoga!

New teenager class starts June 6th – boys encouraged!

SONY DSCWe’ve set up a new teenager yoga class for both teenage girls and boys. Our Monday teenager class is very girl-dominant and we hope 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 runs on termtime Thursdays at 4.30 and is taught by Zoë.

SONY DSCPlease help us get this class off the ground – tell your teenagers!

Parent/teenager yoga

Come to yoga with your Mum or Your Son!

SONY DSCWe think multi-generational yoga is a great way of sharing some time together and can be of tremendous benefit to all. Many people have asked us about classes suitable for parents/guardians and their children to attend together.

Of course Yogawest runs specialist child and teenager classes which your child may want to come to. If the times don’t suit, or they want to do an extra class, or just come with a parent, then that’s also possible.

Be aware that adult classes are aimed at adults, teenagers (12+) can come and try an adult class, but may find it too long (or too slow!). So, we suggest you come and along and try a class and see how it works.

The classes we’d recommend as being particularly suitable are:

Thursday 5–6.30pm with Sam (general class)

Saturday 9.30–11am with Annemarie (beginners class)

Monday 6.45–8.15pm with Frances (general class)

Teenagers who are already attending the teenager/young adults class can come on their own with permission from the teacher, but on the whole, those under 16 should be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

If you have any questions, please ask

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…

What do you think? Let Jon know if you are interested.
