Becoming a teenager is one of the most transformational physical and emotional stages of a human being's life and sometimes a little help is needed along the way. Peak performance, quick reflexes, fast and efficient decision-making are all the domain of a teenager. However, when they find their normal environment is altered by an emotionally-charged event which is compounded by low empathy levels and a need to be validated, they can manifest extreme behaviour, like self-harming, drug-taking and obsessive compulsive disorder. An exploration of the body and mind through yoga postures, sequences and meditation techniques can alleviate the stress that accompanies these experiences and also the stress of dealing with the day-to-day challenge of existing with raging hormones and synaptic pruning.
Teens want to be free to work things out for themselves but when they can't, when it goes wrong they become sad and lose self-confidence. The Yoga Bananas® Teacher-Specific Teen Yoga Module, offers the skills to facilitate the development of emotional intelligence in teens, empowering them to 'problem resolve so that they optimally function today and in the future.
