Yoga Teens Workshop: Learn and Practice (Ages 12-17): Have you ever wondered about the culture and history behind yoga?

Once everyone's minds are cleared, we learn how modern yoga was shaped and spread to the world because of S.T. Krishnamacharya and his students. We end the class discussing and practicing meditation techniques. Along the way, students are encouraged to journal, draw, ask questions and discover themselves through meditation. Students take home a deeper understanding of yoga and tools to help manage stress and increase focus.
