Neuroscience has proven that the human brain develops into the mid-twenties. As a result, young people have to overly rely on their emotions rather than on language and reason for navigating tween life. The brain’s malleability during tween and teen years marks a crucial stage in both cognitive and emotional development and yoga is a useful tool to help young people thrive right now during school years and into adulthood. This series will include yoga appropriate for tweens, breathing and centering techniques, community-building exercises, and tools and tips for relaxation. Taught through a framework of respect for all students, this series is designed to use yoga to help students cultivate healthful ways to manage their emotions and stress levels.
