It’s not just adults that have busy, stressful lives. Many school-aged kids spend eight hours a day in class, followed by extracurricular activities, sports practice, music lessons, and then hours of homework. Add in research reports and test preparation and you have a formula for anxiety and stress that can have a measurable impact on your child.
One solution: the proven relaxation and meditation techniques of yoga. This scientific system of physical and mental practices originated in India more than three thousand years ago, and today it is the salvation of many busy and over-stressed adults. Breathing techniques, visualizations and affirmations can help relax and de-stress over-programmed teens, providing a period of calm in a hectic life.
