Goals

Our goals are to teach teenagers how to live a more mindful existence with less stress and more balance and joy in their lives.

Within a workshop setting, the students will learn how to reduce stress and anxiety through yoga, mindfulness meditation, and journaling. In addition, other practical approaches to calming the mind and body will be discussed.

Reasons

Reasons

Over 70% of the teens reported feeling sad, worried and concerned about their future.
