We all remember the years where we were desperate to fit in, where we were finding our true friends, when it seemed our bodies and our minds had lost a connection. Those were our teenage years, where more than anything, we were just trying to figure out who we were.
Teens deserve all the love and care that they can get; to learn how to fit in, and learn how to be healthy. They deserve to reconnect their mind and bodies. Mostly, they deserve to learn how to love themselves.
Omaha Integrative Care is excited to announce a teen yoga and wellness program offered to 6th through 12th graders. This program is an open and judgment free place to learn more about yoga and wellness. There will be positive mantras to focus on for the week as well as activities to instill motivation, creativity and individualism. Included will be an introduction to a variety of different types of yoga including Vinyasa, Iyengar, Hatha, Yin, and Restorative. This program will provide an introduction to all the body’s energy locks and begin to learn the benefits and uses of each one. Lastly, there will be an introduction to meditation including breathing exercises and relaxation techniques to learn to calm and energize the body.
Yoga benefits all types of people by cultivating skills in order to promote happiness and mature in life. Yoga will specifically give the teens a space and the opportunity to explore their bodies, become aware of their surroundings as well as focus on being mindful. Yoga gives teens the ability and tools to self-soothe and heal themselves when things gets tough; and that can be the greatest lesson.
If you know a teen girl whom is ready to find herself, this will be for them!
The next session begins February 19th for 6th through 8th grade girls. The program is a 4-week session, meeting every Friday from February 19th through March 11th from 4:30-6:30pm. The cost of the 4-week session is $100 per teen, which includes a take home workbook and materials. Sessions will be held upstairs at Omaha Integrative Care located on the corner of 168th and Blondo Street.
