Discover how to effectively engage teenagers in a supportive yoga practice during the Yoga In My School (YIMS) Teen Yoga Teacher Training.

Teens often experience large amounts of stress due to school, social pressure, family dynamics, work, hormones, body image issues and more.

Empower teens to discover themselves from the inside out, foster focus and concentration. By increasing strength and flexibility, teenagers learn to nurture themselves through positive practices and relaxation, and develop health and wellness habits that last a lifetime. This training addresses how yoga and mindfulness skills advance the physical, mental, social and emotional development of teenagers.
