Discovering Your Superpower: Relaxation and Team Building for Tweens and Teens – All New!

July 9 – August 8     

Being a tween or teen can be really stressful! Mindfulness is a powerful way to handle stress, and live life more joyfully. Mindfulness is about living fully in the present moment, without judgment, and with an attitude of kindness and curiosity. It’s about breathing, noticing what’s happening right here and now, sending a gentle smile to whatever you’re experiencing in this moment whether it’s easy or difficult, and then letting it go. It sounds simple, but it’s not always easy to do, especially when you are stressed! In this program, you will learn specific methods of focusing on breathing, the body, internal thoughts and feelings, and the surrounding world. You will learn to choose the words and actions that can improve your relationships, school work, sports, and many other aspects of your life! You will participate in yoga, meditation, and team building activities that will leave you feeling great about yourself and build friendships with other participants.

THINGS TO BRING TO CLASS: Water and wear comfortable clothing for movements.
