Yoga for Teens with Joanne Leffeld.

(12-18 yrs)

New series begins November 6th 2014.

Build strength, flexibility, and confidence.

Focus and Calm your Mind.

Yoga builds strength, confidence and a deep sense of self control and wellbeing.  School sports build strength in the limbs but pay little attention to the overall health of the spine.  Kids and teens spend more time than any previous teen generation in sedentary poses, often slouching over computers.  Abdominals weaken, shoulders tighten, neck and headaches often result as well as a tight lower back.  A regular yoga practice can change the paradigm.  This series aims to give teens an awareness of their spine – from the perspective of building a strong core, open shoulders and a lifted chest (known to be an anti-depressent).



Checks made payable to Joanne Leffeld.  Bring your check on the first day of class.
