"We do Yoga to make life more beautiful”
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Where: Not running at present
When: Not running at present
Cost: Not running at present
Why: The tools taught in yoga and mindfulness classes will reduce anxiety, increase resilience, compassion and self-esteem; and help with a more relaxed and focused state during test taking. By creating more space in our bodies and our minds we become less reactive, we develop discipline and self-regulation and are more equipped to navigate the challenges faced in our teenage years and beyond.
