Teens today face unprecedented challenges and the yoga mat can be a great place to turn when the world becomes too much. Teens 13+ are welcome to purchase a student pass to join our regular weekly classes, or may prefer a specialized offering with peers through our Resilient Teens program.
This innovative program was designed by yoga instructor and therapist, Dawn Slykhuis, to explore different tools for building resilience to manage realistic teen scenarios.
After spending years working in child and youth mental health in the public system, Dawn started to notice the benefits of utilizing yoga, breathe and meditation with her clients. Utilizing her clinical training and experience as a Registered Social Worker and a Yoga Instructor, Dawn has created a new yoga program designed to utilize evidence based best practices in promoting mental wellness among children and youth.
Teens enrolled in the Resilient Teens programs will experience the benefits of the physical practice, while learning techniques for resiliency they can take off the mat and into their day to day life.
Beginning in January 2022, we will be launching our new Resilient Teens program focusing on building confidence through leadership and advocacy. When teens learn that their voice matters, and that they can be part of solutions, self confidence grows. This special program will provide teens with tools and reflection to build confidence through action.
