Event Details

Interested in trying yoga for the first time or continuing your yoga journey? Join us for this weekly session for teens! Youth yoga is a healthy way to connect with your breath and move your body. Many of the techniques offered can positively affect your mood and provide tools for coping with stress in everyday life. We will discuss topics such as mindful speech, body awareness and breathing as a tool for coping with and moving through heavy emotions. 

 For this program, you will need a yoga mat and a pillow/cushion. You can also choose to bring a light blanket. Please wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely and without restriction.

 About the instructor:
Marie-Louise is passionate about community, health and wellbeing. She has been teaching various therapeutic styles of yoga since 2015 in martial arts studios, boxing gyms, yoga studios and now virtually from her home. As a recreational kickboxer for 9 years, Marie-Louise worked her physical body hard and pushed her limits on a regular basis. She was proud of her physical strength and endurance and was also experiencing restriction and discomfort frequently, despite regular stretching. Marie-Louise was drawn to find something therapeutic to compliment her hobbies.

 In 2016, Marie-Louise was introduced to Kundalini Yoga in the Y.O.G.A. for Youth Teacher Training Program. She was amazed how this practice challenged her strength in many ways and inspired her to learn more. The breathing techniques, movements and relaxation methods were so beneficial to help her mind and body find more ease. In hindsight, she wished she had these tools as a youth. They also helped increase her balance, core strength and breath capacity.
