Pre-teens and teens aged 11-17 years are welcome to attend the evening classes that I run at Beckets Sports Centre in Dartford on Thursdays from 6.00pm to 7.00pm and on Friday evenings from 7.00pm to 8.00pm. While primarily aimed at adults I am happy for pre-teens/teens within this age bracket to come along with their parents or a responsible adult so they can also enjoy the benefits of yoga at a cost of just £4.00. Teens aged 14 years + are welcome to come unaccompanied if they wish and if this is okay with their parents. Please note I am fully insured and qualified to teach both children and adults although do bear in mind these are structured as adult classes.

There are so many benefits of doing yoga for pre-teens/teenagers: flexibility, balance, co-ordination, relaxation, concentration, well-being, confidence, the list is endless particularly at a time in their lives when they are facing the many and varied challenges of school work, extra-curricular activities, social pressures and emerging hormones. Yoga can be a great outlet for helping teenagers to learn to relax, relieve stress and find a place of calm within as well as being a chance to get in touch with their bodies.
Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme & International Baccalaureate Programmes
Please note that for teenagers completing their Duke of Edinburgh Awards and International Baccalaureate Programmes that yoga falls within the Physical Activity category and I am more than happy to sign off forms for those students attending my classes for the requisite length of time. This year I have already had a handful of teenagers attending my classes for their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Awards as well as IB programmes.
Any questions please do feel free to contact me.
