Empowering each other through yoga, mindfulness & true talk. promoting self worth, resiliency, and community leadership

 

YOGA

We use accessible, trauma-informed, body positive yoga to help young people connect with their bodies, calm their minds, learn invaluable self-care and self-regulation tools, and explore beyond their comfort zone in a non-competitive, judgement-free environment. We'll flow and breathe together, play with partner poses where appropriate, and build friendships and self-confidence. Most importantly, we encourage teens to be themselves and listen to their unique bodies. Each class will end with a relaxing savasana and guided meditation. 

MINDFULNESS PRACTICES

Using accessible breathing, meditation, and intention-setting exercises, we work with teens to incorporate meditation and other mindfulness practices into their daily lives to empower them to be less reactive, less stressed, more in touch with their emotions and goals, and better equipped to run the world, wherever their lives take them. 

TRUE TALKS & JOURNALING

No preaching here - just a safe place to explore. Facilitated by the teens themselves, and with the participation of True U facilitators, we use prompt-based journaling and group reflection to promote self discovery and self expression, build self confidence, and empower teens to be themselves in a safe, judgement-free environment. By sharing our experiences, struggles, and victories, these talks remind us that we are not alone. We are more alike than we are different, and we've each got a tribe of support standing behind us!
