During the teenage years lots of changes are happening to the body. During puberty and other types of development there may be many imbalances in the body. There is no better way to help than with some yoga practice. According to yoga philosophy, a healthy spine leads to a balance throughout the body and can ultimately strengthen the brain.
Introducing yoga to teens will also teach the valuable lesson that the body is a temple that should be respected. This goes hand in hand with teaching self confidence and self awareness. Yoga will also help teens that are involved with sports. Any sport can be harsh on the body, especially a changing one, and yoga will stretch the muscles and strengthen them that will prevent injury in other sports.
