Why yoga for young adults?
Great physical workout based in building core strength and mobility
Promotes healthy eating and lifestyle habits
Nurtures self -acceptance and ability to develop meaningful relationships
Increases self-awareness
Practices regulating thoughts and feelings in a productive way
Teaches how to calm the mind, ease anxiety, and improve focus

Neuropsychiatrists know that resiliency and kindness is developed and strengthened in the ability of the child’s brain to practice reflection of thoughts and feelings and engage in compassionate relationships.
