Mindful Teens (Summer Series)

$120 for all 6 weeks

If your child is in middle school or high school you know that the demands on teens in our society are unprecedented. With the pressures of academics, sports, peer-pressure, competitiveness, dating, internet, & social media, life can feel stressful and overwhelming for adolescents.
We can help young people strengthen their resiliency, adaptability, attention skills, self-regulation and emotional balance by providing them with life skills thru Mindfulness practice. In this weekly class we will provide teens with relevant and tangible tools that increase calm, focus, concentration, impulse control, self awareness and the knowledge to apply more skillful responses to difficult emotions.

We will explore Mindfulness practices that give our teens the ability to navigate life with increased empathy and understanding of others, increased self compassion and a development of natural conflict resolution skills.
Summer is the perfect time to develop these skills before school begins again in the fall. No experience necessary. This is a weekly drop off class.

This course meets for 6 weeks, every Friday from 3-4 pm.
Appropriate for teens ages 13-17
