    Teens Yoga Retreats in the School Holidays

    Dune Folk will be running a range of kids and teens yoga workshops over the Easter school holidays targeted at specific age groups and with the unique needs of that stage of life firmly in mind.

    Workshops are run by Blair, a fully qualified school and yoga teacher and they incorporate movement, breathing, games, relaxation and creative activities to help young people find tools for a calm and happy life so that they can live joyfully and thrive.

    This retreat style workshop offers teens the chance to dive into yoga and the many benefits it can offer. The demands on teenagers can be numerous and unique. In this workshop we explore how asana (physical poses), pranayama (breath work), mindfulness, meditation and more can be used to navigate these exciting, inquisitive and at times challenging teenage years. Yogis learn techniques for staying grounded during study, ways to tackle overwhelm, how to find clarity during confusing times and much more.

    The details: Tuesday April 9th ~ 3:00-4:30pm ~ Investment: $32
