In this rolling series for teens we will explore the expression of language through the body. Two of the four days we will focus on creative movement and dance, exploring the body’s intuitive motion.

During the other two days we will move in tune with the breath in a slow steady vinyasa and restorative based yoga sequence.

Both sessions will always end with a guided meditation and deep relaxation followed by independent journaling. This class is perfect for teens who are experiencing anxiety, depression, eating disorders and or insomnia that want to add a creative, fun, body-based practice into their therapeutic model. This class will be rolling so there is an opportunity to continue after the four weeks if interested.

“I have never done a yoga class quite like this before and I have never enjoyed yoga so much!”

“I always left so relaxed and loved the tools we learned to use outside of class.”

About Lakshmi:

Lakshmi was led to hatha yoga in 2003 in search of a quieter mind. In the summer of 2010 she moved to the Sivananda Ashram in Grass Valley, CA where she served her Guru, Swami Sitaramananda, and taught traditional Hatha yoga, over the next 10 months. Upon leaving the ashram she settled back in her roots of the Pacific Northwest where she taught and studied restorative and vinyasa yoga. Lakshmi moved to Vermont in the spring of 2012; it was then she began to recognize her calling in the therapeutic yoga realm; Lakshmi now specializes in meditation and yoga for both teen and adult Eating Disorders, Addiction, and Anxiety.
