Students in Junior and Senior High School often spend large portions of their day in sedentary pursuits. Teenagers need a greater challenge and more detailed yoga instruction than elementary aged students while keeping it fun and engaging.

YIMS yoga classes help teens to discover self confidence, positive body health and awareness, emotional balance and tools for stress management.
