Stress Reduction for Teens

American teens report experiences with stress that follow a similar pattern as adults, according to a survey released in 2014 by the American Psychological Association (APA). Stress causes feelings of being overwhelmed, exhaustion through the day, inability to sleep at night, and although not sick, just not feeling right. This informative program is designed to empower teens to take charge of their health by practicing yoga, meditation and breathing activities. The tools offered include self care tips, offer immediate and long term relief, do not have physical or time requirements and can be practiced anytime, anywhere. Designed for schools and based on Ayurvedic teachings, Stress Reduction for Teens has been received by Queensbury High School and Future Business Leaders of America.
