Teen Yoga Therapy

Teen yoga therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment for teens struggling with addiction and mental health disorders. If you’re looking for an alternative to traditional therapy, or even to compliment your teen’s individual therapy, yoga therapy is a great option. Yoga can help your teen learn how to cope with stress and anxiety in a healthy way, while also improving impulse control. In addition to yoga therapy, Key Healthcare also offers residential treatment for adolescents for a more comprehensive approach to recovery.

Understanding Teen Yoga Therapy

What is Yoga Therapy?

Teen yoga therapy is the use of yoga to promote physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Yoga therapy can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions in teenagers, including addiction, anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, and eating disorders. Yoga therapy is based on the belief that the body and mind are interconnected. When one is out of balance, it can lead to physical and emotional problems. Yoga therapy aims to restore balance by teaching people how to connect with their bodies and breath.
Yoga therapy is not just about doing yoga poses. It also includes breathing exercises, meditation, and relaxation techniques. Yoga therapists tailor yoga programs to meet the needs of each individual client.

How Does Yoga Therapy for Teens Work?

Teen yoga therapy involves a combination of poses, breathing exercises, mindfulness, and mediation. Yoga poses, or asanas, can help improve strength and flexibility. Deep breathing exercises, or pranayama, can help control anxiety and promote relaxation. Lastly, mindfulness meditation can help focus the mind and improve impulse control.
Yoga therapists use a variety of techniques to help their clients. They may use props to help with alignment or to make a pose more accessible. They may also use music, aromatherapy, or massage.
