Yoga is extremely helpful in the realm of preventing injuries, as well as treating current ones.  Chronic and overuse injuries in youth athletes are becoming a significant issue! Too many talented kids are suffering setbacks before their careers even have a chance to begin. Young athletes can access the benefits of yoga to boost performance and avoid injuries.

Aside from the physical benefits, yoga teaches teens to cope with stress and anxiety, contribute positively to balance in life, well-being, and mental health. Yoga helps improve resilience, mood, and self-regulation skills pertaining to emotions and stress.  Teens in today’s world face numerous expectations and constant stimulation through the internet and other media and communication technologies.  More and more young adults experience stress and mental health challenges due to various new demands, standards and increase of competition.
