Mindfulness for Teens

Join Leah Fietsam for this workshop designed to provide the basics of starting a meditation practice. We will share practical mindfulness exercises adolescents can use in school and in personal relationships. Learn basic stress reduction techniques for managing emotions, coping with adversity and gaining resiliency. We will learn breath work strategies and provide resources and techniques for managing the stress in daily life.

In this workshop, students learn:

  • Science and strategies for using mindfulness practice as a core skill to help cope with adversity and gain resiliency.
  • Mindfulness practices for use in personal lives and daily actions.
  • Tools for self-care to reduce anxiety, prevent burnout and manage technology overload.

Leah started practicing yoga 10 years ago as a complement to running and was compelled by the learning curve as there was always something new to discover and explore. When I am not practicing yoga, I spend time with my family and love to golf and run.
