Adolescent Yoga & Workshops


These January 2016 School Holidays, Human Happiness is offering a very special and unique Personal Development opportunity for Adolescents of the ACT.

We all know how much pressure adolescents experience, just by being adolescents (because of course, we were all adolescents ourselves once).

It can be tough as an adolescent, just getting to a place where you feel accepted, where you find a social group in which you feel like you belong.

It can be a significant challenge overcoming awkwardness around your growing body and all other body image concerns, and dealing with surges of hormones that seem to come on so suddenly and often leave you feeling angry, confused, out of control and very frustrated.

And then there’s relationships with parents, siblings, teachers, friends, boyfriends and girlfriends. Ah….the potential for issues is so immense for many young people!

And then adding to the mix the ongoing pressure to succeed in today’s highly competitive academic arena. It’s becoming more and more difficult to get on top of the pack, and sometimes to even keep up with the pack. Exams, Oral Presentations (which are more frequently used as assessment now, than ever before), Assignments, and even just Homework can, at times feel overwhelming and next to impossible!

This is the time (adolescence) in one’s life when stress, anxiety, depression, lack of concentration/focus, insomnia, cravings/addictions, poor lifestyle choices, weight gain, and at times a significant drop in health and wellbeing, can become an issue. The transition from child to adult is of course where many “adult” issues come to the surface.

And that’s where these Adolescent Personal Development Workshops come in!

For each workshop, Kylie tailors a series of carefully selected techniques from yoga, mudras (hand and body gestures), pranayam (breathing techniques), affirmations, light and sound therapy and many more Healing Therapy disciplines, to bring you a tool box that you can employ to relieve any symptoms involved, and to work towards positive outcomes in this area of your life.

You will be shown simple, easy, fun and very effective techniques used to dissolve negative emotions, transform states of mind, and to clear physical “blocks”. And in some workshops you will also be shown techniques in meditation, communication, dance and fitness.

The Content of these Workshops

Each workshop goes for 3 hours. (Morning Workshops 9am – 12pm. Afternoon workshops 1pm – 4pm).

Students who are booked in for full days can arrive as early as 8:30am, and can stay up until 5pm. They will be supervised through the lunch hour and from 4 - 5pm. Students don't leave the premises for the duration of their booking.

The first hour of each workshop is yoga, specifically formulated to tackle the issues in the theme of the workshop.

The last two hours are packed full of useful information about this topic. And there’s always a workbook to accompany this section.

Creating a Safe Environment

Kylie has always been able to create a safe environment for her students, clients, friends and associates alike. People tend to naturally feel safe, understood, heard, “gotten” and fully accepted in Kylie’s presence.

With so much experience in, and success with, relating to adolescents, Kylie finds that adolescents almost instantly feel comfortable working with her.

Kylie respects differences in opinions, cultures, lifestyles, values and beliefs, and keeps all of her workshops free from discrimination, religious reference, and opinions.

She also ensures (setting ground rules) that participants also maintain a level of respect and integrity when sharing in group discussions.
