Freshmen and Generation Pound
Did you know only 21.6% of 6 to 19-year-old children and adolescents in the United States attained 60 or more minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity on at least 5 days per week?
And did you also know that by age 13, 70% of kids drop out of youth sports?
Let’s change that !
Today, these amazing young men and women received 45 mins of vigorous exercise disguised as FUN as required by the CDC.
Thanks for Rockin’ out with GYM:30, FLA!

Aside from the physical benefits of yoga, yoga teaches teens techniques for coping with the unique issues they’re faced with everyday—insecurity about their changing bodies, the enormous pressure to fit in, stressful schedules, and uncertainty about their beliefs and their futures.
☝🏽Although teens have much to gain from yoga, their particular circumstances may present many challenges for yoga teachers, and approaches that work in adult or small children’s yoga classes may not be applicable.
