Why is yoga & mindfulness so important for high school students?

There is growing evidence to suggest that Australian youth experience very high stress in schools, which has negative impacts on their academic performance and mental health. Mindful based yoga programs in the US are showing tremendous positive results in reducing stress and anxiety amongst students. 

The practice of yoga and mindfulness goes a long way in supporting high school students to manage their stress and anxiety. 

Here’s how! 

KARMA CLASSES FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS 

Our purposeful classes are specially designed to support high school students’ mental, physical and emotional wellbeing.  

A typical yoga class incorporates: 

  • Mindful breathing – using controlled breath techniques to support the nervous system back to calm 

  • Yoga poses – a variety of poses that include twists, forward + backbends, balancing, strengthening + toning to build strength, flexibility and balance. 

  • Mindful practices - focusing awareness on the present moment; acknowledging and accepting feelings, thoughts, + bodily sensations without judgement. 

  • Meditation techniques – guided or self-guided
