Stretch your body. Strengthen your mind.

Fusion offers courses in yoga for middle school and high school students, with each class tailored to the individual student’s level of fitness and ability. Yoga plays a beneficial role for developing teens, building flexibility, self-awareness, and self-esteem while reducing stress and improving concentration.

Overview

As Fusion works to support each individual student in academic, emotional, and social growth, yoga plays a beneficial role for developing teens.

Yoga works to support these results in many ways:

  • Creating academic achievers: Yoga stresses effort and action. It is all about learning, growing, exploring, and developing as well as self-understanding and the pursuit of knowledge/wisdom. Yoga develops awareness of self and can improve your ability to understand how you learn/what you need to grow, which in turn will improve your studies in all other subjects.
  • Developing resourceful individuals: Yoga is all about balance, developing coordination, breath awareness, mindfulness, and ability to recognize when something is “off” and adjust accordingly (physically and mentally). Through yoga, you will develop tools to adjust and identify sources of support in the outside world and within yourself. Yoga encourages exploration and deep thinking/questioning; it promotes using all that we have available to us.
  • Strengthening compassionate and tolerant individuals: Yoga emphasizes acceptance and gratitude—enabling you as a practitioner to let go of the tendency to be critical and judgmental of yourself and others. Yoga’s philosophical principles emphasize compassion, kindness, and interconnectedness between ourselves and the world.
  • Building emotionally secure individuals: Yoga improves self-awareness and can provide you with an opportunity to develop your sense of self through techniques for redirecting thoughts, improving concentration, reducing stress, calming the nervous system, and making healthy choices. Yoga equalizes energy and tempers hyperactivity and depression. Yoga helps to improve self-image and body image.
