Rise & Thrive

Meditation for Teens

Workshops for teens ages 12-19

Meditate. Explore. Connect. Thrive.

Meditation and yoga are integral components of our daily school routine, seamlessly incorporated into various activities such as classroom sessions, farm volunteering, hillside hikes, and visits to our sister school, just 15 minutes away. Regardless of the setting, we prioritize the time to center our energy and quiet our bodies and minds. Moreover, these practices extend into our summer programs.

Rise & Thrive Meditation for Teens Circle 

Have you ever noticed the surge of excitement, happiness, and joy while engaging in outdoor activities like hiking, camping, or exploring parks and beaches? Undoubtedly!

However, returning home after such adventures may bring about a shift in emotions, where the initial thrill dissipates, leaving behind a sense of longing, boredom, or even overwhelm. You might even find yourself feeling as though something is missing or unfulfilled from the outing, unable to recapture the same level of happiness or joy experienced earlier.

By enrolling your teenagers in our workshops and programs, they can  learn to move through life in a centered way, reconnecting with the inherent joy and happiness within themselves. Our encounters with nature and exciting adventures merely scratch the surface of what awaits us through the transformative power of yoga and meditation.

In our Meditation for Teens programs, participants can acquire a range of skills and techniques, including:

  • Pranayama techniques such as diaphragmatic breathing and even-count breathing (triangle breathing).
  • Cultivating proper posture.
  • Utilizing affirmations.
  • Achieving balance and integration of body, mind, and spirit.

“My sister and I went to both of the September sessions, and both had a blast! It was what I looked forward to at the end of the week. Meditation for Teens is something that I feel is very important and a great idea! My sister and I would both love if we could come back. Thank you so much for what you are all doing."  - SV & AV, High School Freshmen & Junior
