Intended to inspire a healthy lifestyle and strengthen the body, mind and spirit, this series kicks off Still & Moving Center’s teen wellness program.
Like the name Still & Moving Center, part of the time we’ll be still – talking together about important stuff. And part of the time we’ll be moving – doing cool movement practices like self-defense, zen archery, hip hop, yoga, rock fit n’ kick or ribbon dance.
These sessions are uniquely crafted to enhance leadership, self-confidence, goal-setting, maintaining safe space, and of course, teen health.
As teenagers, we go through many changes. Our body is on its way to becoming its adult size. We may notice that we can’t fit into our old shoes or that our jeans are now 2 inches too short or too tight. Along with these changes, we are probably becoming more independent and making more of our own choices. Some of the biggest choices we face are about our health.
Healthy habits, including eating a healthy diet and being physically active, can help us feel good, look good, and do our best in school, work, or sports. They might also prevent unnecessary problems, such as depression, diabetes, amenorrhea, failure to add bone density, eating disorders, etc. All these can be avoided with good choices in the way we live. Healthy teens are happy teens.
In 2016 Still & Moving is celebrating it role as a healing center. What a fantastic way this Teens Moving for Health series is to bring something new and meaningful to our community!
