Youth Yoga & Wellbeing
Tuesday 23 February, 2021 - Tuesday 14 December, 2021
Anahata Yoga Health & Education Trust is delighted to announce its milestone collaboration with Creating Balance NZ and Golden Bay High School to bring the benefits of yoga and meditation to youth in our community.
AYHET is honoured to sponsor Youth Yoga & Wellbeing, a year-long programme initiated by Priyadhara of Creating Balance NZ and enthusiastically endorsed by Golden Bay High School. Our combined efforts aim to provide teenagers with empowering tools to help them build resilience, confidence, and to trust and express their unique and creative potential.
Weekly classes will create a space where they can learn ways to nourish their being; feel relaxed, good and healthy in their body; calm the mind, feel clear and focused; where they can explore techniques that develop emotional understanding and self-regulation — a well-rounded community initiative to support teenagers to thrive in their life.
Sannyasi Priyadhara first came to yoga in her youth and was eventually drawn to the teachings of the Satyananda-Bihar tradition at Anahata Yoga Retreat. A yearning to deepen her experience and understanding of yoga led her to live and receive training under the guidance of Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati at the Bihar School of Yoga in India for a period of her life. The opportunity to imbibe yoga not only as an integral science but as a way of life & culture was a life-changing experience which today inspires Priyadhara to work with people of all ages and walks of life who seek to connect with positivity, find balance in life and express true potential from within.
