Addressing Teen Anxiety Holistically

Dec 02, 2016 09:08PM

Cynthia Beers, owner of Red Head Yoga, in Mechanicsburg, is offering a six-week class, Mindful Yoga for Teen Anxiety, that focuses solely on teens from 12 to 19. “One in six teens has anxiety-type issues which include high-functioning autism,” says Beers. She developed the program with noted local psychologist Dr. Thomas Fink.

Teens are pressured by grades, sports, social media, dating and home life. The class meets once a week to provide the tools and coping skills necessary for them to handle situations in a holistic way without the use of prescription medication. The program uses yoga philosophy and practice, Emotional Freedom Technique and meditation.
