Teen Yoga for Yoga Therapists: Book Launch
29 September 2018, 18:00–20:00
£10 (£3 redeemable against the price of the book)
We are delighted to invite you to the official book launch of Teen Yoga for Yoga Therapists: A Guide to Development, Mental Health and Working with Common Teen Issues written by expert Charlotta Martinus.
To celebrate the launch, Charlotta will be leading a special teen yoga class for you and your teen. The class will include some partner fun with specifically designed breathing exercises and postures to prepare your teen for the academic year ahead and to help and support them with common issues and obstacles.
The UK’s youngest fully qualified yoga teacher, Robin Watkins – founder of Bliss, will be assisting. Robin was 16 when she completed her training with Charlotta and has first-hand experience of not only teaching teens but being one herself! Now 18, Robin is keen to share her experience of how yoga has helped her and how it is helping other teenagers.
After the class, we will open up the floor for Q&A and book signing as we treat you to some teas and nibbles. All are welcome to this event. Teens can come on their own or with an adult, and adults are also welcome on their own.
Yogacampus is delighted to host this book launch and support expert Charlotta Martinus who is advisor to the Government on yoga in schools.
About the book:
Teen Yoga for Yoga Therapists is a thorough and comprehensive book, bringing all aspects of yoga to the fore to tackle common teen issues. It has both theoretical, research based reflections as well as practical applications of yoga. As part of the launch, your ticket entry entitles you to £3 off the full price of the book.
An important contribution at an important time… Martinus explores the unique challenges faced by teens and how yoga offers a valuable “well-being toolbox to live an optimal life”. Covering essential topics from depression to addiction, this book offers simple, practical, tried-and tested techniques. For those teaching teens, this is essential reading.
—Simon Haas, teacher of yoga philosophy and author of The Book of Dharma and Yoga and the Dark Night of the Soul—
Charlotta Martinus brings out the challenges and opportunities facing teenagers today and shows how yoga is a solution and a way to optimize their potential. In a rapidly changing world teenagers everywhere are vulnerable, yet receptive to practices like yoga; this is highlighted with interesting anecdotes, information, and empathy for the problems faced by young people. The book skillfully blends theory and practice, and all yoga therapists, teachers and parents would benefit from reading it.—Shirley Telles, MBBS, PhD (Neurophysiology), Director, Pantanjali Research Foundation, India—
Recent research documents that yoga can promote mental health and well-being. Adolescence can be a rather stressful period of life, so yoga is likely to be especially relevant for teens. Charlotta Martinus is a world-leading expert on yoga for teens, and this book targets yoga teachers, yoga therapists, teenagers and parents. I expect that they will welcome this book as much as I do.
—Ingunn Hagen, Professor, Department of Psychology, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)—
As an educator, mental health professional and yoga therapist working with teens, this is the book that so many of us have been waiting for. Charlotta brings forth a well-balanced mixture of the evidence base, experience and opportunity for personal engagement and reflections on the work. She offers many practices and exercises to share with young people and to deepen our own practice in an accessible and informative way.
—Dr Lucy Arnsby-Wilson, Clinical Psychologist, Director and Founder of The Maya Project—
All welcome. Teens can come on their own or with an adult, and adults are also welcome on their own.
