“Breathe in deeply to bring your mind home to your body”
-Thich Nhat Hanh
At Red Mountain Colorado, we help students relieve stress and improve their overall quality of life by treating the body, mind, and spirit with a holistic approach. Our teen yoga therapy is designed to break up the stress that is closely tied to a variety of illnesses.
Yoga is an ancient practice that can help your child achieve a higher sense of self-awareness and compassion by changing their outlook on their relationships and daily lives. Through practice, teens gain better insight into how to take control of their breathing and emotions, helping them foster healthier long-term coping skills.
Meditation and yoga are the pillars that support our mindfulness program at Red Mountain Colorado. The movement of yoga enables students to bring awareness to their bodies and set positive intentions within themselves. Yoga can allow them to accept, expand on and exceed their limitations, which is a crucial aspect of inner healing.

What Yoga Therapy is Like at Red Mountain Colorado
During their stay at our treatment center, your teen will participate in yoga therapy twice a week in the morning, before they go to school. Your teen will also occasionally have access to a third morning yoga session with an instructor.
Your teen will experience two types of yoga practice:
Yin Yoga takes a more relaxed approach and includes a lot of deep stretching to release tension in the deep tissues of the body. This type of yoga is perfect for all skills level, giving your teen a great place to start if they’ve never practiced yoga before.
Vinyasa Yoga is more of a traditional style of yoga. During these instructor-guided sessions, your teen will transition through different poses and movements, almost like in a dance. This type of yoga offers your teen a more intense exercise that will challenge them and leave them feeling refreshed and ready for the day ahead.
