Yoga Courses for Kids and Teenagers

Yoga is not a religion but an ancient and highly modern discipline recognized as one of the most comprehensive approaches for the health of the body, mind, and self-awareness. It is a science that helps individuals find a state of psychophysical harmony, improve balance, postural alignment, and flexibility.

The practice of Yoga is not only suitable for adults but also for kids and teenagers, as it allows them to move, have fun, and bring numerous benefits to the body and spirit.

Yoga practices designed for children and teenagers are entirely different from those created for adults, as children need more stimuli and often struggle to maintain concentration. These tailored practices for them often include games, more active exercises, age-appropriate asanas, and are integrated with music, singing, dance, and storytelling.

Yoga for Children and Teens by Sara Della Torre

When choosing a Yoga course for children and teenagers, it is important to rely on professional Yoga instructors with proven experience, capable of engaging the little ones through involvement and practicing asanas in a slow and guided manner.

Sara Della Torre, from the Holismos center in Varese, is a qualified Yoga Operator for children and schools. She aims to make techniques, methodologies, experiences, feelings, and intuitions available to children and teenagers for the promotion of their psychophysical well-being. Sara Della Torre is involved in bringing Yoga to both public and private schools, thanks to the agreement protocol active since 1998 for the teaching of yoga in schools, from preschool to high school, signed by the FIY (Italian Yoga Federation) and the Ministry of Public Education (MIUR).

The Yoga practices for children and teenagers offered by Holismos are based on three fundamental aspects:


The regular practice of mindful movement, relaxation, and self-control channels energy towards the subtler layers, helping children and teenagers reach infinite potentials.

a sense of love and respect for animals, plants, and the environment, our great universal heritage.

Through play, movement, breathing exercises, and relaxation, Sara Della Torre stimulates children and teenagers in various ways, helping them discover their infinite potential at the physical, mental, emotional, and “spiritual” levels.
