WEST CHESTER, Pa. (CBS) – A Chester County yoga studio has a unique way of relieving some of the stress that’s facing today’s children.
PLAY Yoga has been in West Chester since May providing classes for adults, but they also cater to teens and pre-teens as a way to help them relieve some of the stress in their lives especially around the holidays.
Co-owner and yoga instructor Lisa Samuel says the children are an underserved market:
“We hope to get kids to realize how much fun it can be to drop their cell phones, drop their texting, walk into a room and have fun with each other and play and meditate,” she said. “And work their bodies in a way that will make them feel better.”
They’ve developed a special form of “Rhapsody Yoga” that’s done to a pop style of music including Katy Perry, Usher, and the Black Eyed Peas. PLAY — which stands for Peace, Love, Art, Yoga — will premiere their PLAY Lounge under-21 dance club this Saturday night, it’s another avenue for kids to have fun and stay safe.
