Healthy Growth Yoga
Project Status: On going
Last Updated: 29 Feb 2024
About this Project:
The Andiappan Yoga Community (AYC) is delighted to provide elementary yoga classes for a group of adolescents between 10 to 18 years old. These youth are currently under the supervision of the Juvenile Protection Section. By introducing the therapeutic benefits and rehabilitative power of yoga through the sessions, we hope all participants can find relief from cravings, stress and other negative emotions. In fact, yoga and meditation are useful alternatives that can help at-risk youths to cope with their daily struggles and mental pressure. AYC hopes to bring yoga as a form of complementary care and support for young people within correctional environments – such that they are all encouraged and empowered to live a better life and flourish in the future.
Our yoga classes will be part of many service and activities offered to at-risk adolescents by the Juvenile Protection Section of Kowloon West. The Office hopes to engage them in a wide variety of activities that are beneficial to both their physical and mental health, it also seeks to support youngsters through promoting a positive living attitude and by offering different treatment programmes for relapse prevention.

AYC很高興為一群 10 至 18 歲的青少年提供初級瑜伽課程。 這些青少年目前在未成年人保護科的監督下。 通過在課程中介紹瑜伽的治療益處和修復能力，我們希望所有參與者都能從渴望、壓力和其他負面情緒中找到解脫。 事實上，瑜伽和冥想是有用的替代方法，可以幫助處於危險中的年輕人應對他們日常的掙扎和精神壓力。 AYC 希望透過瑜伽形式作為對懲教環境中的年輕人給予關懷和支持—這樣他們就會受到鼓勵並有能力過上更好的生活和發展。
