Initiate Launch Sequence!

Many factors contribute to the "Failure to Launch" syndrome afflicting so many young adults today. Often, teens experience a failure to launch from a misunderstanding about who they are, and what reality is. They've failed to be mindful of themselves and their surroundings. Unable to resolve the gap between their desired reality and the situation in which they find themselves, they may turn to destructive behaviors and become “stuck.” In many cases, yoga in conjunction with mindfulness training, helps curb addiction and negative decision-making, while also aiding in the facilitation of independence. 

Yoga Might Help

Yoga may be effective for the same reason that conventional athletic events can be helpful to young people: regular physical exercise hones the body, while sharpening the mind. But yoga offers certain opportunities unavailable on the playing field. For example, a "team" or "group" of people doing yoga exercises aren't competing against another "team" or "group". This allows for individualized development, attention, and extension. While yoga leaders push the group, there are no points or metrics to define advancement except for positive personal development physically and mentally. 

Yoga has become especially popular with young women today. Beyond being "trendy", its benefits are both internal and external. As the body starts to look stronger and healthier, the mind is stimulated emotionally as well, leading to an upward spiral of positivity. 

Yoga For Them

It is important to note that yoga need not be a spiritually centered mode of exercise. Technically, if you're doing "yoga" in the truest sense, you will align yourself with Eastern spirituality. But the exercises of yoga - breathing techniques and the physical/mental benefits that complement them do not dependent on Hindi spirituality thought. While many yoga instructors do share such approaches, the exercises themselves have positive health benefits that have nothing to do with any kind of religion.   

Estrange Addiction

Research has shown that yoga can help diminish addictionand at Red Mountain, we believe that young people experiencing failure to launch as a result of addiction are likely to benefit from these physical exercises. In this way, they can learn a proven physical and mental discipline that produces visible, satisfactory results. In the end, they can put that knowledge to work in the real world.
