Reaching Teens Through Yoga with Charlotta Martinus (Chandrika)

Please share what you do in 10-15 words: I run a company called TeenYoga, which trains yoga teachers to work with teens in creative and inclusive ways, following the main principles of yoga.

Why do you do what you do? Because I have two teenage sons who I feel have been very misunderstood as have many other teens and I think yoga can help with issues that they are facing. I think many people are scared of teens and do not believe they can be helped. I believe yoga is a treasure to teach them the three Rs: relax, repair, and relate.

What are you currently fascinated by in your work? I have recently finished a two-year program in neuroscience and I specialized in the neuroscience of the brain, I am currently writing a book on this topic and including recent research in mindfulness for teens too.

How did you come to your path? Any aha moments or key teachers? When I was given a job in a school and the boys started hitting each other with yoga mats and the girls started texting during yoga, I knew there had to be a better method in working with them, the aha moment was the first time Yoga Nidra and my principles worked on them!

What book(s) are you currently reading? I am reading the Bhagavad Gita (always) and also just finished Dharma by Simon Haas.

Have you been to the Yoga Retreat before? I have not, though I look forward to it!
