January’s Teen Life Skills Series features nutrition and yoga

For the 3rd year, from January through April, the Auburn Public Library will offer a Teen Life Skills Series. Each month, the APL will focus on a different topic aimed specifically at teens!

In January, the series will take a look at Healthy Lifestyles. On Tuesday, January 5, from 3-4 pm, Healthy Androscoggin will stop by the Teen Space for a nutrition class entitled “Teaching 10 Tips.” During this interactive class, teens will explore the USDA’s My Plate and gain knowledge on how to choose and prepare healthy meals and beverages. Teens will play a game and prepare a healthy, delicious snack together. Handouts, prizes and free gifts will be provided. To plan accordingly, registration is requested.

And on January 12, 19, and 26, the Library is excited to welcome Tisha Bremner from Inner Light Yoga of Maine for a 3-part series, “An Introduction to Yoga for Teens.” Learn the poses, breath techniques, and mindful attention practices in a fun and easy way in this class designed to inspire teens to relieve stress and take really good care of themselves. Teens should wear comfortable clothing in which they can move easily. A healthy snack will be provided at the conclusion of each class. This program will take place in the Teen Space from 3:30-4:15, and registration is required.

Teens may register for these programs by clicking on the Events tab on Auburn Public Library’s website; once there scroll to the program. Or call the Library at 333-6640, ext. 4.
