Summer Soul Yoga Meditations for Teens

Bambina nel mezzo di un campoThe long days of summer are perfect for charging our batteries with appreciation and contemplating how we shine our lights.

1. Charge Your Batteries~ Right in the center of your torso, above the belly button and below the ribs, lives your very own Sun, called the Solar Plexus. When charged and vital, this part of your body feels strong, confident and able. When your batteries get low, you may start to feel tired and/or insecure.

Take time to charge up for summer today with an easy Yoga exercise. Lay on your back (outside under the sun if possible). Enjoy 10 deep breaths into your Solar Plexus. Breathing in, imagine golden light filling your center. Breathing out, firm your belly.

Slide your hands under your hips to protect your lower back. Gently press your shoulders and the back of your head into the Earth. On an inhale, lift your legs off the floor such that the soles of your feet face the sky. As you exhale, lower your legs until your heels almost touch the Earth. Don’t strain during the leg raises. Bend your knees if you need to. After 10 -15 repetitions, rest for a few minutes. Repeat as you wish. Feel your center strengthening and glowing with vitality!

2. Practice Appreciation~ Spend a few minutes sitting still today, quietly acknowledging the many gifts of life the Sun gives every single day. Feel the blessings of light, warmth, food. Imagine the planet in relationship with the Sun. See the interconnection. Feel your place in the great mysterious whole!

3. Shine Your Light~ Consider all of the people in your life you wish to share your light with. Think about anyone in your life that may need a little extra light for healing right now. Imagine the powerful, shining golden light from your own Sun can radiate all the way to the people you are thinking about. See them light up as they receive your light.

Put it all together now. Sit still for a few minutes and Be the Sun! As you inhale, feel the gifts of light. As you exhale, share your light.

*Remember to always charge your own batteries first before sharing with others. Sometimes, if we give more energy than we receive, we can start to feel depleted. Also, choose wisely who you will share your light with.

kayla^After reading several reviews saying to buy 2 sizes larger than you usually wear and being told “if your bigger than a small you won’t fit this shirt…” I found a size chart for jr sizes.Small: chest 30-32″ and waist: 25-26″ medium: chest 32-34″ and waist: 27-28″large: 36-38″ and waist: 30-32″extra large: chest 40-42″ waist: 33-35″2X large: chest 44-46 and waist 36-38″I usually wear a women’s large and I bought an XL and it fits like what I usually wear. I would recommend buying 1 size larger than usual. Sleeves are a little long for my liking. Graffic will most likely crack however that’s to be expected. Overall I love this shirt.~5|Dr A.^Based on the reviews&#44 I expected this to fit smaller than it did. I found it true to size for juniors. This version of the tee is 90% cotton&#44 10% polyester (and therefore unlikely to shrink). The fabric is light to medium weight&#44 not see-through&#44 and has stretch.Flat Measurements:Size small: 16″ bust&#44 14.5″ waist&#44 25″ long. (First two pictures)Size medium: 17″ bust&#44 15.5″ waist&#44 24″ long. (Second two pictures)I’m a misses 0-2 XS 34B and the small fit well without being tight.~5|Amazon Customer^Printed color is off. The cat is white and the image is pixelated.~3|Rhiannon^Overall I really like this shirt. I got a size medium and the only reason I would say it’s ‘somewhat small’ is because it is a junior’s size shirt. I was really pleased with this shirt&#44 it looked exactly as pictured when I ordered it. I am 5’5″ and 117 pounds and I ordered a medium. It has a slim and fitted look on me&#44 although I might order a large in the future just to have a little more room. I will say I have not washed this shirt yet&#44 and I do not plan to put it through the dryer because I don’t want it to shrink. So excited to wear my new go-to shirt!~5|Ashley^The shirt is super cute and a nice&#44 soft material. I did follow the advice of several other reviewers that suggested buying a size larger (or two) than what you normally wear. I bought this in XL for my sister who normally wears a medium. It seemed a little bigger than I anticipated. I would suggest only going up ONE size larger than you would normally wear&#44 unless you want it to have a little extra space because this is definitely a more fitted t-shirt design. But based on the reviews and since I feel like you can get away with a shirt being a bit big rather than it being too small&#44 I would definitely suggest buying larger than you normally would. This is probably because it is in “junior” sizes and not in adult/women’s sizes. But overall&#44 awesome shirt! My sister (and I) love all things Pusheen&#44 and this shirt cracked her up when she opened it on her birthday (and she just turned 21!). Pusheen is for all ages!~5|Annabelle Lee^While I loved the shirt&#44 it is cute and well made&#44 I had to return it because it was way too big. To explain further&#44 I read several reviews which stated that it ran very small and I needed to size up at least 1 and maybe 2 sizes&#44 so following this advice and not liking tight fitting t-shirts I sized up 2 sizes and when it arrived I was very surprised to find that it was gigantic. So my advice is yes buy this cute shirt but order your normal size !~4|Sara^it is super cute and comfy but…came with a hole under the armpit.=( so sad!~3|Carmen^I ordered this for my daughter&#44 she loves it! Based on some of the reviews I ordered a size up&#44 but the shirt we received appears to be size accurate. I’m sure my daughter will get plenty of use out of it.~5|RAREBIRD^Just love this adorable t-shirt! Fits just right–I like the fit to be snug. So&#44 yes&#44 I have to say this item is true as to sizing&#44 which is what I expected since I do read all or most reviews of merchandise onine. Extra small should be extra small! I’ve encountered “medium” sized clothing that’s more like an extra large&#44 “smalls” that are way too large. Thank you for the prompt service and shipping. Again&#44 appreciate the accurate sizing.~5|DCchicago^I would give this zero stars if I could. Women’s sizes would fit 1st grader and fabric is cheap&#44 shiny polyester circa 1974. Just terrible quality. Already contacted seller once and&#44 after several days&#44 got a truly nonsensical response and still no refund/return. Stupidly bought two of these–total waste of money.~3|
