The Teen Brain
with UGot Class, MSAD#1 Adult & Community Education
One of the most turbulent periods in brain development occurs during adolescence. The teen brain actually functions very differently from the adult brain. Certain kinds of thinking, such as decision-making, actually happen in different parts of the brain for adolescents and adults.
Understanding these complex changes can help calm the rough seas of the teen years, but also provide your teen with critical support and understanding that will promote better decision-making, better mental health, and better outcomes at school.
Come find out the important ways in which the teen brain is developing. Identify behaviors and attitudes that are influenced by these changes. Then learn to offer constructive strategies for establishing a better understanding of and communication with your amazing teen.

Mat Pilates is a gentle exercise that focuses on your core (trunk) muscles while also training your arms and legs. Mat Pilates is based on the original exercises Joseph Pilates developed to strengthen his own body as a very young man and then began teaching others. The Mat work came before any of the Pilates equipment he developed. It includes many exercises, can be practiced anywhere, and is easily modified for any age, body, or fitness level. Pilates is wonderful for every body of every age. Balance, strength, flexibility, focus, and your breath are all areas you may notice have changed with age. Pilates, at its core, works on improving all of those things. We meet virtually online. ALFA Pilates sends a zoom link one hour before the class begins. You will need a device to attend the class on, a mat, and enough space to move around. For information on more Pilates classes and private sessions visit alfapilates.com. Please pre-register, which allows for individuals to be contacted with link, payment options, and other information.
