Girl Power Workshops

Girl Power is an innovative self-empowerment program for 5th-8th grade girls emphasizing being comfortable in your own skin. Combining an hour of yoga with discussion, journal writing and art, we explore how to manage stress and delve into how the media, self-care, our feelings and our thoughts influence our choices. This program also teaches media literacy (how to think differently about the images that are put upon us as women and girls by the media).
Sign your daughter up for one or all three programs. Each two hour workshop will focus on a different topic and each yoga portion of the class will introduce new poses that connect with the day's theme.

Sunday, March 8, 3-5 pm What Self Care Really Means
Sunday, April 12, 3-5 pm How Our Feelings and Thoughts Influence Our Choices
Sunday, May 3, 3-5 pm Media Literacy- How the Media Wants Us to Feel Bad about Ourselves and What we Can do About It
