we empower girls through yoga & reading
Mission Propelle is an empowerment program for girls in grades K-5.
We travel to schools and deliver girl power yoga classes that emphasize literacy enrichment, self-acceptance, and friendship. We also offer summer camp, birthday parties, and children’s yoga teacher trainings endorsed by the Yoga Alliance.

Our Girl Power Yoga classes are typically offered as enrichment classes after school, although some schools bring us in as a P.E. alternative or social-emotional intervention. Learn More

THE PILLARS OF OUR PROGRAM
Yoga is a non-competitive physical discipline that fosters a healthy body image. As girls listen to their bodies and explore different postures, they learn to accept and celebrate the way they are made.
Our curriculum is composed of 100 original storybooks each featuring a female protagonist. After class, girls receive a download of the weekly e-book so that they can engage with our characters again and again.
After storytime and yoga, girls internalize the daily lesson through a team-building activity followed by discussion. This time of collaborative reflection allows girls to put the daily theme into practice.

SCHOOLS LOVE US
“[Mission Propelle] is an amazing program for our girls. We have seen the benefits of yoga with our students. There is a positive energy and excitement on “yoga days”. Our yoga students develop confidence in a safe and nurturing environment. We have been so pleased to offer MP to the girls at Norwood Park School.”
