GIRL POWER YOGA

Girl Power Yoga is an after-school program where elementary-age girls grow in confidence as they practice yoga, engage in storytime, and play games.



Girl Power Yoga is NOT about reinforcing gendered messages. Rather, it is about encouraging girls to embrace their truest selves, no matter how that manifests.

That’s why our program is grounded in yoga: a discipline that is neither competitive nor comparative. Yoga encourages mindfulness and self-acceptance.

We complement yoga with a weekly reading drawn from Mission Propelle’s curriculum of 100+ storybooks. Our books showcase a diversity of female leaders – introverts, extroverts, science lovers, unicorn enthusiasts, and beyond! Our stories also showcase a diversity of family structures and living situations, inviting girls to see differences as sources of strength and beauty.
