Mission Propelle Yoga for Girls
Mission Propelle empowers girls in elementary school to discover who they are, what they believe, and how to advocate for themselves. We accomplish this through an after-school program that combines yoga, reading, and mentoring. In each one-hour class, girls develop mindfulness, deep breathing techniques, and self-confidence as they practice yoga. They learn how to solve problems by reading original storybooks starring Dottie Tov, a relatable and age-aligned female protagonist.
The girls discuss the content of the book and how it relates to their own life.
** Girls will be given a yoga mat during their first session, to be used in subsequent sessions.
Grades: K-5th
Dates: 9 weeks; Thursdays, 9/20 – 11/15
