(Girls EmPOWERed through Movement and Stillness)


New emotions. Complex peer interaction. Changing bodies. Increased expectations. Information overload. Let’s face it--being a preteen (tween) girl these days is tough. In our GEMS group, we create a safe (and fun) space for girls ages 9-12 to connect their minds, bodies and hearts. Our GEMS group teaches girls that they are wonderfully created, and helps them develop age appropriate strategies for communication, cooperation, and coping in daily life. These skills emPOWER our GEMS to lead whole, integrated lives.


Did you know you were made for connection? In our weekly one hour class, we explore what it means to be a GEM in today’s world. Through yoga postures, breathing, games, storying, and maybe even an impromptu dance or two, you will build friendships for your heart, strength for your body, and joy for your soul. Each class includes a time of stillness and creative expression through journaling (you can write or draw) to integrate what we are learning.

Our next Summer GEMS group 4 week series is on Wednesdays starting July 11th. (CANCELED)
