Ignite: Girls on Purpose

Posted on 15 May 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

To stoke the fire that resides within. We hope to guide teen girls to their own purpose by igniting the passion within. This program leads girls to first get in touch with their passion and then to put it into action.

The Ignite workshop will incorporate yoga as a tool to ignite and empower girls to live on purpose. We will learn alignment and the foundations of the physical practice of yoga, also known as asana, while focusing one of the following themes:
• Mind-body connection—Self regulation (focus on breath)
• Self-love—self-esteem, body image (ahimsa)
• Voice—Learning to speak your truth (Satya)
• Empowerment–Finding our strength
• Collaboration—importance of community
• Service/Action—Putting passion into action. (Seva)

Students will come away from this workshop with increased awareness of themselves and others and will be able to live with more compassion and confidence. Through the tools learned on the mat, students will learn how to self-regulate their emotions, increase focus and reduce everyday stresses. But, most importantly they will be empowered to make real change in their community.
