“MY Strong Girls fulfilled both my need for physical activity and my need for calm.”    -Heather

From your Mat to Hers – Sponsor a Teen Yogi

We offer the MY Strong Girl course, a free eight-week mindfulness and yoga series for girls ages 14-18,
free of charge. We need your support to keep it that way. Our goal is to raise $15,000 to help teen girls manage stress and live their lives to the fullest.

Please consider sponsoring a teen yogi by giving $75, the minimum suggested donation, to support a girl’s enrollment. A donation of $150 will support a local girl for the duration of the course. You’ll also receive a note telling you how the girl benefited from your largesse.

The girls who have completed the programs, which recently expanded to include students who attend the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School, are more confident, less anxious, and more focused in school. They’ve used their newfound yoga, journaling, and meditation skills to improve their academic and athletic performance and attend the prom without freaking out.

So far, we’ve helped change the lives of more than 50 girls for the better. Your gift would allow a teenage girl to hit pause for an hour, and build tools for a lifetime. Please donate so that more girls can become strong and self-aware. Thank you in advance for your tax-deductible gift to The Yoga Institute.
