Mission Propelle
**Mission Propelle is one of the largest after school programs in the city! Check out their work in action here

Girl Power Yoga Club
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. Throughout class, girls  learn to apply leadership skills in their everyday lives as they receive situation-based mentorship from trained instructors. All girls receive digital downloads of the original storybooks each week!

Class runs every Wednesday from 3:15-4:15 starting 4/25 and ending 6/13. $128; Grades: KG to 5th-Girls ***NEW STUDENTS RECEIVE A SHIRT AND YOGA MAT***
