Stand In Your Power: Tween Girls Workshop
Who is this for?
A workshop for girls to teach them friendship dynamics and how to be a leader of kindness in their friend circles. All girls experience relationship dynamics that can be hurtful at times.
What is our goal?
To empower tweens to stand in their own power to manage covert aggression such as gossip, exclusion and other more passive forms of aggression commonly found in younger people who have not formed proper communication skills.
What will they do?
Tweens participating in the workshop will learn how to stand in their own power, connect, and have fun during this interactive workshop. The workshop will be a safe container to explore common dynamics that impact tween girls such as getting excluded, the effect of social media, mean girls, queen bees and friendship cliques. The participants will learn tools and have an opportunity to navigate these situations.

Stephanie Bersh has run several yoga workshops for tweens. In these workshops, the practice of yoga and breathwork has helped participants relax, become empowered, find connection, and share their feelings. Parents have provided feedback post workshop about how their tweens have used the breathing techniques to help them feel better in a stressful situation, how they have used the yoga poses to help them feel strong in their bodies, and how their tweens have felt more comfortable expressing scary feelings as they have learned other kids have the same feelings.
