We are excited to welcome Margot Brinley, certified 200 RYT/Grounded Kids Yoga instructor & Licensed Clinical Social Worker to Wing Haven to facilitate the Guru Girls in the Garden Program.

The mission of Guru Girls is to teach girls how to tap into their inner Guru through a curriculum incorporating Mindfulness and Positive Psychology activities, and journaling all within the structure of a fun yoga program.

Participants will use yoga breathing, poses (individual, partner and group), and guided imagery to highlight the importance of the mind-body connection. “Lessons from the mat” are geared towards empowering the girls to make healthy life choices in the middle school years.

Set in various places throughout the gardens, participants will experience the beauty and peacefulness of Wing Haven. In the event of inclement weather, the program will take place indoors in the Willow Oak Room. Students will need to bring a yoga mat, water bottle and wear yoga appropriate clothing. For questions, please contact Margot.
