Inspired by the BoxUnion movement, BE is a fiercely fired-up four-week SUNDAY workshop dedicated to empowering girls age 10-12 to identify, define and strengthen their inner super hero.
helping girls be their own super (her)o
At a time for girls that can often feel over-stimulating and overwhelming, BE brings together the unique mind/body benefits of boxing, meditation, education and visualization. The workshop covers subjects spanning from movement and self-defense to finding their voice, following their dreams and being the STAR of their own life.
Designed and taught by women, BE teaches girls to work together as a wonder team and take ownership of their unique super powers that make them who they are.
SUNDAY, 2/25: BE REAL, 3-4:30 PM
Dolly Klock, MD
Founder of Adolessons
From a very early age, girls are bombarded with images and messages about beauty and feminine norms. This interactive class allows girls to take a critical look at some of the products, ads, and digital tricks that perpetuate those messages. Using developmentally appropriate slides and video clips as inspiration, the girls will engage in conversation and activities about what qualities they believe REAL girls possess. Then we’ll put on our boxing gloves and take our reinvigorated girl power on the bag for a 30 min Punch Party with Deja Riley.
SUNDAY, 3/4: be powerful, 3-4:30 PM
