What We Do

You Go Girl Yoga is an emerging NGO based in the New England area.  We are a group of change agents promoting gendered security for girls, women and mothers. Our programs offer the potential for girls, women and mothers to heal from traumatic events. We believe that when trauma is acknowledged and addressed, we can begin to rebuild self and spirit.

Our Vision

We believe that empowered women and girls are the key to ushering in the new generation of peaceful leaders. The You Go Girl Yoga™ “big picture” is women having the tools they need to fully participate in the global dialogue for social justice and shared prosperity. We are striving towards a world in which girls and women use their unique voices to transform suffering and hardship. This new paradigm allows women to create safe spaces for themselves, their families and their communities.

Our Programs

We consult with organizations who serve women and men, children and teens in capacities relating to trauma, addiction, sex trafficking, abuse, empowerment, leadership, poverty and more. 

We are in the process of developing programming for refugee girls, mothers and women living in the USA. Many female refugees have experienced violence that impacts their mental, physical and reproductive health. Some of the most severe issues facing female refugees today include: war rape; maternal mortality; forced sex selective abortion; sex trafficking; female infanticide. Our understanding of the severity of violence faced by female refugees, combined with lack of evidence informed programs has compelled us to develop a YGGY Teacher Training that empowers our teachers to deliver sensitive and informed programming.

 

adaptability

Each organization is different and requires a unique and thoughtful approach. We create curriculum designed to empower each population to fully embrace the existing programming.

research

Every program consists of measurable metrics to better improve programming, provide results, and track progress over time. 

values

We believe better teams consist of better people. We aim to embody 4 core values in all we do: integrity, humility, kindness, and com(passion)

Curriculum

We offer accessible, demographic-specific, online and in-person programs, workshops and projects that integrate with existing organizations and education programs.
