Welcoming girls 14 years of age and above (girls 13 years or younger will be required to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian), an afternoon of peace, gentle yoga, mindfulness and peer support has been designed to help empower, educate and renew the minds and spirits of our urban girls.
“… a powerful mission of social responsibility, love and compassion …”
“Evolution of Love was built on a powerful mission of social responsibility, love and compassion,” said visionary fashion designer and the organization’s founder, Aisha McShaw. “Far too often, minority girls in disenfranchised communities are unjustly overlooked because of their zip code”, McShaw explained. “We also know the impact of childhood trauma on young individuals, and it is our unwavering goal to end it. Our dedication lies in empowering these young women to break free from limitations, dream bigger, recognize their inherent worth, feel fearless, and become unstoppable forces for positive change in their lives and communities,” she added, McShaw also highlights the critical importance of cultivating a nurturing and empowering environment where girls connect, thrive, and unleash their unbreakable spirit. “Through their transformative journey, they will rise as shining examples, inspiring others and forging a future marked by resilience, love, and limited possibilities,” McShaw concluded.
“… connect mind, body, and soul …”
Evolution of Love co-founder, Michelle Ganpat, an expert registered yoga teacher and certified kids’ yoga and meditation instructor, will guide participants through an immersive experience to help connect mind, body, and soul while helping to manage stress or negative emotions. A true yogi who has worked with hundreds of young adults suffering from personal or family trauma, the practice has been specially crafted for inclusiveness for all skill levels.
Evolution of Love is committed to offering its ‘Journey of Success’ through educational and personal development programs for girls throughout the year.
