"If you are looking to empower a special girl in your life, here is your chance to enhance her innate radiance and develop a relationship which supports her stepping into independence confidently and compassionately."
-Teagan Bruce, Author
If you are feeling like this "day and age" is harder on our youth then when we grew up, you may not be surprised to know that the average girl's self-esteem peaks at the age of 9 and slides down hill from there. Research shows our girls are faced with more complex problems today, which leaves them vulnerable to horrifying statistics such as depression, anxiety, and suicide.
Perhaps you remember struggling through adolescence and hopefully you had a mentor or a group to keep you grounded and connected to what really mattered. Radiant Girl is here to support both you and your daughter.

How we use wellness practices to empower
Radiant Girls to Shine from Within
Studies show that empowering girls through education and self-awareness is strongly linked to breaking down social barriers such as poverty and discrimination. Through self-discovery activities and self-love practices, Radiant Girls uncover their own uniqueness and celebrate what they have to offer the world. We discuss tough topics to bring awareness, build community, and teach conflict-management tools to cope with recurring issues. Radiant Girls become risk-takers when in a safe and supportive environment. They collaborate on projects that promotes critical-thinking, community service, and teamwork, further gaining confidence and skills.
Yoga builds confidence and awareness
In the ancient sanskrit language, “yoga” means “union”. The meaning behind this word is infinite, but in essence, yoga brings us all together through the physical and mental practice of mindful living. For most of our Radiant Girls, yoga is a new experience that is introduced in a fun yet powerful way by our certified yoga teachers. The achievable challenge of practicing yoga ignites their self-confidence as they grow stronger and more focused, as well as compassionately connects them to the group through Yogames and partner poses. As Radiant Girls practice yoga sequences and breathing exercises they explore their awareness of their bodies, minds, emotions, and surroundings. Research shows young adolescents practicing yoga will benefit from enhanced concentration and physical health, an improved ability to accept and express one’s feelings appropriately, and a deeper sense of empathy for others.
Mindfulness cultivates gratitude and strength
Our Radiant Girls "shine from within" as they experience social and emotional wellness. For most girls, transitioning from childhood is complicated and we use mindfulness as a powerful tool to empower girls to stay centered. Radiant Girls learn to identify the areas in their life where they need to seek more balance and and recognize their triggers. This awareness brings light to the power each girl has in deciding how the story of her life will be written. The mindfulness practice of bringing awareness to the present moment and making conscious decisions, not reactive outbursts, has proven to have great benefits for our girls. Recent research from top universities, such as UCLA and Harvard, show that practicing mindfulness increases academic performance and fights depression and anxiety. It also promotes positive social behavior and emotional regulation.
