emPOWER kids is more than a fitness program. We are dedicated to building strong bodies, minds and hearts. Our curriculum focuses on overall physical well-being, mindfulness, and social-emotional connections with peers.
We want every child to feel loved and welcome in class, free to be themselves. Our program respects every individual and encourages all participants to support peers in their personal growth. Instructors bring positive energy to class and use language that encourages a growth mindset.
While we love to get excited when kids learn new skills, we celebrate the real wins during class - kids showing empathy, making friends, overcoming fears, sharing how they feel, taking turns, cheering on classmates, expressing gratitude and all the little moments in between.
I started emPOWER kids in 2020, after the COVID-19 crisis changed our lives. Like so many others, I felt the call to action and wanted to give back to the community in a meaningful way. I recognized the need for children to have a truly safe space for them to grow into happy, healthy humans, with supportive adults guiding their development. A decade of coaching gymnastics taught me the importance of physical health, but I believe we need to prioritize mental health as well. Positive self-talk & growth mindset have been staples of my teaching for years, and I'm excited to introduce mindfulness with emPOWER kids. Join me on my mission to revolutionize fitness for kids!
