True Yoga is hosting a wonderful camp program for teenage girls this summer.It was designed by Heather Hawthorne, a homeopath living here in Alberta.In her own words:

"In the spring of 2011, overwhelmed by the number of women in my practice whose present-day health difficulties had their roots in the time around when they were twelve years old, I made the decision to start a program for teen girls. I want to reach out to teen girls at a pivotal time in their lives, and offer opportunities for improved self-esteem and health that will in turn impact their families, both present and future. The mission of the I AM Girls program is " To connect girls with their truth, power, and purpose ". By introducing young teens to leadership and empowerment messages, wholistic health including homeopathy, and yoga, I believe we can interrupt processes that lead to years of pain and suffering."

Shannon Viens is the facilitator.She is a certified yoga teacher and homeschooling mom of 3 and has been trained in the I Am Girls program. Heather brings her background in wholistic health, together with her experience in youth programming, and a passion for empowering people, to offer this dynamic program for girls.
