{ABOUT US}

 

 

Mini Mermaid Running Club, est, 2009 is a unique running club for girls ranging in age from 5 - 15 years. We aim to live in a world where all girls have compassion for themselves, have the tools to stand up for themselves and others and feel confident to make balanced nutrition choices. We do this with thoughtful curriculum and female volunteers who are giving girls a chance to fall in love with running, moving their bodies and experiencing the satisfaction of crossing a finish line. Our goal is to provide all girls with strategies to combat feelings of insecurity and tools to build self-kindness, thus empowering them to make better choices in the future. (more)

 

{OUR METHOD}

 

 

During our six-week curriculum, in small groups of 10, we teach self-compassion through the lens of two characters, Mini Mermaid and Siren. They each represent the two voices we hear in the world and in our own hearts. Telling the difference between the two leads to clarity and mindfulness which leads to greater self-compassion and empathy. We teach the girls the value of exercise and moving their bodies regardless of their size, shape or ability. The workouts are not focused on being first or running fast, but rather on each girl finding HER OWN PACE so that they can run THEIR OWN RACE. (more)
