Beer is Love Partner Highlight: The Girls Way of MissoulaJun 13, 2013 Comments (0)
The Girls Way is a nonprofit dedicated to providing a fun and safe place to promote healthy development for girls ages 9-18 through movement, exercise, and education. Started in March 2011 in Missoula, Montana to serve girls of all different economical statuses, the organization currently has about 300 members who participate in its fun shops, daily classes, summer camps, workshops and more!
Recently, The Girls Way opened Moksha Aerial Studio Collective to help raise funds for its programs. Moksha offers aerial based classes to both men and women, over the age of 18. Moksha’s moto is open your heart, challenge your body, free your mind. A movement and aerial collective; Moksha Aerial Studio classes embrace freedom through movement, flight, music, expression, love, and compassion. Its mission is to offer unique classes to the Missoula community, all while giving back to The Girls Way. Every penny that Moksha makes, over what we need to operate, goes directly back to The Girls Way and helps provide scholarships for under privileged girls.
The program often holds events at Moksha. Community involvement is one of the most important factors to aiding in its success. Missoula participates in an event called ‘First Friday’ where local businesses open their doors on the first Friday of each month to show case new and exciting happenings around town. The program often holds First Friday events and invites people to come explore what is offered at The Girls Way and Moksha. These events are always widely successful, mostly impart to our entertainment factor.
"When we offer beer and music, people flock to our space," explains Taylor Simon, managing director of Moksha Aerial Studio Collective. "Beer has always been a big part of the Missoula community and people are always so impressed with our events when we offer beer from Ninkasi."
We are proud to partner with The Girls Way and Moksha and look forward to seeing these programs develop!
