Women's Self Defense and Empowerment 2018

This one-day course trains women in the necessary skills to deal with aggressive individuals, especially when in unfamiliar or uncomfortable locations. This includes traveling abroad or late at night in a parking garage/the street or on the college campus. Women will be given a dialog to use in the typical pre-attack phases of potential physical violence. Often this dialog and postural training will be enough to cause would-be attackers to go the other way. Women will be given extensive drills in simple but effective self-defense, including practicing their skills against a padded, male instructor in mock encounters while being coached by a women instructor. This course assumes that you have no previous training and it will be adjusted to the participant’s fitness level. Women get experience in finding their voice and grounding themselves in their core strength. This course offers life skills that will help women stand their ground in difficult situation at work, in relationships and wherever it’s necessary.

Women’s self-defense and Empowerment is a life changing experience even if you never have to use the physical self-defense skills.

Strengthening the Core
Jan

11:30 AM11:30

Strengthening the Core

In this on-going class you will practice poses to help free the hips and strengthen the abdomen and pelvic muscles. You will release blocked energy and feel more vital and alive. Other benefits of strengthening the core include improved digestion, elimination, relief from back pain and menstrual problems. 

The abdominal and pelvic muscles are often overstretched and weakened in pregnancy and childbirth. In this class you will learn time-tested yoga poses that will strengthen and tone these muscles, correct placement of pelvic organs, help to heal a diastasis (separation of the recti abdominal muscles), reduce incontinence and other problems you may be dealing with. 

A strong and flexible core is the foundation for the entire body. Our core – pelvis, abdomen and hips -  influences  spinal alignment from head to feet and the flow of our creative energy. We can feel tight and separated from the upper and lower parts of our body. This can be caused by stress, lack of integrated use and emotional holding patterns.

Come with an empty stomach and a willingness to go deep.

Thursdays 11:30-12:30  Begins January 4, 2018

The Labor Workshop

This is one of the best workshops you can take to prepare you for birth!    

You may wonder: What will labor be like? How will I cope with the pain? Will I be able to help her the way she needs me to?

The intention of this workshop is to help you connect with each other and feel more confident in your labor and birth through:

  • Breathing, massage, acupressure and relaxation techniques
  • Specific movements that can help your baby be in an optimal position for birth
  • And mother's positions that will help you cope with the pain of labor

You will also learn about the normal process of labor and how the environment affects labor. By the end of the class you both will feel inspired and confident to birth your baby!  You can take this class several times if you want, and at any stage of your pregnancy.

Fee: $60/couple or use 4 classes from your class card. Register here.

Preregistration required. Register early as class size is limited!

Private sessions are available by appointment. Fee: $125/90 minute session per couple
