To give women the best options to Empower, Strengthen and Protect themselves,
at their own pace
Each program has its purpose and is adapted to specific needs and wants. The knowledge from one program to the other is complementary--the difference is in how we teach, who we teach and the intensity level!
You can do one or all programs at the same time--the choice is yours!
For Women Survivors
...no matter our age, when or the type of violence we have lived, the goal is to learn how to take our power back, be confident in our day to day and learn physical and psychological self-defense skills in a space and with people that are sensitive to our realities and needs.
...who want a more intense training, learning more self-defense techniques within more scenarios, pushing our limits further and strengthening our bodies and our minds. This is for all women who want to train hard within a space for women.

is a fitness program meant for women who need to exercise but need a more gentle approach either for health reasons or just because the more conventional options do not suit them. We mindfully exercise, stretch, relax and alleviate pain through a mix of yoga, pilates, chi kong, biomechanics, mobility training as well as exercises and self-massage techniques that we have developed with those purposes in mind. Every aspect is adapted to the participants so they may find what works best for them.
These events provide the self-defense programs in a more condensed format (ex: 3 hours x 4 sundays), offer introductions to self-defense or work on specialty topics such as how to make your home safe, how to fight back in the dark or when bound, using a flashlight as self-defense gear, how to de-escalate situations, understanding the predator mindset and how to swtich from a prey to predator state, knife defense, etc... Workshops allow us to spend more time on a particular topic and are accessible to all, no previous experience required!
Although learning how to defend ourselves physically is important, our capacity to keep ourselves safe begins within, through our ability to confidently assert ourselves in all circumstances, define and enforce our limits respectfully yet firmly, be aware of potential dangers in order to avoid them, and to stand strong and be true to ourselves, always.
That is Self-Empowerment.
...the strength and confidence self-defense gives us is unparalled in the prevention of violence... and it can save your life and that of your loved ones. We know how physical self-defense can seem aggressive--most of us don't want to be violent at all and forcing ourselves into someone's space and hitting them back, even though justified, can go against everything we believe in... However,

Studies show that by fighting back
