INTUITIVE LIVING: Self Defense for Women
An Empowering Workshop for ALL Women and Girls



Offered in Sylvan Lake, Alberta. A portion of the proceeds are donated to the Central Alberta Women's Emergency Shelter, in Red Deer, AB, to support its cause for providing a safe and positive environment for abused women and children.

For Women & Girls, Ages 12+


We live in a dangerous world. In fact, "Alberta has the highest rate of reported family violence in Canada and leads the Country in domestic assault, homicide-suicide, and stalking" (Stats Canada). But what makes our world even more dangerous is that in many instances, our thoughts, actions and behaviors are on "Autopilot", making us more vulnerable to dangerous situations.

The goal of "Intuitive Living: Self Defense for Women" is to empower participants with the resources necessary to recognize and escape from potentially dangerous situations. A large part of this is providing participants with self-defense tactics that develop awareness and intuition so that women can avoid dangerous situations before they even happen. In other words, participants receive self-defense training that focuses on the mind, body and spirit.

INTUITIVE LIVING: Self Defense for Women truly exemplifies a non-combative model towards women’s safety and personal protection. Participants are enabled to avoid dangerous situations, becoming more aware in all situations by learning:

  • assertiveness
  • confidence, and
  • self-worth

The workshop creates a constructive environment of feedback and support. This is crucial in promoting and restoring women’s self-esteem and confidence. The 1/2 day workshop includes:

  • Prevention strategies for increasing your awareness and self-confidence to prevent danger
  • Learn about the true facts of violence against women & the profile of a victim and an attacker.
  • Self defense for street encounters, date rape, and abusive relationships.
  • Ground techniques & standing defenses to counter chokes & grabs.
  • Full contact scenarios with padded male aggressor
  • Startling yet accurate facts of violence against women,
  • Insight and realization that by focusing solely on the “stranger-danger” mentality, women only gain a false sense of personal safety and security
