Personal Safety for Women Workshop
with Carey Rockland & Sharon Sanghera

Saturday, March 17th
$75 in advance, $85 at the door.

Develop your inner strength and learn to move well and maintain personal safety in an urban environment. Our inner world has everything to do with the ways we respond to the events in our lives. On the rare occasion where physical safe-guarding becomes necessary, a personal foundation and plan is helpful. Join Wellness Coach Sharon Sanghera and fitness trainer Carey Rockland for an afternoon dedicated to Women’s Self Preservation.

Our course teaches methods for maintaining personal space, boundaries, and self-awareness including incident
prevention and de-escalization. We train the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of ourselves to be prepared for any
external scenario. We also teach self-defense basics. The participants in our program learn to move in reality-based physical scenarios.

All of the movement training, partner training and contact is optional. We create a safe space to learn this material.
