Denver Self-Defense Classes

Girls Fight Back started in Hoboken, New Jersey in 2001 at a place called The Bar at 10th and Willow. Why a bar, you ask? Because the manager – a guy named Mario – had 7 sisters, believed in what I was doing and gave me the space for free. After getting certified by the American Women’s Self Defense Association as an instructor, I began holding weekend classes in the bar, and women all over the tri-state area attended. I remember banging on Mario’s apartment door at 10 am, so he’d let me into the bar to start class. (He went to bed at 6 am on weekends, so he probably cursed my name a lot those mornings…)

Today I’m excited to announce a new partnership with Denver’s coolest yoga hot spot, Spiral Yoga & Wellness. Starting November 21st, I will be teaching a 2-hour women’s self-defense workshop at Spiral once a month. (Normally the workshops will take place on the 2nd Saturday of each month – except for the first one in November, which is the 3rd Saturday.) Then in January 2010 I’ll start teaching an ongoing self-defense class every Wednesday night from 7 – 8:30 pm. (Whoop-Ass Wednesdays) These weekly classes are structured like yoga. Pay as you go, $15 per class, come every week or just once a month…no contracts, so you decide! (Note: You must attend one of our 2-hour workshops as a pre-requisite before starting weekly classes with me in January. This way, all students will begin the classes with an understanding of verbal self-defense, prevention strategies and other basic fundamentals. If you can’t make the Nov. 21 workshop, be sure to attend the one on December 12.)

Teaching again is very exciting for me. For the past few years I’ve been mostly speaking, writing and traveling. My average crowd size tends to be in the hundreds, sometimes even more than a thousand. But getting back to the basics, teaching a small group of spirited women and girls…well, I find this invigorating. I hope you’ll join me…please spread the word. Space is limited! Here are details for the first workshop:

Saturday, Nov. 21, 2009
2:00 – 4:00 pm
@ Spiral Yoga & Wellness
4106 Tejon Street
Denver, CO 80211
$20 per person (women/girls ages 12 and up)

  1. Losing Fat

    I am new to blogging and getting information out there. Your post here is very informative and gives me more insight as to creating an impact when commenting- Please keep up your posts and I will continue to read them.

  2. Tanatchaya

    This download is iitcednal to Swami J’s CD of the same name. You’ll find many other reviews of this recording in the CD section. I’ve found this recording to be helpful in guiding me to the simple experience of what I believe to be authentic or traditional yoga nidra. The instructions are simple and clear, without unnecessary frills (e.g. music) or gimmicks (e.g., magical, unscientific terminology). And I find myself trusting the seemingly authentic, greed-and-manipulation-and fraud-free nature of the speaker. This recording, like much of the material on SwamiJ’s website, seems just right to me. (And no, I don’t know Swami J, nor am I affiliated with him in any way.) Prior to using this recording, I did not know that this type of consciousness was called yoga nidra or conscious deep sleep, nor did I consciously experience yoga nidra frequently. I thought of this experience, and the practices leading to yoga nidra, as falling awake, somewhat consistent with John Kabat Zinn’s terminology (MBSR body scans ). And it also seems akin to the trance one might experience under hypnosis, but it is certainly different. I find that as I go through the preliminary practices, it is sometimes easy to drift into dreaming and unconscious sleep. This is not a criticism of the recording. I’m saying this because this experience of drifting and dreaming makes me less skeptical than I might otherwise be about the claim that the practice is actually taking practitioners from Waking to Deep Sleep by going, consciously, through the Dreaming). In my experience, especially using this recording, yoga nidra is formless in the sense that the perception of the body and external space dissolves and is not present in the mind’s (or whatever’s) eye. As I’ve moved toward yoga nidra, it is as if the transient mental processes associated with body and thinking cease to appear in consciousness, and cease to have any sense of location. It is as if sustained, slow-moving, relatively unchanging aspects of consciousness remain. And in this type of consciousness (or perhaps at the edge of this type of consciousness, I find that patterns of thought and desire enter consciousness slowly, one at a time, minus the sort of strength that they might have during waking consciousness. This is a long way of saying that I’ve found this recording very helpful so far, and I plan to use it extensively in the future.
