  • review rating 5  Taking a self-defence course was always on my bucket list. Empowerment Inc. gave me an experience that was unforgettable. While encouraging me to get out of my comfort zone, Shelley and Lynn made sure that I felt safe throughout the class. They even followed up with me afterwards to check-up on how I was doing, both physically and emotionally, and offered guidance and support. This course was about more than just self-defence for me, it was about feeling empowered, learning more about myself, and having faith in my abilities to protect myself. 5 stars!! I would recommend this course and company to anyone in a heartbeat!

  • review rating 5  As I have shifted my nutrition practice to one that's based on Health At Every Size® and body liberation, I've found myself becoming more sensitive to some of the daily micro-aggressions that have been normalized in our culture. Combined with the ways that I've been socialized as a woman, I definitely identified the need to "break the freeze". I attended the Break the Freeze workshop facilitated by Chief Empowerment Officer Shelley Hayes and learned *so* much! From identifying different freeze responses to practical communication and self-defense skills, I truly believe that these are lessons that all women need to be exposed to. Thanks, Shelley!

  • review rating 5  Shelley not only came to teach young teen girls about being strong and true to themselves, she enlightened them, gave them knowledge, insights and blew up old theories about girls, and women and how they are able to empower and encourage each other. This should be an absolute mandatory course for teen girls as they enter junior high to set them up for success. Imagine the possibilities... they are endless. The girls were so empowered with the self defense they learnt and the voices they found within themselves. I can’t say enough... truly brilliant!! I feel Empowerment Inc. made a profound difference today with these teen girls!

  • review rating 5  Fantastic experience!! Shelley and Lynn are an excellent team who inspire and equip participants with the tools needed to not only defend themselves should something bad happen but also to establish and define what personal boundaries are and why they are so important. I cannot say enough good things about this organization and how inspiring and incredibly important their work is!!

  • review rating 5  Attended a presentation by Empowerment Inc and loved it. The presenters were hilarious and brought a lot of laughter to the room despite the subject matter (self defense) being a not so funny thing. I also learned lots of great tools for being assertive and staying safe.
