What is Shape Your Life (SYL)? — SYL provides women and trans survivors of violence with an opportunity to participate in a recreational boxing program. SYL is about feeling strong, having fun and trying something new! Physical exercise, reducing social isolation, exploring healthy aggression and expressing anger in a safe place can help survivors heal from violence and regain control over their lives. The SYL boxing classes are designed for beginners and are held at the Toronto Newsgirls Boxing Club once a week. Each class is two hours long.
This is a free program. Equipment, TTC and free snacks are provided.
The current SYL session is for Front Line Workers who currently support survivors of violence: Saturdays, 2:30-4:30 pm. from July 9th to July 30, 2016.
If you are interested in participating or have any questions, please contact Savoy at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 416.480.2058. Check out what SYL participants have to say about the program by clicking on “Your Words: SYL Participants Talk”.
