Dear Friends,

International Women's Day Blessings.  I've been dedicated to working with women for the last 15 years and it is our great honor to offer you our Doula program connected with Shakti Sadhana.  See other wonderful offerings below, including this weekend's yoga trance dance, Shakti Fest and more.

Upcoming Classes at Exhale, Venice!


Saturday March 9th, 4:00-5:45pm 

Tuesday March 12th, 4:15-5:45pm and 6:00-7:30pm

We will be collecting bras for Free The Girls at Exhale Center for Sacred Movement in Venice, CA until March 10th.

ABOUT Free the Girls
By partnering with safe houses and after-care facilities, we provide an opportunity for women rescued from sex trafficking to earn a living selling second-hand clothing while going to school, getting healthy, and caring for their families.  Selling clothes allows them to work as much or as little as their school schedule permits.  

Let’s face it, ladies: the back of your underwear drawer is most likely a graveyard of bras you don’t wear anymore or that never fit right in the first place. By contrast, second-hand clothing is a profitable market in many countries around the world. Bras are sought after items. Some of the girls in our program are making 5x the minimum wage in their community by selling bras! And even better, bras provide an opportunity for these women to work with other women, since they have a history of being abused and used by men.
