Derby Dolls to Offer Women’s Wellness Clinic

I’m not really sure what the “Mayor’s Day of Service” is, but I do know that it somehow relates to the Derby Dolls hosting an awesome sounding Women’s Wellness Clinic here in Hi-Fi:

LA Derby Dolls, with the City of Los Angeles Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), will be offering a Free Women’s Wellness Clinic July 19th, 8am – 12 Noon, for the women of the community.

The 45-minute workshops will include: a self-defense workshop taught by the renowned Nelson Nio, founder of SHIELD Women’s Self-Defense System; a Tai Chi made easy lesson by Derby Doll and certified Tai Chi instructor, Sydney Bennett; healthy eating on the go nutrition advice from Alyson Weeces and Dr. Jeffrey Palmer; a workshop to discuss the effect media has on women’s body image and self-esteem; a yoga tutorial; and a “Staying Fit with Exercise” instructions to provide low cost and convenient fitness tips, including aerobics and “punkrope” lessons.

You need to email [email protected] to sign up, and given that this is going down tomorrow I think you probably need to do so soon. Full announcement after the jump

Tomorrow is the day! The Mayors Day of Service at the Doll Factory!
There are still some spots open for the Women’s Wellness Clinic.
Take a look below for all of the FREE classes you can take tomorrow.
We are also looking for volunteers to help clean up Temple Street!
Also, we are looking for English/Spanish translators, so if you are bilingual, and available tomorrow, get in touch with us!

And next week is the Jr. Derby Dolls Roller Derby Camp for Girls. If you know a girl between the ages of 9-17, tell them about roller derby summer camp!!! And get a sneak peek of what the camp has to offer tomorrow at the Dollhouse, during the Mayor’s Day of Service.
