Self reliance, self esteem and self defense will all be taught during the upcoming Empower Wyoming workshops. They'll be held on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of next month.
The first will be on Oct. 14 in Sheridan at the Crossfit Center on East Grinnell Street and the second in Buffalo, on the 28,th at the Beutlers Building on Lobban Ave. The classes run from 6-9 evenings.
Organizers say class size is limited, so pre-registration is required. Participants must be 14 years old. The cost is $50, or half price for anyone who already has an Empower workshop under their belt.
Presenters say the goal of the workshop is to teach women personal safety skills so they can avoid ending up in a life-threatening situation.
