TELLING THE LIONESS' STORY

Black Women for Wellness is endeavoring to tell our own story and we need your help...

We have entered into an agreement with Southern California Library and Occidental College. Southern California Library will archive Black Women for Wellness history, our newsletters, postcards, invitations, posters, conference programs, voter guides, manifestos, data reports, our history collected over the last 18 years, since 1997.

WAYS YOU CAN HELP:

If you have BWW stuff - everything and anything - please bring it to our office at 4340 11th Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90008 so we can give it to the library.

We have a short window of time to work with. The students will present our work at Sisters @ Eight on April 8, 2016.

Call us at (323) 290-5955 for more information.

This excercise program is an integration of Yoga and Pilates. Yoga has a strong impact on the field of stress reduction, mind/body medicine, and energy medicine. Pilates has an emphasis on body alignment, injury prevention, stretching and strengthening and connecting the mind with the muscle. These exercises are gentle enough to be performed by pregnant, sophisticated enough to challenge the super fit and safe enough to be prescribed for rehabilitation.
