Empowered Fit is an initiative with End Rape Culture, another 501(c)(3) charity, that aims to combine self-defense and yoga in a one-of-a-kind experience that will leave participants feeling safe, secure, and strong in their own bodies. Classes will be held monthly throughout the city of Miami.

Our first class was held at OM Movement in Coconut Grove. The self-defense portion of the class was led by Steven B. Vazquez and Bryan Wither while the yoga portion of the class was led by Empowered Through Fitness founder Stephanie Diaz. Over the course of 60-minutes, students learned three different self-defense techniques that aided them in feeling strong in their bodies and left them feeling in awe of what the body could do to protect itself. After the self-defense class, the students participated in a 30-minute community-building yoga session.
