Sexual assault is something no one deserves to experience.
The Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre strives to help women who have been victims of sexual assault reclaim their lives through a variety of services.
Each Thursday this month, women are invited to take part in free yoga classes hosted by the ORCC.
Maggie Hou, fundraising and public communication coordinator for the centre, says women who suffer through sexual assault may take years to recover, and yoga is an activity that can help women heal both physically and mentally.
"Yoga is one way to help women who are survivors of sexual assault to establish physical, mental and spiritual integrity," Hou says. "We want to reach out to the Ottawa community so that more women are aware of our services."
The sessions are open to all female survivors, and women of all abilities are welcome. Space is limited, so those interested in participating should contact Meghan Simmons at 613-562-2334 x30.
Thursdays in July
