Boxing Project for Survivors of Violence
*The next SYL session will run Sunday, January 30th – Sunday, March 13th.
** SYL and the Toronto Newsgirls Boxing Club are proud to be one of the partners working with the 519′s program Healthy Transactions, a new active healthy living program just for trans youth. For more info on Healthy Transactions click here: Healthy Transactions
Shape Your Life (SYL) provides women and trans survivors of violence with an opportunity to participate in a recreational boxing program. Physical exercise, reducing social isolation, exploring healthy aggression and expressing anger in a safe place can help survivors heal from violence and regain control over their lives. Shape Your Life aims to empower survivors by building self esteem and community through the sport of boxing.
SYL is about feeling strong, having fun and trying something new! The SYL boxing classes are designed for beginners and are held at the Toronto Newsgirls Boxing Club once a week. Each class is two hours long.
This is a free program. Equipment, TTC and free snacks are provided.
