I Love Shelter Dogs
Our organization hopes to encourage more people to adopt not shop by sharing stories of successful shelter/rescue dog adoptions & useful info for a
healthy dog. We hope that by sharing success stories about shelter/rescue dogs we can encourage more people to adopt. Most people don’t know about the incredible animals waiting to be adopted at their local shelter and we want that to change. We’d also like our page and blog to become resources to help dog lovers keep healthy, happy and balanced pups.

In the Flow Studios ~ Body is a space to reconnect with
our bodies and revitalize our minds. We're dedicated to
providing cutting edge health and wellness information
by the foremost minds in Western Medicine,
Eastern Medicine as well as Alternative Medicine.  
What if many of the symptoms we attribute to age are
actually a result of lifestyle choices such as, diet, lack
of mobility, dehydration, not enough sleep, etc.?
Perhaps many of these problems can be lessened or
completely avoided if we were given the tools to take a
more active and better educated role in our health?

Kadan Martial Arts & Development Center 
Kadan Martial Arts was established in
1992 by Roland and Aurora Ferrer.
Kadan was originally known for its top
level Taekwondo Athletes, ranking in Jr.
& Sr. divisions in State, National,

sons at the studio, gave way to diversifying
their programs.  They became inspired to help people
of all ages and physical abilities enjoy the benefits of
the martial arts. They strive to make our environment a nurturing and positive place for everyday people to face their fears, overcome their challenges and walk the road to Black Belt. 

About Self-Actualization thru
Women's Empowerment
Women’s Empowerment est. in 1992, is a women’s 
self-defense program that views the mind, body, 
emotions and spirit as equally important components 
in personal growth and safety. Workshops have been 
taught at colleges, sororities, on local cable, health
care companies, women’s groups, city councils and
to battered women at the Maravilla Housing Project
in East L.A. and the ​Carmelitos Housing Project in
Long Beach. My Woman’s Empowerment program
