Shieldmaiden 1

12-Weeks|  6:00pm – 7:30pm  |  Women 18+

Classes run weekly online through April 8th - June 24th and will include group discussions, mindfulness teachings, practical tools for managing fears & anxieties in your daily lives, guided meditations, basic sword & shield training, as well as self-defense/violence prevention techniques.  All aspects of this online programming are geared towards helping YOU continue to feel supported while strengthening you in mind, body, and spirit. Physical participation is optional and can accommodate women of all ages and physical capacities. 
To keep the intimate and connected nature of this course possible, this 12-week Shieldmaiden Training course is limited to 25 participants only.  Pre-Registration is required.
Our revolutionary Shieldmaiden Level I Training is a highly effective empowerment program that strengthens the minds, bodies, and spirits of women, in a safe and inclusive environment. 
We help women reclaim their personal power, allowing them to reconnect with an aspect of themselves often lost or forgotten, helping them to live with more passion and purpose throughout their lives.
Shieldmaiden Level I Training uses mindfulness exercises, group discussions, guided meditations, practical self-defense, and inspiration through the safe use of Viking swords and shields, to help strengthen and empower each woman not just physically, but mentally and emotionally as well.

Beth Sturdevant


WOTL Founder / Shieldmaiden Instructor / Self-Defence Faciliitator

WOTL Founder Beth Sturdevant found her Warrior spirit by facing various hardships while growing up and learning to tap into the power and courage she held inside her soul.  

Like many people, Beth's journey has been wrought with many life battles. Yet through it all—even the darkest of times—her inner warrior kept her alive and fighting for the best parts of herself and gave her strength to keep moving beyond everything that tried to pull her down.

​It was this inner Warrior Spirit that led Beth to follow her own path of intense healing and personal reconciliation, which inevitably brought her to pursue her soul’s passion and purpose in helping others embrace and enhance their warrior spirits, by founding Warriors of the Light.
