New Class Offering!
YIN YOGA
with Jennifer Cervantes, 200 RYT
Thursday Evenings 6-7:15pm
Beginning October 26th!


Restorative yogaYin Yoga enhances the natural range of motion in the connective tissues and joints through a slowed down and meditative asana practice. Like Hatha, or Yang Yoga, Yin fosters breath awareness and body-connection, but with fewer postures—depth over breadth. A regular Yin yoga practice can strengthen the flow of energy along the meridians to support the organs, immune system, and improve emotional well-being.
• Any and all levels are welcome.
• Postures are held for longer periods of time (3-5 minutes) and participants may experience a sense of deep release as our breath and balance help ground us.
***Financial scholarships available for all workshops.

Wednesday Dance Classes
with Samantha Alger
September-May

Classes will be Ballet/Jazz Combo (core foundation for all other dance disciplines) for 5 different age groups (CLICK HERE for Schedule info: times & each age group).

What to Expect: Arrive maybe 5-10 minutes early at most. Warm up + center section + across the floor + practice recital piece + cool down — “We’re moving the whole time!” 

Wear: Moveable, athletic clothing. By October, Miss Sam hopes to have all students wearing more “official” attire, as in leotards, tights & special shoes (which will all be available for purchase through her), as well as putting hair in a bun. Wearing this uniform allows Miss Sam to observe muscles and form better, which helps to minimize risks, and also encourages students to focus on what they’re doing, to get in a mindset to take the study seriously. 

Towards the end of next May, Miss Sam plans to organize a recital in the NCS auditorium, themed with special genres and costumes. 

Among Miss Sam’s Goals: 
- Bring dance education to Naples as a physical recreation alternative to other sports such as basketball and soccer. 
- dance develops a strong, graceful body 
- learn to stand tall, carry self with sense of poise 
- children gain confidence in how they see themselves 
- develops skills for socializing & expressing emotion 

Registrations will be accepted through the end of October. For more information contact Samantha Alger at samanthatalger@yahoo.com.
