Natalie  -- aka Natasha – A Canadian and part time Schroon Laker is an amazing dancer. But not just any dancer – a belly dancer, who teaches not only this artful dance, but the health benefits of shimmy, shimmy, shimmy as well!

This Saturday, (May 17, 2014) she will be here and teaching a special Bellydance class at True North Yoga. From True North’s Deb Philp:

“Come warm up for her ‘Summer Belly Dance Workshop Series and unlock your inner goddess! Perfect class for anyone! If you have participated in previous workshops or the monthly Bellydance jams you will love the refresher. If you have not yet had the opportunity to experience this beautiful dance, this is your chance! Hip scarves will be provided for students to wear during class. $10

You’ve Got A Friend

Earlier this year Schroon Lakers Deb Philp and Annie  Gregson held a weekend work shop for women, combining, rest, Yoga, journalling, fine food and friendship. So positive was the response from those who attended, many of the women wanted to continue the experience. Thus was born The Women’s Circle, who meet regularly at Deb’s True North Yoga Studio in Schroon Lake. Their next meeting is tonight (Thursday, April 19) , from 7 pm  - 9 pm. From Annie and Deb:

What’s more fun than a group of women sharing snippets of their lives with each other? We all have our stories to tell. How about a group of other women to listen?Join us on the third Thursday of each month to connect through conversation, laughter, and empathy and maybe the perfect solution to a challenge you’re facing. Bring an open mind and willingness to share or simply listen.
