    AD{TS4754769} AD{TS4736345} THE Kingston Whig-Standard fall activity Guide SATURDAY, AUGUST 20, 2016 5 Best Health Physiotherapy Teamwork gets the job done! Nordic walking provides a total body workout. Physiotherapists have prescribed Nordic Pole Walking for many years as an excellent form of low impact activity that improves health and fitness. Nordic Pole Walking provides a total body and cardiovascular workout all in ONE activity, and can be beneficial to virtually any level of fitness and physical capability.

Just as with regular walking, Nordic Pole Walking can be done anywhere and in any season. It is a highly accessible activity with little expense. Thirty minutes of Nordic Pole Walking equals 55 minutes of regular walking! In addition, because of the use of the arms and poles when Nordic Pole Walking, there is less impact on ankle, knee and hip joints, posture and balance are improved, and back and neck pain can be reduced. Nordic Pole Walking, of course, also offers all the benefits of regular walking, including lower blood pressure, better blood sugar control (diabetes type 2), improved circulation, and improved bone mineral density in the arms and upper spine (Osteoporosis).

Website: www.robroykingston.com Email: registration@robroykingston.com Contact: Donna Clarke-McMullen at 613-374-3505 Bonjour or Hola! Une École Pour Tous remains Kingston’s first and only French Montessori School for children between the ages of 1 ½ to 5 began operations in the summer of 2008. It was inspired by the vision and pioneering of Maria Montessori, an Italian physician and educator who opened her first school in 1907. Now entering its eighth year in Kingston, Une École Pour Tous will be expanding the educational programming with Ateliers Montessori Kingston with an after school program in French at Boys and Girls club this September. Founder and Director, Tracy Bénéteau de Laprairie, brings a wealth of experience in childhood Montessori education to her school and organize the classrooms and programs in French and Spanish. “At this early stage of development, a child’s mind is a sponge absorbing language, culture, social behaviors and order” explains Bénéteau de Laprairie. Although learning multiple sets of vocabulary may take more time for some, a child at this stage can acquire the foundation for advanced mental flexibility and a lifetime of multi-lingual intelligence. Growing up in a multicultural and multi-lingual home is not an uncommon experience for Canadians. To many newcomers and first generation families who come to the school, the opportunity for their children to learn and develop in a similar multi-lingual environment is a natural extension of their family values. For other families, developing a second or third language at a very early age in a Montessori environment is simply viewed as an opportunity to provide their children with a competitive edge in life that they might not have had. Montessori schools emphasize independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological development. Today there are over 7,000 Montesorri schools world-wide. Director Bénéteau de Laprairie has worked as an educator of children since 1998. She received her diploma from the Maria Montessori Institute of Paris in 2004, and worked in various Montessori schools in France (Turbul), and in Quebec (École Montessori International). Une École Pour Tous welcomes a community of children who are culturally diverse in their abilities, their interests, and their needs. The curriculum is internationally recognized and has been implemented at numerous schools in Canada, the United States and throughout the world and accessible for everyone. Une École Pour Tous is licensed under the Day Nurseries Act.

Leisa’s School of Dance has grown from a small venture with a dozen students taking classes in a local school gymnasium one night a week, to a large school with 2 spacious studios running seven days a week. Leisa attributes her success to family. The sign on the door may say “Leisa’s School of Dance”, but it truly is a family endeavour.

Leisa’s School of Dance maintains a friendly family atmosphere while remaining passionate about excellence of instruction and the overall dance experience. Leisa and her highly qualified instructors provide praise and encouragement while upholding consistency in quality, technique, and standards. They foster teamwork, and artistic growth in each student, but most importantly they emphasize the importance of having fun while learning. Leisa believes that dance enhances the overall well-being of the child or adult, and recognizes the many benefits that will have a positive effect on their future endeavours. Over the years Leisa has seen her graduates move on to very successful carreers, some in the world of dance, and some not, but the two things that remain constant are their life long friendships and their love of dance. In fact, Leisa’s first students are now bringing their children for lessons. This is an amazing sight and a testament to the unique experience these young parents remember from their childhood.
