Yoga for Alzheimers Seniors - Silver Age Yoga Community Outreach, Inc.

I would like to start by thanking Steven for allowing me to approach you, his readers. My name is Ally Peer Ben-Ezzer and I teach Yoga mostly to children www.HaveFunWithYoga.com. Since January of 2008, I have been teaching Yoga for Seniors at Cantor Center in South Florida. My seniors all have Alzheimer’s. They are all at a stage in which they cannot be left alone, so they come to the day center for the day and then go home to be with their families. Yet, they can still follow directions and understand their situation. I teach a weekly class there and can see the progress my seniors make. The daycare center happens to be a Jewish charity but everyone is welcome if they are in need. My class has grown from an average of 14 to an average of 24 participants a week. I need your support in donations to charity through which I teach. Since these are hard times, we were not able to secure a corporate sponsor, as was the initial plan. We are asking from anyone who can help to donate. Please know that there are no small donations, whatever you can do to help will be greatly appreciated.

Feel free to contact me with any questions: ally@HaveFunWithYoga.com.

Namaste,
Ally

DIMENSIONS: Navigating the Spiritual Spectrum

Grounded in the traditions of Torah and Veda, Steven J. Gold takes us on an oceanic tour of the depth and breadth of spiritual consciousness. Sharing personal stories and insights into various traditional scriptures as examples, he urges us to adopt a spiritual worldview, to “ponder infinity, awake and arise,” to “find your inspiration and follow it.”


“The chapters…are records of what happens when Steve’s right mind, and heart, are given full freedom to wander where they wish. As discoveries and correlations are made, his well-trained left mind and sharp wit give his observations shape and form…” – Brother Shankara, Resident Minister, Vedanta Center of Atlanta


“Universal Ice Cream: Dive deep into Steve’s wonderful book to help find your favorite flavor on the Spiritual Spectrum.” – Rabbi Mitch Cohen, Spiritual Leader, Congregation Shalom B’Harim, Dahlonega, GA

“Steven J. Gold’s Dimensions is an exploration of spirituality from the inside out. If you are looking for a guide through the pathless land of truth, read this book.” – Rabbi Rami Shapiro, author of The World Wisdom Bible
