your body to move, your mind to discover and your spirit to soar...
Cheers to all the Midtown Aqua Team Leaders for your presence at this
A very special thank you to Nadia
Karawani, CALA Certified Leader for her commitment to helping to
organize the CALA Aqua Extravaganza on May 30, 2011 at Le Sanctuaire
Club. The event was an overwhelming success and sold out days before.
The enthusiastic applause following the class was much appreciated by
Charlene, as the members actually cheered and smiled broadly as the last
Many of the fitness instructors from
the beautiful Le Sanctuaire Club in Montreal, observed the class from
the deck, and were amazed at how all the participants were totally
focused on the movements and no one was talking during the session....
this reinforced the magic of CALA's holistic approach to movement where
the mind discovers, the body moves and the spirit soars.
Apparently the buzz is still happening
at the Club and the Fitness Director is considering more events of this
nature as a gift to the aqua participants.
Also thanks go out to Melissa - the
fitness coordinator for helping Nadia in ensuring the event was a huge
Nadia Karawani: It is
with great pride that I have achieved and continue to maintain
professional status as a CALA Certified Leader Specializing in Group
Aqua Fitness, Aqua Natal and Aqua Arthritis & Joint Disorders. For 18
years I instructed Aqua Arthritis and Aqua for Seniors Classes at the
'YWCA'. Presently, I am celebrating my ninth year at the Midtown Le
Sporting Club du Sanctuaire as a Group Aqua Fitness Instructor and
Personal Trainer for Aqua Post Rehab & Aqua Natal.
My philosophy in life: Have a
'Positive' attitude: Learn to use your adversity in life to work for you
rather than against you. If your adversity is suffering from a chronic
disease, such as, RA, OA, MS, FMS use it as a positive challenge and
move towards success as opposed to failure. Set yourself as an example
for others. I have used my Arthritis (in remission now) to become a
'JOINT' Ambassadress for CALA. Finding my passion in the magical
healing power of water and by integrating the mind, body and spirit in a
holistic approach, has enabled me to make a difference in other people's
wellness. The best gift I can ask for!
I am proud that I have been selected,
for the third time, among the 'top 9' group for the 'Star Program' which
the Midtown Club launches periodically in recognition of excellent
contribution, great skills of teaching and commitment towards servicing
the Club's Members.
So if I can do it you can do it!
