Children’s Tumbling was founded in 1978 and continues to provide a unique extracurricular gymnastics program for children of all abilities from age 16 months. Classes are offered in a comfortable and safe Lower Manhattan studio. Children’s Tumbling is distinguished from more traditional gymnastics programs by its innovative, integrated, and non-competitive approach to movement, which incorporates music, storytelling and each student’s imagination. Developing physical confidence and natural ease of movement is basic to the approach. The variety of activities encourages flexibility and creativity, assuring that each child meets his/her own level of achievement.

MamaSoul.com

0

The purpose of MamaSoul.com is to provide a place where women can ask questions and find answers in a safe, non-judgmental space; a place where women can access yoga and meditation from their home when walking out the door is too much hard work; a place where they can interact with nutritionists, doulas, social workers, and plain old mamas who know. Throw in a little curated shopping experience with recommended items to promote healthy living and some pampering, and you have MamaSoul.

MamaSoul knows that women in all communities can be in need of this type of help, but unfortunately don't have the access or the means. That's why 50% of monthly membership fees go toward a charity promoting mental health and wellness in women (for example, during National Yoga Month, MamaSoul will be donating to The Yoga Alliance).

Super Stars Tennis

0

Super Stars Tennis has introduced thousands of children to the sport of tennis. Its USTA Quick Start format makes learning tennis easier and more fun than ever. Super Stars Tennis programs introduce tennis sized right for kids so they develop skills and have fun right from the start. Using modified equipment and courts tailored to a child’s size and age, kids will learn, rally, play, and compete quickly and in a way that is both enjoyable and rewarding. The Quick Start format offers slower-moving and lower-bouncing balls, shorter and lighter racquets, and smaller courts. The smaller courts give kids the confidence and ability to cover the entire court. The shorter, lighter racquets allow kids to control the racquet and discourage extreme grips. The balls slow down play, bounce at a height equal to the kids’ playing abilities, and provide longer rallies. All classes are taught by a staff of professionals. Please visit the website for more information and a full list of locations.
