YogaCAN Event Returns to Naples
Rodney and Colleen Yee
The sixth annual YogaCAN event, featuring Rodney Yee, the renowned instructor who rose to national prominence in the early 1990s starring in Gaiam/Living Arts instructional videos, and his wife, Colleen Saidman Yee, a fellow instructor, owner of Yoga Shanti studios, co-founder of Urban Zen Integrative Therapy and author of Yoga for Life, will present a kickoff party at 6:30 p.m., April 7. The duo will also offer a master class at 8:30 a.m. and an all-levels yoga session overlooking the Gulf at 10:30 a.m., both on April 8, on the lawn of the Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club.
Naples studios collaborating for the event are BKS, Yoga Loft, FLOW-Yo (formerly GreenMonkey), Practice Yoga and Naples Yoga Center. Donation Yoga Naples is also participating.
The program supports the Cancer Alliance of Naples, founded by Dr. Joel Waltzer, a Naples dermatologist and yoga teacher at Practice Yoga, who was inspired by Yee’s videos to begin a yoga practice. More than $250,000 has been raised since the program’s inception, helping to cover the non-medical bills for more than 125 cancer patients and their families in both Collier and Lee counties. Along with use of their lawn, the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club will offer refreshments.Edit ModuleShow Tags
