Sensing New Moon Life Force energy – a Nia Class

Sense Life Force energy as it vibrates, churns, whooshes and flows through you while you dance!

https://youtu.be/T-a8o0wWfLo

Class Focus: Life Force... How do you know you are ALIVE? You can answer with the musty old Latin, "Cogito ergo sum" from Descartes, which would serve I suppose... OR, you can DANCE! Tap into the many, many sensations rolling over and through your body each and every moment. Do not feel limited to just the 5 senses; there truly are so many nuances of feeling life and sensing ALIVEness in our bodies. When we move through space, playing with rhythm and speed, we can become more attuned to the variations of sensation available to us. We can then interpret these sensations to help us heal, strengthen, extend... to laugh, release anger, define boundaries... 

Recall a time you had a 'gut feeling' about something. That can't be classified within our usual, 5 senses. But we most definitely FEEL that, don't we? Take this idea of sensing Life Force a bit further, to butterflies of joyful anticipation, or churning grinding metal chunks of dread and fear, or sparkly, light-headed giddiness from excitement. The more we pay attention, the more we will notice. And the more we notice, the more we can hone the ability to understand what our bodies are telling us, and thereby maintain greater health and vitality on a daily basis! 

Nia uses soul-stirring music and simple steps and stances, that will guide you to move in ways that will make you feel more alive in your body, while building muscle and physical awareness of HOW your body moves through space.

First Class = $5

Drop-in = $15

Class Passes also available - contact Kirstie for more info.

Please join us for this class, and embrace that feeling vibration of Life Force coursing through you, always!

    Hi,

    Aww, that sounds wonderful! I'm sad to miss this next series. Your classes are always joyful though. I guess I'll listen to more Bobby Mcferrin's Beyond Words and Circlesongs and move my paint brush rhythmically. Stay cool in this heat!

    Hi,

    I'm so immersed in painting and so forth, I won't be coming to dance for a little while. There is so much more work to do when one has a house. I love it, but feeling a bit overwhelmed because I want to paint every room a different colour. It's taking me a week just to do the kitchen! Happy dancing! Hopefully see you a few weeks. Peace and laughter.

      Hey there Roberta :-)
      How fun and exciting about playing house! I hope to receive a house-warming invitation at some point!
      I shall miss dancing with you (we start a new routine called 'Joy' on the 2nd), but I understand the need to nest and get settled. You are welcome whenever you are ready to dance back into the studio :-)
