About Nia 52 Moves Training
This training is ideal for those wanting to learn more about how to condition their body and develop movement skill. Beginner's to advanced movers will find value in the 2-day movement intensive.
Anyone may enroll - Open to all levels and experience backgrounds.
The focus of the 2-day training is the art of conditioning applied to the body's base, core and upper extremities. You will learn basic anatomy related to each move objectively and somatically (that is, through sensation). This is the basis of the program in terms of exercise science. You will learn how to isolate each move and then add three levels affecting range of motion in your joints to achieve 4 types of conditioning. Through movement and music you explore how you can consciously achieve your fitness goals by applying the movements to simple patterns and sequences.
