Notes About This Event
We will explore the new Nia Routine Touch in a relaxed and fun way. The focus of this routine is touch with the intention to increase your awareness of sensation using four touchstones: skin, breath, eyes and sound. Inspired by the “touch” of silence and sound one experiences when listening to a piece of music, the touchstones provide you with places in the body to anchor your attention as you dance a soundscape of mantra, thick beats, and vocal harmonies. Increase your awareness of sensation using meditative hand mudras, vocal sounding, physical touch, and by making a visual connection as you dance.
A great workshop for new students wanting to learn the Nia basics and for experienced students wanting to accelerate the learning process. New students receive 2 free Nia classes at DanceWorks Studio.
Schedule: 2:30 - 3 pm: Introduction and Explore the 4 Touchstones through Nia's 5 Stages of Self-Healing
3 - 3:50 pm: Learn the Moves for the Nia Routine Touch
