Notes About This Event
This 2 hr workshop will focus on "Buliding the Architecture ~ The Body's Way of Base, Core, Upper Extremities." We will take time to lovingly explore those 3 body weights in each stage. I will also teah Nia's "7 minute workout" ~ how to use the 5 Stages daily for aligning, conditioning and strengthening the body.
The Nia 5 Stages of Self Healing is an integrative practice based on the five stages of human development: embryonic, creeping, crawling, standing, and walking. Practiced with awareness, these stages have the power to facilitate optimal alignment, improved function and comfort in the body. Whether practiced at length or for as little as five minutes a day, this system provides a tool for reclaiming and sustaining mobility, flexibility, strength, agility and stability. They organically realign the body in such a way that after just one practice, participants notice improvements in range of motion, power, ease and grace.
The experience is designed to be a meditative somatic learning experience teaching one how to blend Your Body's Way (your current state of fitness & alignment) with The Body's Way (optimal state of health & function). Though there has not yet been research on this work, Katie believes it has the potential to change bodies and brains, of all ages, heal the nervous system, as well as neuron pathways. Through personal exploration, one will learn to lovingly guide and make choices based on seeking pleasure instead of pain.
