Notes About This Event

The age old practice of Yoga is built on universal and ethical principles, personal discipline, postures, breathing techniques, concentration of the mind, and meditation. It is a science and a system for re-establishing and maintaining health. Practice becomes a way of life, training and transforming its practitioners.  Through muscular contraction and expansion blossoms integrated balance and a greater ability to remain peaceful amidst the storm. Yoga invigorates the spirit. 

When applied to Nia’s Finding Health Through Movement practice, Yoga enables the Nia practitioner to have a deeper understanding about relationships between bones, energy expenditure, posture as it relates to wellness and how the mind exists within the body. Similarly, Nia enables the Yoga practitioner to truly feel into the soul and move with the spirit in organic expression. The two together create a divine pairing to awaken and ignite the soul.

This workshop will delve deeply into both worlds and create a bridge to facilitate each practice.  Yoga + Nia enhance living. NiaNow.com

... Wind Beneath My Wings

Nia White Belt Training with Julie Wylie
September 3, 2016Mind Body Yoga Therapy
I'm alive, filled to the brim, heading home from Houston after my White Belt Intensive Training.  Soaring high above me a flock of birds seamlessly change direction; it's at their moment of shift, I feel wind beneath my wings.  Really!  My arms didn't move.  The windows in the truck aren't down and yet I clearly felt the wind they felt beneath my own arms.  Flying, my change in direction from corporate to se

I'm alive, filled to the brim, heading home from Houston after my White Belt Intensive Training.  Soaring high above me a flock of birds seamlessly change direction; it's at their moment of shift, I feel wind beneath my wings.  Really!  My arms didn't move.  The windows in the truck aren't down and yet I clearly felt the wind they felt beneath my own arms.  Flying, my change in direction from corporate to self-employment felt affirmed.

It's February 2005, I'm headed for Houston to spend 7 days to collect some moves and some music.  I want to teach Nia and I've signed up to attend Helen Terry's White Belt!  (Learn More) Little did I know, a collective of disciplines awaited their introduction to my Body.  They gathered together to present themselve with one goal in mind.  They had a path to reveal, a path toward Loving My Body and Loving My Life.

The was set in Stillness.  An Optimal Learning Environment was agreed on;  YES, I am in.  The Soul of Nia openly suggested I connect to Joy by Choosing Sensation.  I learn to extend an invitation creating an Environment for Embracing All.  A point was made.  Natural Time introduced me to my Fluid Structure, while the Arts enticed me to explore diverse aspects of my whole self (BMES).  I 'grok'ed this second point and a thread appeared between Principle 1 and Principle 2, a connection occured.  A third idea presented itself forming a surface of Silence; I am here now waiting for Sound.  Hearing that Anything Goes, I'm moved to explore as FreeDance arrives with a volumous container of play toys, tools for expanding my creativity.  I'm Being Seduced by this collection and it's a sensational experience.  Next I heard "Ask your Body what it needs to feel better thne wait, the answer will come."  I'm skeptical, but continued my note taking, pretending, faking it, acting as if I understood.  Paying Attention to Pleasure caught my full attention, this sounded the Real Me, it felt real too as I've always felt better when I Danced Through my Life. My Feet turned into Hands and I began to fall in love with my bare feet and the feeling of the floor.  "Do it your way," activated my Conscious Personal Trainer.  I shifted my weight and smiled.  Change!!  WHAT?! I squirmed, noting discomfort.  Interfere...Judge...Not!  An impossible task is asked of me!  Afterall, I'd spent years developing my judge, we were tight!  A structure of ideal examples continues to emerge as Energy Centers introduce themselves.  With arms open wide, the Upper Extremities began to express.  Loosening, tightening; I adjusted my Body, and Dynamic Alignment into a "body-click".  Excited to Deliver the Promise, consciously using my time, and life force energy as a healing gesture; I was eager to approach the Tools for Transformation.  Listening and Dancing, I can hardly fathom what was coming next, I summoned my courage, as that's how I'd always approached life.  Filled with fear, I step up in front of my peers to Share What I Sense.  My good news: The self-selected experience of teaching a song didn't kill me. Infinite possibilities unwound, outward and inward simultaneously. 

The time has come, 7 days have passed, I'd collected Nia's Technique in my Body.  Now it was back to Austin with this network of informational threads emerging as a supportive web.  I was returning home with a system of acquiring knowledge through research and study, a applied science containing all the ingredients for Alchemy of my Body, my Mind, my Emotions and my Spirit.   

Back in my truck heading toward Austin, TX ...  Clarity arrived with their [the birds above my head] change in direction, with my change in direction.  A prayer I'd pondered for nearly a year "Mitakuye Oyasin"** revealed itself to me through the sensation of that moment.  

**Wikipedia: Mitakuye Oyasin - a Lakota Sioux prayer. The phrase translates as "all my relatives," "we are all related," or "all my relations." It is a prayer of oneness and harmony with all forms of life: other people, animals, birds, insects, trees and plants, and even rocks, rivers, mountains and valleys.

Today, curiosity abundantly fuels this Sensation Scientists' journey.  Join me in Austin, TX for the next Nia White Belt Certification.  It's moving experience.

About Nia

What is Nia?

Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts and healing arts. It empowers people of all shapes and sizes by connecting the body, mind, emotions and spirit. Classes are taken barefoot to soul-stirring music in more than 45 countries. Trainings are designed for those seeking personal enrichment and professional development. Every experience can be adapted to individual needs and abilities. Step into your own joyful journey with Nia, and positively shape the way you feel, look, think and live.

How does Nia work?

Nia draws from Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, jazz dance, modern dance, Duncan dance, yoga, Alexander Technique and Teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais. Every class offers a unique combination of 52 moves that correspond with the main areas of the body: the base, the core and the upper extremities. Stiff beginners and highly fit athletes alike can adapt Nia to meet their needs by choosing from three intensity levels. Consecutive trainings collectively explore 52 principles for personal enrichment and professional development. Read testimonials from people of all ages, backgrounds and locations.

Why was Nia created?

Nia’s purpose is to grow a worldwide community of healthy people who are empowered to do great things. We believe every person can discover, explore, unleash and enhance their individual potential to live a fulfilling and meaningful life – by engaging their senses and listening to their bodies. With the right tools and education, we can increase our confidence and happiness. We can become connected to others to shape a consciousness that extends beyond our own. Together we will unearth possibilities never before imagined.

Nia is based on the intelligent design of the body. Each workout brings mindfulness to your dance movement experience leaving you energized, mentally clear, and emotionally balanced.

Nia cardio-dance workouts combine 52 simple moves with dance arts, martial arts, and healing arts to get you fit in 60 minutes - body, mind, emotion, and spirit.

Nia is non-impact, practiced barefoot, and adaptable to individual needs and abilities. Nia classes are taught by licensed Nia teachers.

Notes About This Class

Gentle NIA

For those who want to ease into a movement practice and/or are dancing with physical limitations so that we need to take extra special care.  We take it slow and simplify or modify moves to suit our bodies today.  With practice, we learn to listen to our bodies and make changes independently.

Notes About This Event

The age old practice of Yoga is built on universal and ethical principles, personal discipline, postures, breathing techniques, concentration of the mind, and meditation. It is a science and a system for re-establishing and maintaining health. Practice becomes a way of life, training and transforming its practitioners.  Through muscular contraction and expansion blossoms integrated balance and a greater ability to remain peaceful amidst the storm. Yoga invigorates the spirit. 

When applied to Nia’s Finding Health Through Movement practice, Yoga enables the Nia practitioner to have a deeper understanding about relationships between bones, energy expenditure, posture as it relates to wellness and how the mind exists within the body. Similarly, Nia enables the Yoga practitioner to truly feel into the soul and move with the spirit in organic expression. The two together create a divine pairing to awaken and ignite the soul.

This workshop will delve deeply into both worlds and create a bridge to facilitate each practice.  Yoga + Nia enhance living. NiaNow.com
