Notes About This Event

The Sacred Feminine is a power and wisdom you already carry within. It is a sensuous knowing in your body of deep pleasure and of your own beauty, that longs to be felt and fully expressed. The Sacred Feminine is nurturing, loving, receptive and open. She is wild, free, creative, expressive. She is sensual, radiant, magnetic and present. She is grounded, connected, collaborative, whole. 

Join us in a safe and welcoming space, to experience an intimate sense of self, guided by your body’s way. Through awareness, breath work, conscious movement and Nia dance, you are invited to heal, nourish, move and celebrate the essence of your Sacred Feminine. This 3 hour playshop includes a Nia class. No prior experience with Nia is needed. 

“Feminine Power isn’t something we go out and acquire, it’s already within us. It’s something we become willing to experience. Something to admit we have.”  – Marianne Williamson

On behalf of Nia Australia, Vulcana Women's Circus, WaW Dance and BRISBANE POWERHOUSE, we invite you to join us on Sunday 12 February 2017 to rise up & dance as part of the global One Billion Rising Brisbane movement to end violence against women and girls.

4-5pm Honouring & Dancing with Vulcana Women’s Circus, WaW Dance, BDVS and Nia Australia - Performance Lawn, Brisbane Powerhouse

Entry to the Dance Jam is by donation to raise much needed $$ for the Brisbane Domestic Violence Service. EVERY BODY is welcome. No experience needed. Come and Join the Movement!

All individuals and organisations collaborating for this event are donating time, talent, joy, life-force, passion, space and love to rise in solidarity against the exploitation of women and give back to the Brisbane Domestic Violence Service.

WHO ARE WE?
This is Nia Australia - Transform How You Live
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BS6zKbQxOz0 

Vulcana Women's Circus grows strong women! Flexible and fun, challenging and definitely unique, we are about positive experiences of physicality and creative power.

WaW Dance offers mature women a safe place to come together and experience the joy of dance and healthy ageing

Brisbane Domestic Violence Service supports women, children, family members, same sex couples and others, providing a range of services, including information and referral, crisis support, practical assistance, advocacy, counselling and emotional support. 

BRISBANE POWERHOUSE is a hub for everything creative, all housed in a stunning venue on the Brisbane River.

WHAT IS ONE BILLION RISING? 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgbawrWUPu0 
One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history. The campaign, launched on Valentine’s Day 2012, began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. 

Every February, we rise – in hundreds of countries across the world – to show our local communities and the world what one billion looks like and shine a light on the rampant impunity and injustice that survivors most often face. We rise through dance to express joy and community and and celebrate the fact that we have not been defeated by this violence. We rise to show we are determined to create a new kind of consciousness – one where violence will be resisted until it is unthinkable.

*Women and girls is an inclusive term reflecting all those who were assigned and/or identify as female.

This event is for every body - new and experienced students, belt grads and teachers.  The focus of this routine is the chemistry of the three movement arts in Nia: Martial Arts, Dance Arts, and Healing Arts. The intent is for you to sense these three as unique energy personalities you can use to bring moves to life and deliver holistic conditioning using movement and energy variety for conditioning benefits.

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.

Your views on Nia 4 Kids:

“Nia has brought happiness and joy into my life. I always look forward to my Nia class and smile the whole way through. I will be sending my daughter to Nia4Kids so she can also experience this joy!” JOCIE, Everton Park

“Through Nia I have experienced lightness while moving and an understanding that dance is individual and does not have to look or be a particular way. It’s fun and inner calming at the same time. I believe kids will love that they don’t have to be exact with the movements and they will really enjoy the freedom Nia brings.”  CAROL, Albany Creek

“My daughter loves music and she loves to move in response to great sounds. The Nia routines have wonderful music and it gives her the freedom to move how she feels, within a well-planned structure. There are no mistakes in Nia, so not only is it great exercise, it is also good for her confidence. Nia makes me feel great. The movements are easy; they feel natural and there is freedom within the form of the routines and what I love most about Nia is the music.” YOLANDA, Arana Hills

Notes About This Event

The Sacred Feminine is a power and wisdom you already carry within. It is a sensuous knowing in your body of deep pleasure and of your own beauty, that longs to be felt and fully expressed. The Sacred Feminine is nurturing, loving, receptive and open. She is wild, free, creative, expressive. She is sensual, radiant, magnetic and present. She is grounded, connected, collaborative, whole. 

Join us in a safe and welcoming space, to experience an intimate sense of self, guided by your body’s way. Through awareness, breath work, conscious movement and Nia dance, you are invited to heal, nourish, move and celebrate the essence of your Sacred Feminine. This 3 hour playshop includes a Nia class. No prior experience with Nia is needed. 

“Feminine Power isn’t something we go out and acquire, it’s already within us. It’s something we become willing to experience. Something to admit we have.”  – Marianne Williamson
