Notes About This Event

JOIN STEPHANEY AT THE GIBBES ART OF HEALING SERIES 

In this Art of Healing Series at The Gibbes : Nia Trainer Stephaney Robinson-Abilon will be offering a workshop for Everbody entitled:

Dancing Through Life as Art 

Participants will learn to take everyday movements and turn them into a dance while simultaneously perceiving your body and your life as art. Learn to move in ways that allow you to feel healthy and  alive in your body. This will open the way to perceiving life around you as art, viewing everything as wonder and admiration! Read the articles here!

About this Workshop: 


Dancing through Life as Art
 
 
In the Dancing Through Life as Art Workshop, our primary focus will be 3 Part: 1)  learning that when the body is doing everyday movements, such as walking, opening doors, etc we can  learn to move our bodies in ways that feel easier, lighter and more free. 2)  discovering the mental benefits that occur when the body is in non-movement to create a living meditation. 3)Begin to perceive everything around us, even ordinary objects as art.
 
These three components utilize Awareness as the key; without awareness the body  simply can't  know anything. ThisLife as Art perspective creates a body that physically feels better, a brain that has more mental clarity and calm, and provides for  everyday inspiration. I like to describe this as living in a body, mind and spirit that are filled with peach juice as opposed to battery acid! This lifestyle approach can be very self-healing on many levels.
 
Nia is more than just an exercise containing 13 Principles, 52 Moves, Music and Movement Forms; it is a Lifestyle practice that can change both your body and your life. This workshop will combine both philosophy and movement; movement that is simple and available for everyone regardless of  fitness level.  Nia appeals to professional athletes and dancers  as well as arthritics and people with back pain.Nia is available to all. 
 
 I will provide you with tools that allow the body to feel better and more alive while giving you an inspiring way to view the world. Dancing is not separate from life, it exists in our everyday movements, art not only exists inside a frame, it exists in everything that surrounds us and can be perceived as such. This will be an opportunity for you to become inspired as well as embracing your bodies potential to move in such a way that every movement contains beauty, strength and self healing. 
 
Stephaney Robinson-Abilon

Testimonial  from White Belt Trainee Millie Brobston: Triange Area,  North Carolina

"Do it for your body  - Do it for your mind  - Do it for your health; Nia  challenged me to see life in a new way. For example: – Life as art – I now find beauty in the most unlikely places".

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.

Notes About This Class

This is a class that will surprise many and challenge the young at heart. Come ready to move in joy and with enthusiasm. I find this 'seniors' class to be a real blessing as many are there to expand their already busy wellness activities with movements that enhance their flexibility,stamina, strength, agility, mobility and flexibily.

We dance, we laugh, we move with joy and with mindful attention to the focus and to our own experience.  Please share our enthusiasm as we explore the many Nia routines, the movement forms, the joy of learning thru dance, thru the body, and thru the magic of being in the moment with the Nia experience. Levels vary amoung students from 1 to 3 - each student listens and honors the body, inviting the Body's Way to guide the dance.

Be ready to flow to fun music, work, stretch and tone all body parts, but mostly be ready to enjoy a great sharing with friends.
