Notes About This Event

Join International Nia Trainer Ann Christiansen for a fun and functional playshop, exploring how to make the floor your friend and get more out of every Floorplay experience, both in class and in your home practice. 

Nia's Floorplay uses your body and the floor to achieve self-healing and holistic fitness.  Organic in nature, Floorplay is designed to be personal, adaptable, enjoyable, graceful, and powerful, just like your body is designed to be. The words pleasure, play and comfort are at the heart of the practice, reconnecting you to a pre-verbal instinct inside you that knows how to move to heal.

Developing this connection to your body’s inner wisdom will enhance everything you do in your body:  the way you dance, run, ski, lift weights, practice yoga, make love, get up and down from the floor, and experience any sport, body, or life practice.

Open to Nia newbies, students, grads and teachers... this delicious body-centred offering has something for every body.

Notes About This Event

Join Rebecca Kelly and Beverley Iffla for a blissful afternoon of healing sounds, ancient tones and movement medicine.

We will explore simple yet powerful techniques of breath, sound, vocal toning and dance. These practices can support us to fine-tune our greatest vibrational instrument: our own body. 

For thousands of years we have used sound and dance to heal, to touch the soul, enhance emotion and generate Joy. The combination of conscious movement with breath and sacred sound creates a magical somatic experience. 

Rebecca will take you on a transformational dance journey fusing freedom and form, breath and energy alignment tools. You will expand your awareness of pleasure and sensation, be uplifted, moved and inspired, deepening your connection to your body and your being. 

This will be followed by a Sacred Sound Journey with Beverley. Combining the exquisite tones of the Crystal Bowls with her resonant voice, Bev will take you on a deeply relaxing and expansive journey into wholeness and Oneness. You will experience multi-dimensional ripples of sound that grow into waves and bathe your entire body. 

Please note this is an over 16 event

Testimonial from Linda Liewendahl who attended our last playshop in May ♥ 

“My experience with Rebecca & Beverly here in Auckland was truly amazing and filled with so much love. For me it was really about coming home, connecting with my true self and getting back into alignment with myself. The dance and practices I experienced made me feel a deep sense of Freedom, Joy, and Love for myself. I also got to release a lot of emotions and tensions within my body which has been holding me back from living my life to my fullest potential which was incredible. I loved that the workshop started with dance to connect to our selves and ended with sound healing which was truly magical. I highly recommend this workshop hold by 2 beautiful and amazing souls"

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

Please note class dates: 15/8, 22/8, 29/8,5/9 ...2015

I will be offering a half hour class in the Nia 5 Stages at the Brunswick Heads School Hall before regular Nia.

Time: 8.30 – 9.00am, followed by Nia 9.00 – 10.00am.

Come along to enhance your somatic awareness and sensation of Pleasure of living in your body!

The Nia 5 Stages is an integrative practice based on the five stages of human development: Embryonic, Creeping, Crawling, Standing, and Walking. Each stage is a foundation for the next. Combined, all five stages help people to integrate physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. When practiced daily, these stages facilitate optimal alignment and function. Practicing the Nia 5 Stages allows your body to naturally reclaim the physical Mobility, Flexibility, Strength, Agility and Stability it needs. The continual practice of the Nia 5 Stages provides a way for the body to do what it does best, take care of itself and to self-heal. When allowed to, the body will always move towards healing, seeking how to function optimally.

It has been found that benefits can be experienced in as little as five minutes a day and that, no matter how many times practiced, profound changes occurred.
