Nia session with Sophie Marsh: Let Joy move your body and reconnect to what you may have forgotten… the sensation of life-force energy that is your birthright.  In Nia, Joy is a physical celebration of both your uniqueness and connectedness. It is a sensation that can be chosen and felt in any moment, and can bring an aliveness and presence to every experience. To inspiring music, you'll be guided to move mindfully in ways that feel powerful, fun and healing, using Joy as a thread that inspires and enlivens us.  Be prepared to step out sweating and smiling!

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.

Let your body find it's own rhythm, sense your breath and and rediscover the sensation of aliveness that you knew as a playful child.

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

Beginning 22/7/15 I will be offering a half hour class in the Nia 5 Stages at the Tugun Progress 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.

Nia session with Sophie Marsh: Let Joy move your body and reconnect to what you may have forgotten… the sensation of life-force energy that is your birthright.  In Nia, Joy is a physical celebration of both your uniqueness and connectedness. It is a sensation that can be chosen and felt in any moment, and can bring an aliveness and presence to every experience. To inspiring music, you'll be guided to move mindfully in ways that feel powerful, fun and healing, using Joy as a thread that inspires and enlivens us.  Be prepared to step out sweating and smiling!
