Discover Your Movement Alchemy
April 13, 2018 – April 15, 2018
Pranashanti Yoga Centre Ottawa


For all students, teachers, and lovers of Nia & Yoga.

This weekend is about expanding our capacity to feel good in our own body while learning how to enhance this feeling both on and off the mat/ dance floor. It’s an exploration of how your body wants to move becoming open and honest with yourself, diving into areas of tension and resistance.

Together we will explore “The Body’s Way” of movement. Designed to help you understand your movement choices in relation to your specific body’s function and composition. This way of movement allows you to (re-)discover the joy of movement, healthy alignment, and stillness.

We will use a variety of holistic movement practices such as Yoga, Nia, meditation and more!

During this weekend, you will:

~ Learn Tools for reclaiming and sustaining mobility, flexibility, strength, agility, and stability in your own practice and teachings.
~ Explore Free-form dance explorations and unique music to discover your body’s stories and to expand your movement creativity and curiosity.
~ Develop Body-centered communication and enhance your awareness of the body and remaining present with yourself and others.
~ Establish the Anatomy of the Body’s Way through lecture, meditation, and asana.

To ensure a tailored experience this training has a maximum of 24 students, make sure to sign up early to secure your spot!

What can you expect?
It is my intention is to break down the moves for you, one by one, slowly at first, going through the detail and the sensation of each move. We will pause briefly after this piece and then dance ALL of Nia's 52 Moves so that you have a chance to more fully integrate what you have learned. 

What would I most like you to know about this workshop?
Whilst our intent is to learn the moves, our focus will be to have a joyful and playful experience! There is no pressure to "learn" and "know it all" by the end of the day! Goodness, It took me way longer than an afternoon to get these moves in my body, but if this is something you desire, then practice is the way to go! :-)

The Nia Technique is a dance-fitness class that empowers people of all shapes and sizes to step into a joyful relationship with their bodies and movement. Nia combines martial arts, healing arts, and dance arts to create a high-powered, synergistic workout that no isolated exercise technique can match. Part choreographed and part free-form, Nia delivers a solid aerobic workout, with each experience adaptable to individual needs and abilities. Classes are generally done barefoot to soul-stirring music that motivates every part of you to move. Step into your own joyful journey with Nia, and positively shape the way you feel, look, think and live. No experience necessary.

Notes About This Event

Have you heard about Nia but never actually taken a class? Does it intrigue you but you're not sure if it's for you or not?

Please join me in a celebration of Your Body. I will be introducing Nia to you, offering a bit of background and some basics and then we will dance a full Nia routine. 

If you enjoy it, there will be an opportunity to take advantagbe of a special offer to sign up for my Fall Session (in any of my locations) and if you decide it is not for you, or perfectly fine, but just a one time thing, then that's good too, but at least you'll have tried something new and had a night out!

And...if you already LOVE Nia and are planning to dance with me again anyway? GREAT! Please come and have a class on me! :-)

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

The Nia Technique is a dance-fitness class that empowers people of all shapes and sizes to step into a joyful relationship with their bodies and movement. Nia combines martial arts, healing arts, and dance arts to create a high-powered, synergistic workout that no isolated exercise technique can match. Part choreographed and part free-form, Nia delivers a solid aerobic workout, with each experience adaptable to individual needs and abilities. Classes are generally done barefoot to soul-stirring music that motivates every part of you to move. Step into your own joyful journey with Nia, and positively shape the way you feel, look, think and live. No experience necessary.
