A Nia Haiku...

When trying to decide on a focus for a class for folks that were mostly new to Nia, the following haiku sprang forth, and so we danced it.

Choose joy energy.
Tune with your body 
and dance what you sense.

What Nia Has Given Me

Just having taken a Nia survey, her gifts are fresh in my mind.  Thought I would share.

Physical Benefits
Since I discovered Nia, I have stronger muscles (especially core muscles), greater flexibility, greater balance, and the ability to move more confidently, easily and gracefully.

Mental Benefits
Nia is a treat I look forward to.  It provides me an outlet for peace, an opportunity to let go and play, and a universe to explore. It quiets my mind.

Emotional Benefits
Nia is a tempering, calming force and an ever present source of confidence and overall well being for me.  It allows me to play with moods and visualizations, and brings overall balance to my life.  It tones my love muscles.

Spiritual Benefits
Nia has deepened my sense of connection.  With my body, with those around me, with everything.

There is something magical about the combination of the movement, music, and attitude of Nia that just clicked for me.  

How has it clicked for you?
