Dancing Through Life With Pleasure: Nia Student Stories

Saturday, October 14th, 2017
I’ve been dancing with Kim since 2013. She graciously shared her Nia story with me!

Nia movement is life
Nia is fun!

Nia with Jennifer turned a corner for me. 

I had previously tried all sorts of other physical activities and found they were either not fun, too repetitive (aka boring), or too constraining (striving to attain perfection is frustrating if you don’t possess a competitive personality).” 

Nia: no judgement & lots of laughter

“I love Jenn’s approach to her Nia classes – ensuring everyone feels comfortable in taking the routine only as far as their own bodies can go that day – without judgement, without goals, other than to enjoy the movement.  I always feel rejuvenated by the low impact technique and did I mention the typical laughter that also flows in each session?”

Thank you, Kim, for sharing your story and experiences with Nia!

Coming Soon: Nia Move IT classes

Nia Move IT classes

I’m cooking up something NEW in my Nia class offerings!

A few weekends back, I had a privilege of studying with Kelle Rae Oien, a Nia trainer based in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Here’s a short video of some of our classes:

 

That weekend was INCREDIBLY energizing for me.
We studied Nia’s 52 Moves and how to use them to create an interval training experience – a new class format called Move IT.
(You can read the technical description of Move IT here).

After the training, we had the option to continue studying via an apprenticeship program.

Based on the conditioning and enlivening fitness feeling I got, I decided to go for it!

 

Nia Move I.T.

 

 

Why I want to teach Move IT

  • It’s such a FUN interval training experience that feels like dancing with a twist!
  • I feel FRACKING FANTASTIC after a Move IT class
  • I want anaerobic conditioning (which will give me energy and optimize my aging process)
  • I want to train my reflexive muscular skills (the ability to move/react without thinking)
  • I want the challenge of doing something different
  • I don’t want to get injured – I want to continue to respect the body’s way (my body ‘s wayand this is the ONLY interval training program that will do that.

 

Stay tuned for Move IT classes starting in the coming months!
