NIA's 1st principle is the JOY of Movement. 
Within the NIA program we practice unifying thinking, sensing, feeling 
to become conscious movers, joyful dancers, sacred athletes. 
NIA, FloorPlay and FreeDance 
creatively engages all 6 sensations of movement 
~ flexibility, agility, mobility, speed, strength and stability ~
to ENHANCE the intensity of our workout.  
To "workout" we use thinking, sensing, feeling 
to help recognize JOYFUL behavior patterns in our movement.
In NIA we encourage personalizing to EXPERIMENT
and let go of FEAR and move into TRUST that every move of the body 
provides an opportunity to create fitness when we move with PURPOSE.  
When we do we are able to distinguish between the 6 sensations of movement 
and self monitor our physical body without judgement.

In 2016, 
BALANCE perfecting the NIA Technique, your posture and on and on with 
CREATING movement for pleasure, for joy, for the MUSE within you.

Thank you for the gifts you bring to the dance floor.
Your journey inspires my journey!
