Awaken your body Sunday mornings with a healing movement practice. Using the principles and lessons from the Nia 5 Stages of Healing. Allow yourself time to slow down, explore your body’s anatomy, and restore your body from the inside out. Reconnect to five stages of human development – Embryonic, Creeping, Crawling, Standing and Walking. Ease your body into reclaiming its natural mobility, flexibility, strength, agility, and stability.
Like yoga, much of the this practice is done on the floor, or smoothly and easily going down to and coming up from the floor. Modifications are made if your body is not ready to make it all the way down to the floor. In each session, Vicky will focus on a specific aspect of the human body as it relates to the whole. Reintroduce your body to yourself and learn and restore the beauty and dynamic ability of your body’s anatomical structure.
Session 1 (December 14): Body Awareness – Tracking Sensations of Pleasure and Pain – This is an opportunity for you to explore The Body’s Way, which is a method of looking at the design of the body and allowing its structure to dictate how the body is used – that means how you do what you do.
Session 2 (December 21): Becoming a Sensation Scientist – Listen to the voice of the the body. In this session, you will cultivate body awareness through all parts of the body (skin, joints, muscles, bones, etc.). You will use your body as a tool to enhance your well being. You will learn to listen to your body to make choices that make you feel better.
