Nia 5 Stages is a movement practice based on the five stages of human development: Embryonic, Creeping, Crawling, Standing, and Walking. Practicing the Nia 5 Stages allows your body to naturally reclaim its natural mobility, flexibility, strength, agility, and stability. Like yoga, much of the 5 Stages practice is done on the floor. Nia Founder Debbie Rosas calls the 5 Stages practice of going down to and getting up from the floor a natural fountain of youth. Our focus will be the feet and ankles. First we have a chance to “hang-out” with our feet and ankles – getting in touch with these important foundation points of the body. We learn how our ankles and feet are naturally designed to move, based on their structure. As a result of moving through the 5 Stages with this focus, we find comfortable ways of being on our feet – perhaps for long periods of time – whether working, dancing, running or walking. The workshop will conclude with an abbreviated Nia class.
