Everybody’s a whole bunch of everything, so Nia uses the energy and essence of 9 movement forms:
Dance Arts – Jazz, Duncan Dance, Modern Dance
Martial Arts — T’ai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido
Healing Arts – Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique, Yoga
The personality of each form expands potential in body, mind, emotions. 9 forms offer yin, yang, and balance: yin (Duncan, T’ai Chi, Feldenkrais), yang (Jazz, Tae Kwon Do, Alexander) and balance (Modern, Aikido, Yoga). Use these dynamics to explore places we hide or deny. (Jamie Catto wrote on this last summer.) In comments below, use 9 words to describe you!
