Susan’s Playlists for March 25-29, 2013

nia mover 3We are all multi-faceted, multi-dimensional creatures. The practice of Nia reflects this humanness, in part, with the nine movement forms. The personalities of the three dance arts (Duncan, Jazz and Modern), the three martial arts (T’ai Chi, Tae Kwon Do and Aikido) and the three healing arts (Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique and Yoga) give us an opportunity to train and condition our bodies, minds and emotions in a variety of ways. It’s always illuminating for me to do this practice and notice which of the nine I gravitate toward and which I want to avoid. And the nine movement forms give me embodied experience that I can use in my life, too. Whatever I need — to create a clear boundary (Tae Kwon Do) or to be more conscious of how I am positioning myself (Yoga) or to add a little sparkle and fun (Jazz) — the nine forms are available to me in the studio and at the kitchen table.

Here are the playlist from the week with the movement form that we explored with each song (these aren’t the only forms that we could have explored with each song, just what I chose to focus on). Some people asked about both the Eric Whitacre Virtual Choir pieces and the beatbox song by Kid Beyond called Deep Inside. Videos for those are below as well!

EnJOY and as ever, just say the word if I can help more!
Love,
Susan
