Susan’s Playlist Aug 19 – 23, 2014 ~ The Unofficial Guide to the Nia Principles: The Big-J Joy of Movement

P1 Joy of Movement choose joyThis week, we launched into the 13-weeks adventure of the Unofficial Guide to the 13 Principles of Nia. It’s designed to focus not just on what we do in class, but on how these powerful principles and practices can reverberate positively out into our lives. I love the movements we do in Nia. They train, condition and heal the body like nothing else. But what is truly remarkable to me is how we can take these principles, designed for a physical practice, and directly apply them to our work, our play, our chores, our relationships and our lives. Super cool juicy goodness, if you ask me.

If you go to the Focus Pocus Facebook page you will find several photographs and videos about our focus this week. Feel free to post any of your own!

EnJOY, everybody!

Dance on. Shine on.
