Susan’s Playlist Oct 20 – 23, 2014 ~ The Unofficial Guide to the Nia Principles: X-Ray Anatomy

P10 supershero with capeWhat could be cooler than a week of super (s)hero X-Ray powers? Next time, though, I definitely want to wear a cape.

Principle 10, X-Ray Anatomy, gives us the tools to observe how we do what we do with kindness and make choices for re-alignment. We can do it with our physical structure and in our lives. As we move through the world we can observe ourselves and make adjustments that promote healing in all realms. A friend of mine says that all interactions are either positive or negative; there is no neutral. X-Ray Anatomy helps to us recognize this and move toward positive as we dance through our days.

For those who are interested in the exploits of this recovering English major, I had a new essay published this week on Elephant Journal about feeling irritated and annoyed. Thanks for reading and sharing ~ it makes a huge difference for a new writer!

And a few dates of upcoming events and happenings:

  • I’m traveling next week and am grateful to the stellar acac Nia team for covering my classes: Mon, Oct 27, 1045am – Loring; Tue, Oct 28, 9am – Kate; Wed, Oct 29, 1055am – Anne; Thu, Oct 30, 9am – Mary Linn
  • On November 2 at 2pm at The Writer’s House in Charlottesville, I’ll be reading from one of my essays along with some amazing writers. We’re celebrating the Charlottesville-based site Full Grown People, and the publication of their first book. All the details are here.
  • Did you know TED is in Cville? Come to the TEDx Charlottesville event on Friday, November 14 at the Paramount! I’ve been lucky enough to coach two of the speaker and I’m tremendously excited for the day of ideas worth spreading.
  • Students often ask if I teach classes outside of acac. I do! And one is coming up on Friday, November 21 at 6pm at Buck Mountain Episcopal Church. It’s a beautiful space and we’ll be doing the meditative and energizing routine, ChakraDancer. The event is free so please join us and bring a friend. All the details are here.

And finally, welcome home to Charlottesville’s newest White Belt! A big shout out to Rachel Horsely who returned from her Nia White Belt training this week! Congratulations, Rachel!

As always, please let me know how I can help more.

Dance on. Shine on.

  1. I love this post. Thanks so much for the incredible description of X-Ray Anatomy and for the song lists. Do you choreograph to each song list or is it more free play?

    • I’m delighted you enjoyed the post and the playlists. I do choreograph almost all songs and have at least one song of freedance in every class. Sometimes two. Often, I use choreography from a song I already know and adjust it for a new song of a similar tempo (8BC count). Let me know how I can help more. Thank you for reading!
