Susan’s Playlist Nov 3 – 6, 2014 ~ The Unofficial Guide to the Nia Principles: The Sacred Business of Your Body

P11 life-is-the-sum-of-all-your-choices

The Sacred Business of Your Body and Your Life is about setting your big picture intention and using it as a guide to align action. Principle 11 asks us to stretch ourselves into potential by getting clear on our highest values. It also requires that we take a compassionate look at the things you are hiding or pretending aren’t actually happening. The Sacred Business of Your Life allows us to see clearly and with a soft, open heart.

As we wend our way toward the end of the Unofficial 13 Principles, I’m creating a routine called Practical Joy for us to integrate everything we’ve played with over all these weeks! I’ve got most of the playlist together, I think, but I’m on the fence for the song for Principle 11. Help me decide: should we go with

Madonna’s Back in Business

or

Bachman Turner Overdrive’s Taking Care of Business?

Please vote in the comments below or on our Facebook page or just tell me when you see me!

And a few dates of upcoming events and happenings:

– 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 speakers and I’m 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. 
– Thanksgiving Nia is ON! What better way to start off the greatest holiday of all time with some mindful playful movement? Join me on Thursday, November 27 at 9am at acac downtown in the Group Exercise Studio for some seriously groovy gratitude. Bring your family and friends, or leave them home and get some time just for you. Song request line is open, so let me know if you’re hankering for something.

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

Dance on. Shine on.

    I vote for Madonna, the moves were more memorable and challenging, and the song just felt fresher to me.

    • Cool. I’m still working with the choreo for all the songs and this is helpful! Thanks, S
