Susan’s Playlists December 7 – 10, 2015 ~ Classic Thoracic

strong back cracks 120915
What do you notice after a week of focusing on the mid-back/thoracic spine? I’m noticing more pliability in my chest and more strength in my back…and some soreness between my ribs! I’d love to hear how the practice is reverberating for you.

Below are all the playlists for the week. You can listen to all the playlists for free on Spotify https://www.spotify.com/us/ ! Sign up for free, follow me at “susanmcculley” and you’ll find my public playlists ~ just click and listen! No matter where you are, we can listen and dance together!

Here are some cool things you want to know about:

• Embracing Darkness: A Special Winter Class with Mary Linn & Susan ~ Friday, December 11, 6-7pm at Buck Mountain Episcopal Church Parish Hall – 4133 Earlysville Rd, Earlysville, VA 22936 (it’s the small white building just past the church with a YOGA sign out front).

As the dark edges closer and closer to our doors, we have a choice about how to approach this time of year. We can huddle and steel against it, we can glitter and holly jolly over it, or we can embrace it. Please join Mary Linn and Susan for a special class of movement and music that invites the whole-hearted embrace of the darkness that is essential to growth and life. Rich instrumental, gospel and live vocal music by our friend and fellow Nia dancer, Guy Lushin, underscores the focus on peaceful mindful presence we can choose to cultivate. Pay what you can (proceeds go to the Health & Wellness Ministry at Buck Mountain Episcopal). No experience or spiritual practice needed. All are welcome.

• Introduction to Ageless Grace at ACAC Downtown Studio A, Thursdays: December 17 and 31, 1:30-2:15

Ageless Grace is a fitness and wellness program designed for all ages and abilities. It combines physical activity, brain exercises, imagination and a sense of humor with music to stimulate a sense of pleasure and well-being! It is done seated, making it inviting for those with physical or cognitive limitations, balance concerns, or healing issues. There is no choreography to learn. Movements are easy, natural and organic and varied based on the music! Come experience how we can create lifelong comfort and ease physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Sheila Queen, Ageless Grace Certified Educator, will offer this introductory class December 17 and 31, 130-215pm at acac Downtown, Studio A. On December 17, members can bring a friend for free.
