Susan’s Playlists December 28-31, 2015 ~ Intent: Feeling First

intent feeling first
It’s the last day of 2015. We spent the week playing with using intent (the Why and How) to approach any activity (the What) including (but certainly not limited to) a Nia practice. The end of the year is arbitrary, of course, different calendars end on different days, but today is as good a day as any to recalibrate and set your gaze less on what you want to do but why you want to do it.

My intentional word for 2016 is
like mindful only with the heart (and with ART in the middle of it).
Please share your word or intention for the new year in the comments below or on the Focus Pocus Facebook page so we can encourage and support each other in our intention. Plus, I’ll send you some art love to play with if you leave a comment! ❤

Below are the playlists for the week. You can listen to all the playlists for free on Spotify ! 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:

• Winter Nia Jam: Spiritual High with Anne, Mary Linn & Susan ~ Friday, January 22, 545-7pm at acac downtown
We are returning to the music and focus of a long-ago Nia routine originally created around 1995 by our teacher, Carlos Rosas. Together, we’ll create a new take on the music, movement and magic. Free for members and members can bring a friend for free!

• dance. sit. write. draw. Saturday, January 23, 2016 – Still spaces available!
We’re dancing, sitting and writing again and this time, we’re drawing, too! Join me for a day of exploration at the intersection of movement, stillness and creativity. Find all the information at and register at on

As always, please let me know if you have questions or how I can help more.

Dance on. Shine on.
A Happy and Healthy 2016, everybody!
