Susan’s Playlists Mar 21-24, 2016 – Choose (to be) yourSELF

I Choose by india.aire 032316

India.Aire’s song, I Choose nails our focus for the week. Even when we’ve been doing something for a long time, even when we’re good at it, even when others (and sometimes ourselves) expect us to keep doing it like we do it, we always have a choice. We can always make a choice to move toward alignment, integrity, authenticity.

You can find all playlists below or you can choose to listen to them by going to Spotify! You can sign up and listen for free, follow me at “susanmcculley” and you’ll find my public playlists ~ just click and listen!

It’s important to note that one song on the Radical Sabbatical playlist is unpublished. If you are interested in Father, I Know by Jamie Catto, please let me know. I have permission from the artist to share it. Just email me at sjmnia@gmail.com or ask me in the comments below.

Below are the playlists for the week, but first here are a bunch of cool things you might want to choose to do:

• Spring is Radical with Susan & Mary Linn, Sat, March 26, 9am Downtown, 1230pm The Square
Come experience Mary Linn’s new Spring routine and Susan’s 2012 Radical Sabbatical routine in two team taught classes on Saturday, March 26: 9-1010am Downtown and 1230-145pm at Albemarle Square! (I’ll post the playlist on Spotify!)

• Downtown Morning Nia on Tue, Apr 5 AND Thu, Apr 7
ACAC is refinishing the floor in the Downtown Group Ex Studio during the first week of April. Weather permitting, I will teach on the rooftop deck on Tuesday, April 5 and Thursday, April 7, both days at 840-940am. Due to the somewhat rougher surface of the deck, we recommend wearing light shoes for these classes. Classes normally taught in Studio A will be held as usual during this time!

• Earth Day, Friday, April 22, 545-7pm, acac downtown ~ Group Ex Studio
Susan & Mary Linn are teaming up for a special class celebrating our big mama, Earth. Join us for a playful exploration of how the elements of earth, wind, water and fire manifest in movement and in our bodies.

• A Spring Thing, Friday, April 29, 545-715pm, Buck Mountain Episcopal Parish Hall*, Earlysville
Join Susan & Mary Linn for an evening of movement choices. Spring can be a time of both riding the ebullient wave of upward energy and finding peace in the midst of all that blossoming and growing! The first portion of the evening will be a look at some of the basics of Nia movement and how each can be adjusted as to the needs of your body in the moment. Then we’ll practice those movements in a Spring Thing Nia class experience. Free to everybody (donations gratefully accepted for the Buck Mountain Health and Wellness Ministry).

* 4133 Earlysville Road, Earlysville VA 22936 ~ GPS will take you to the church; the Parish Hall is the small white building just past the church.

• dance. sit. write. draw. returns! Saturday, May 7, 830am-5pm
Living life as an artist isn’t a path for some rarified few, it’s our birthright. All of us. You might have lots of experience with dancing, meditating, writing, and drawing. Or you might have none. Spending the day blending these practices is a way of opening the channel of your artist self ~ giving it some oxygen and space no matter what your experience is. Join us for a delicious day.

I’m making a series of short videos about different reasons you might consider coming to the retreat. The first in the series is here it’s 3 minutes about how the retreat began.

Go to susanmcculley.com/workshops for the details and to register. Or email sjmnia@gmail.com with questions.

As always, please let me know if you have questions or how I can help more.
Dance on. Shine on.
Susan sig
