Susan’s Playlists May 16 – 19, 2016 – Playing with Play

we don't grow old... 051916

Research shows that play at all ages is what allows human beings to thrive. In Nia, we use play to train, condition, and heal the body. And we can also use play to help break habit, solve problems, heal relationships, and open creativity.

This week we used the No Words routine to play. You can find all playlists below or you can choose to listen to them by going to Spotify! You can listen for free at Spotify! Sign up for free, follow me at “susanmcculley” and you’ll find my public playlists ~ just click and listen!

And first a couple of announcements about upcoming happenings:

• AFRI-Cardio with Live Drumming on Friday May, 20, 4:25-525pm at acac Downtown, Group Ex Studio
Join instructor Christine Bostic and drummers Jason Epsie and Rosie McKay for AFRI-Cardio, a class that’s a fusion of West African Dance and a great cardio workout! The live drumming will amplify the energy and offer a more authentic, traditional dance-workout experience. There is no choreography. Instead the goal is to relax, groove to the rhythms and forget you are sweating. All are welcome!
Friday, May 20 at 4:25pm | acac Downtown Group Ex Studio
FREE for members! No preregistration required.

• Ageless Grace at Buck Mountain Episcopal Church in Earlysville with Sheila Queen ~ Every other Saturday, starting May 21, at 11 a.m. in Deese Hall
A wellness program for all ages and abilities, Ageless Grace combines physical activity, brain exercises, imagination, and a sense of humor with music to stimulate a sense of pleasure and well being. Movements address joint mobility, spinal flexibility, brain coordination, and more. The class is done seated, making it inviting for those who may have physical limitations or balance issues. There is NO choreography to learn. All you need are comfortable clothes and a willingness to try something new! Join us and bring a friend. Suggested $5 donations help pay for this class and support Buck Mountain’s Health & Wellness Ministry.

• Myofascial Release Workshop with Mia Hamza ~ June 19 at EDGE Studio
Mia Hamza is one of the best yoga instructors I have – and I have amazing yoga instructors – and her Myofascial Release Workshop is one of the best I’ve attended. In this 3-hour workshop, Mia will guide you on an exploration of your entire connective-fascia system. You will experience a complete, full-body myofascial release that will leave you feeling amazing. And I mean amazing. This workshop is open to all bodies who can lie down on a mat on the floor and may be especially helpful for yoga students and athletes who cross train. Please don’t miss this. $45 pre-register / $55 the day of the workshop. For more information, connect with Liz Reynolds at elizabethrey@acac.com

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