Music & Other Goodness ~ Jun 10-13, 2019 ~ Mix It Up ..And Make It A Habit

Habit cuts both ways. We all have ones we would love to let go of and others we want to cultivate. The invitation of our practice this week is to make a habit of mixing it up by feeling the inextricable interdependence of stability and mobility. It’s true in our bodies, our work, our relationships, our lives: we cannot be creative, innovative, take risks unless we have stability to launch from.

Below are our playlists for the week. If you’d like to listen to the music, you can find almost all the songs on Spotify (you can listen for free)! As always, please let me know if you have any questions about any of the music we dance to!

And friends, I am always ALWAYS looking for new music. Do you have a song that you love to move to or that moves you? I’d love to know what it is! Please respond in the comments below or email me at sjmnia@gmail.com!

Before the playlists, here is the scoop on a whole slew of great things happening this spring and summer!

Nourishing Movement Classes at the Studio at Dancing Water
Please join me for Nourishing Movement classes at the studio at Dancing Water* on Thursday mornings for the summer, starting Jun 20 from 9-1015am. Classes are a mix of guided and unguided movement, meditation and creativity! Come join us in the trees by the river for grounded, flowing, spacious, nourishing movement. There is space in all upcoming classes so please go HERE to sign up!
* The Studio at Dancing Water is at 2370 Old Lynchburg Road ~ detailed directions at http://www.susanmcculley.com and via email when you sign up!

Saturday June 22, 9-12noon – Nourishing Movement: Earth, Water & Sky with Susan ~ ONE SPACE LEFT!
The first in the Saturday Nourishment Series! A morning of integrated movement, breath and meditation practices for all bodies and experience levels. Susan’s lightly guided teaching from the ground up – includes developmental movement, unchoreographed mindful movement, breath and meditation. Learn practices for promoting healing, strength and flexibility in body, mind and heart. If you like, from 12-2pm, bring a lunch and savor it on the porch, on the bench overlooking the river or on a rock in the middle of it. Bring water shoes and you could even sit in the water. $52.

Summer Solstice Nia Jam on Saturday, Jun 22, 1230-145pm!
Solstice Nia Jam on Saturday June 22. Kate has given the Team a thumbs-up to take over Studio A, ACAC Albemarle Square, starting at 12:30. Join Kate, Anne and Rachel to celebrate the wide open energy of summer!

Saturday July 27, 9-12noon – Moving & Writing with Light: Nourishing Body & Eyes with Susan & Rebecca
Susan & Rebecca offer a morning to expand your perspective on two things that everybody has: a body and a smartphone. The word “photography” means “writing with light.” A photo isn’t a copy of something— it’s a story written *by light*! And light is weaving stories all around us, all the time. Using the simple cameras that we all carry —the ones in our phones! — we’ll play with the stories of light around us and experience how changing our perspectives can change everything. Susan will weave movement and mindfulness into the morning to practice being with light & shadow. No experience in photography or movement needed, just bring a phone or tablet with a built-in camera and your body. If you like, from 12-2pm, bring a lunch and savor it on the porch, on the bench overlooking the river or on a rock in the middle of it. Bring water shoes and you could even sit in the water. $75. Register at http://www.susanmcculley.com/shop.
