Tag Archives: Dancing Water

Speaking of water and oceans and surfing, work on the Octabusy book continues! Here’s the latest on the front cover.

The practice we do together is about sensation: allowing ourselves to feel whatever is arising and then responding as skillfully as we can. Sometimes, this goes smoothly, sometimes not. Sometimes we surf the sensation effortlessly. Sometimes we get pitched ass-over-teakettle off our surfboards. It’s all part of the practice.

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, some announcements of things that are happening!

I’ve started a waiting list for the full classes and there is still space in Jun 13 & 20). Classes are my mix of guided and unguided movement, meditation and creativity!

Class + Pop Up Pot Luck at the Studio at Dancing Water on Jun 13
On Thursday, Jun 13, come to Nourishing Movement class at Dancing Water and stay for a Pop Up Pot Luck! Nourish yourself with movement, then bring something nouishing to share (or bring your own lunch if you’d prefer) to enjoy together on the deck, the porch or by the river! Water shoes and/or sturdy walking shoes might be a good choice if you’d like to go down the trail to the river!
