What is Nia? Done barefoot to diverse and inspiring music, Nia is a transformational movement practice that teaches you to LISTEN, EXPRESS and CONNECT with your mind- body-spirit both inside and outside of the studio. Nia draws from dance arts, martial arts, and healing arts to create purposeful movement that will help you compassionately condition. Nia is a practice that suits people of all walks of life, ages and fitness levels. It is for those who wish to SAY YES to the sensation of purpose, potential and possibility. DANCE YOURSELF FREE Wednesday and Friday mornings From 8:15-9:15am.
While a hip opening posture may feel intense in the moment, you always feel so much better afterwards! Practice starts with a heat building, hip & thigh opening sun salutation sequence, then moves into a series of hip openers where you will spend time breaking down and exploring the postures deeper.
5/13- Arm Balances
This flow class will incorporate techniques in standing poses that will directly apply to the upcoming arm balance. Several arm balances will be incorporated into class, with more and less advanced modifications. We keep fluid movement in this practice while learning and preparing our body for the next step.
In this class we will go over techniques that will bring joy and ease to your back bending practice. Those that are less flexible will focus on techniques to unlock tension. Those that have an established back bending practice will be able to take themselves to a whole new level using precision in their approach
The inverted postures of yoga are some of the most beneficial of the asanas. We will play with headstand, forearm stand, handstand, and more. You will be guided through alignment, technique, proper modifications, and feel how to develop the power in your core strength. Learn to use the wall, or a buddy, as a way to continue practicing inversions beyond this class. Let go of the fear, we are here to support!
Each class 12-2pm
$35 each or all for $100
Alison’s classes follow the teachings of Kundalini Yoga & Meditation as taught by Yogi Bhajan. They incorporate a range of exercises from lively warm-ups and deep stretching to heart-centered meditations, breath work, and chanting. Her teaching is grounded in the notion that yoga should be accessible to all, and that its purpose is to better enable us to connect to ourselves and each other in our wholeness. With a playful combination of warmth and soul, Alison’s passion is to help you experience this for yourself in a comfortable environment that both challenges and inspires.
