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.
Come try the Yin side of yoga life. Yin yoga works on the yin tissues - also known as the connective tissues (fascia, tendons, ligaments). Connective tissue responds best to a slow, steady load which is why we hold the poses for longer. If you gently stretch connective tissue by holding a yin pose for a long time in this way, the body will respond by making it a little longer and stronger - which is exactly what you want.
Yin yoga is for you if you are tired and craving energy, or you are overstimulated and have too much energy. If your mind is over-active and your energy levels erratic.
