“My body is the shape I live in and it shapes the way I live.”~ Raquel Welch
Focus: Symbology…Shaping Consciousness
Intent: To increase body awareness and to become the artist, the sculptor. Mold and sculpt your body to get the body you desire!!
In Nia we have 9 unique movement forms which are blended together in to one powerful experience. Focus on moving your body using the energy and chemistry of Modern Dance… creating shapes in space. Molding and crafting, creating different shapes, symbols, spirals, circles, triads, lines, angles, geometric shapes, alphabetical letters, numbers to name a few. Begin to see every Nia movements, body movement/gesture in life as a symbol, kind of like a yoga pose or mudra but keeping the body shapes as a moving pose, energy in constant motion. Perceive yourself as the energy filled symbol, a visual language that speaks health, fitness ans wellness. Symbols have the power to penetrate and affect all the energy fields, realms simultaneous. Turn visual movement into an outward transmission of energy.
In class we played with:
1. Gross Symbology, which is whole body. Sensing systemic movement with all 13 joints and 20 digits. Imagining lights on every joint and then playing with connecting the lights to form shapes in space…similar to connect the dots!
2. Fractal Symbology, paying attention to one body part as a time….for example sensing the hand moving in webbed spaces as if it were a symbol of a beautiful Spanish held hand fan.
3. We played with being seen for all angles, as if on a Movie or TV set with camera’s everywhere. Claiming the space from all angles! Every angle connecting us to the space, transmitting the energy out…
Enhance the feeling of expansion, extension, balance and energy equality. Wholeness, ride in the centre of the energy experience and consciously make a connection to the balanced body and energy sensation that you feel. Every movement you make as you dance through life is an opportunity to condition your body and sculpt the masterpiece that is your body to what you desire… make healthy choices moment to moment….
I look forward to hearing from you about your experiences……crafting the body you desire
