Nia Awakening Series

Jeff Stewart Photography

Awaken your mind, body, spirit and emotions from winter’s slumber during this joyful four class Nia dance series. Nia is a unique, multi-faceted movement practice that arouses the senses, ignites creativity and refreshes the soul. MEN & WOMEN, all ages and abilities welcome! Previous dance experience is unnecessary.

A dynamic blend of dance arts, martial arts and healing arts, Nia is non-impact and recommended barefoot. The class is an arc flow structure – warming the body, building to a cardio work-out then completing with cooling stretches. Nia is also exercise for the brain and nervous system as it creates new neuro-pathways and challenges us to shed habitual or unbalanced motions.

Nia (nee-ah) is a path to condition, heal and express your self through movement and sensation. It is designed for any body. Balancing technical precision with free-form expression, Nia brings the body, mind, emotions and spirit to optimum health through music, movement and self-expression, guided by the sensation of PLEASURE.

Benefits include:
♥ Increased Agility & Stability
♥ Weight Loss & Strength Gain
♥ Calming of the Mind/Stress Relief

Mondays 7:15p-8:15p

Dance of the Shadows – a Movement Playshop Embracing the Mysteries Within

Join us for this incredibly fun, dance and movement Nia playshop led by Tamara Albright and featuring live DJ – Soma Jaya! As the days become shorter, the hours of darkness slowly increase. We are now transitioning into the season of shadows, and with it, an opportunity to delve deeply within.

Many women within the community experience pressure to “put on a happy face” and behave a specific way in their daily lives. While positivity, kindness and joy have their beautiful qualities, women are complex beings and experience a plethora of emotions beyond those of love and light. During this lively playshop we will dance, kick, block, howl, hiss and growl (just to name a few) – allowing the many aspects of our shadow selves to emote, express and be embraced.

You’re invited to dress in costume or however you enjoy expressing yourself. The most important thing is that it feels good to you and that you are able to move around freely upright and on the floor. We will dance barefooted to connect to the stability of the earth and utilize the agility of our feet. Please bring water for yourself to stay hydrated. *Please note this event will be held at a women only facility. Email infoatalbright-creative.com or visit Albright-Creative.com today to reserve your space in this unique and dynamic event!
