Nia Envision Series

Jeff Stewart Photography

Join us for this empowering three class Nia series as we connect body, mind, spirit, emotion and community in honor of the New Year. As the light grows with each day, we will focus on clarity in what we wish to experience and embodying our creative seeds of expression.

Nia (nee-ah) is a path to condition, heal and express your self through movement and sensation. A dynamic blend of dance arts, martial arts and healing arts, Nia 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.

The class is an arc flow structure – warming the body, building to a cardio work-out then completing with cooling stretches. Nia is a practice which is also exercise for the brain and nervous system as it creates new neuro-pathways and challenges us to shed habitual or unbalanced motions. The non-impact movements are set to engaging music from artists such as: Thievery Corporation, Tosca, Ganga Giri and Adham Shaikh. Open to MEN & WOMEN of all ages and abilities.

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

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!
