Explore the many facets of love through music and movement during this special Nia class. Nia (nee-ah) is the most fun way to connect body, mind & spirit, all while giving your heart a pleasurable work-out. The Nia Technique was developed as a radical alternative to high impact fitness and is pleasure based food for all aspects of your being. Nia is a synergistic blend of dance, martial arts and healing arts set intuitively to engaging music. The simultaneous movements improve coordination and create new communication between your brain and nervous systems (neuropathways). Nia’s loose structure allows room for individual creativity and vocalization and is an amped outlet to express a range of emotions from one moment to the next. Each deliciously edgy session warms the body from within, bringing you to a cardio work-out, then completes with cooling and grounding movements. You’ll finished feeling relaxed, yet rejuvenated and powerful!

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!
