Notes About This Event
Immerse yourself into the new Nia routine Touch. We'll take time to break down the choreography and play with the moves to help our bodies master them. We'll have the opportunity to slow down and really learn the moves, to examine what is happening, and pay attention to detail. This playshop will offer a new sense of depth to your Nia practice and help you to master this routine.
Touch takes you on a sensory journey through the body using four touchstones: skin, breath, eyes, and sound. Inspired by the “touch” of silence and sound one experiences when listening to a piece of music, the touchstones provide you with places in the body to anchor your attention as you dance a soundscape of mantra, thick beats, and vocal harmonies. Increase your awareness of sensation using meditative hand mudras, vocal sounding, physical touch, and by making a visual connection as you dance.
