Natural Awakenings - Nia Training with Shannon Mairs
By Robert Dean | Natural Awakenings :: September, 2012
"Nia isn't about how fabulous you are or how well you can move, but how you sense your body. It is about creating an awareness of where and how you are living in your body. You do what your body tells you. Every movement is self-healing."
"Shannon Mairs first experienced Nia, a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts and healing arts, in 2003. The mother of twins (then 3 years old), she was overweight and easily became winded and short of breath. She knew it was time to make a change."
