Dear dancers, supporters and enthusiasts!
This has been an amazing year for all of us, with our many dances, our new friendships, and all the special events celebrating our uniqueness and the Nia practice.
As you can imagine, there are a number of tools and approaches available to Nia teachers that help us to ‘move’ people in our training routines. One of the tools that I have been developing in my Nia work this past year is VOICE. Vocalizing in this sense means clearing the stagnant energy in the throat chakra, more precisely, the practice of verbalizing, expressing and even singing, a technique which in fact turns out to be a lot of fun. Since April, I have been learning a new method of movement + vocalization called Kinetic Voice (KiVo), and I expect to be certified to teach KiVo classes as soon as February. As many of you may remember, the founder and director of KiVo, Lis Addison, led an introductory workshop event in March, with much success.
Speaking of events, I wanted to mention how exciting it was to welcome in October my teacher and trainer Ann Christiansen for her first ever big Nia event in Geneva. Ann’s appearance has helped to open up new visions for Nia development in our region and I am looking forward to more events like that in 2018.
Please read on about what will be happening in 2018.
Save the dates and let’s dance!
