Niio Dance Roots
Body. Inner Connection. Vitality. Self.
22nd April - 22nd August 2021
EARTH SPIRIT – ENERGISE AND EXPAND
This course will reconnect you to yourself, your presence and being in the world;
your zest for life.
Renew your relationship to your breath and your body and connect to its innate strength
and power, through the energy and exhilaration of dance.
In this modern age, our busy ‘monkey’ minds have difficulty to settle. We are so caught up with our ‘to do’ lists that we barely give ourselves time to rest properly
and to relax deeply into our bodies.
‘Embodiment’ is almost becoming a ‘trendy’ word in the coaching and business world. If we are to be effective, we need to develop our inner somatic awareness
- to be ‘embodied’ - to stand our ground, to listen deeply,
to voice our opinion or to birth an idea.
And what better way than to do it through the joy of dance.
Through its creative movement you can find stillness and calm within. Even in the most lively and chaotic dance (a metaphor for life when things are turbulent), we can access a deeper inner calm.
We start from the basics and fundamentals so we can create
a solid foundation from which to grow.
Each month we look at one Sphere in Niio Foundation:
Yogic Breathwork techniques – Pranayama
Guided Meditations from various Schools
Subtle Body Energetic work
Deeper Dance Practices and Explorations
Optional follow on Exercises
This course is for both beginners and experienced movers. Even if we have danced all our lives, it is always good to go back to basics. When we approach with the Zen Beginner’s Mind, we are always a beginner.
If you are inspired to explore deeper into the body-mind connection, learn more about yourself and your body, and instil a moving meditation and dance practice as part of your regular health and wellbeing self-care programme
then this course is for you.
Feel more whole, have an increased sense of vitality, feel more surety and certainty in the amazing powerhouse that is your body. You may find you release some blockages, emotional or otherwise, if you commit to the ‘work’ of
allowing yourself to Play.
community and support - we meet every month for live Zoom meetings, with Q & A and opportunity to share
community - a closed fb group where we can have regular check in with each other
optional follow-on exercises
Every month you will Receive:
1 x 20 min – YOGIC and/or SOMATIC WARM-UP SESSION
This video will give a concise warm up that prepares you for the session, or can be done on its own as a general mini warm up and movement session for your body.
2 x 30 min – VIDEO DANCE SESSION
These videos will have focussed guidance to demonstrate new movement pathways, time for you to follow, and then with freer guided movement exploration after.
Downloadable as mp3's so that eg you may listen on headphones outdoors. This will allow you the opportunity to sense into your body without external influence or distraction, discover your own dance flow, and get away from the screen!
1 x 15 min – MEDITATION
The meditations are also an opportunity to go back to basics, of the body and the breath, as we begin to explore our interior. I give you simple guidance accompanied with beautiful music and subtle visuals to help you ease into the meditative mind without pressure or expectation.
4 x 20 min downloadable mp3s of the warm-up
