When joy is present, the body and mind feel alive, healthy and fit. On Saturday March 17, 2012, Amy Lademann co-owner of Beyond Motion Studio along with certified Nia instructor Kristen Coury will be hosting a One-Day 90‐minute “Nia Playshop” at Beyond Motion to show participants how to explore the sensation of JOY through movement. This “playshop” will begin and end with an energy/meditative opening and closing, creating safe space in which to work. This technique will teach you how to connect with your body on an entirely new level. The benefits of Nia, the 7 cycles, 52 moves, and the theory behind using Nia as a form of fitness, self-healing and expression, will be explored.

Nia (pronounced Nee-–‐uh) is a fun, energized, dance-–‐filled cardio class that combines moves from Latin and modern dance, martial arts, and yoga. Whether this is the participants’ first Nia class or 50th, this workshop is for everyone. Nia encourages exploring the joy in moving one’s body today. It does not ask us to push ourselves into pain, or go where our body just won’t go. It works with our bodies, and allows us to stretch and strengthen, beyond limits.
