Groovin' the Nia Technique® with Groove & Wellness.




HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

There's a saying, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." Tambien there's a saying, "It's a Small World."  BB, believer of Twofers, knows that this is the combinacion of the two and that the S Sisters brought the Nia Technique® into her life for a purpose. 

The Nia Technique




Y que exacto is the  "Nia Technique® "?

Combining dance, martial arts and mindfulness, Nia tones your body while transforming your mind. The practice draws on the chemistry of nine movement forms:
  • Martial Arts- Tai Chi, Taekwondo and Aikido
  • Dance Arts- Jazz, Modern Dance and Duncan Dance
  • Healing Arts- Yoga, the Alexander Technique and the work of Moshe Feldenkrais®
The unique blend of these nine movement forms along with Nia's 52 moves (27 base moves, 7 core moves and 18 upper extremities moves), give the body an opportunity to experience movement variation that brings health and vitality to every body part, muscle group and joint.



Ok Beautifuls, that's the intro to Nia, now let's introduce you to  our instructor Valerie Sanchez.



As Babushka had mentioned in the principio, this is a twofer. This small world has brought back to BB's eldest, Cristyl's Corazon, a highschool friend from the cheerleading team and a new maestra in movement to Babushka.  Because BB doing a lot of movement now?  JU SO FONII!!  Hopefully ahora with Nia and Valerie this will change.


And why is Babushka thinking classes with Valerie will make a diferencia? Y'all know BB; it's all or nada.  The same can be said of her classes.  Mind,Body,Soul, all are incorporated. Doubting this can be done during a session?  Aqui tienes some sentiments said in a class we attended -

"It's your style. Take your happy feet somewhere."
"Heads shoulders knees and toes. And everything in between!"
"Ready? Be the heart beat."
"Claw it. Sense your nails."
"Use the energy of Tai Chi."
"That intensity that makes you unique."
"Any moves of pleasure,comfort, whatever your body desires."
"Super deserved, super earned. Give your body full unconditional love and gratitude."
"Toes, knees, hips,spine side arms unfolding of skeleton towards standing."

Y lo fisico? Can one really have a metaphysical mambo, combining all?



Vieron? Escucharon? It truly can be all in one, for everyone. 
 If in Tallahassee, nearby, or just visiting, here is  Valerie's schedule
