#85 on my 101 list ~ Teach a Nia Class

I am so excited to say that today I taught my first Nia class. Shannon was kind enough to head out to a studio with me and play. We had a fantastic time. The studio is in a place I just adore. It's a central Toronto location and there's always so much going on. We had a kids theatre group rehearsing beside us when we went in and when we came out there was a lecture going on in the same location. The people are nice and helpful and the location is full of life. I feel so at home there.

And I feel at home in a studio.


What a beautiful place to explore your dance and reconnect with your body. Nia is such a gift. For those of you who haven't experienced Nia, it is a movement practice that is for any body and any fitness level. Nia draws on 9 movement forms in the dance arts, martial arts and healing arts. It is a holistic workout that involves your body, mind, emotions and spirit. It helps you connect to your body's way of moving, and it is transformative . I'll be sharing Nia at just Be... Connected and I really look forward to dancing with you

Today it was a joy to dance with Shannon. Afterwards we just had to go out and celebrate.

Hellooooooooo Jamie,
Thanks for this story. Sisters are one of the best inventions ever. I am really intrigued by Nia. You are really a great ambassador. I even looked it up here in my new city -- now I'll wait a month or two before being so bold as to....

Also, thanks for the welcome back to Blogish Land. I'm slowly making the rounds to visit my friends and mentors.

Absolutely amazing Jamie! It's so wonderful to see the "dancer you" I remember so clearly and beautifully in the present again. You are definitely at home in a studio. Did you like doing the class? How did it go? Oh, I want to hear everything, LOL.
