Two special classes in November:

Stress Down, Energy Up

Dates Nov 3 and 17, 3:00-4:00 – come to one or both

Did you know you can relax and build energy at the same time? Sounds strange, but it’s possible in a Nia class. Learn to notice your sensations and choose the ones that feel good. Practice moving without building tension, and finding a way to honor YOUR BODY’S way of enjoying music. This opens the door to enjoying moving even when you live with emotional or physical pain.

Instructor: Janet Hollander, 25+ years Nia  teacher.

Cost: sliding scale $5 – $15

Location:   Trauma Healing Project, on the corner of Patterson and 19th in Eugene,

Dance, Martial Arts, and Yoga All in one Class? – Watch for a repeat in early December

Fusion fitness has become popular both for the variety it offers your body and for the time efficiency. The Nia Technique was one of the very first programs to combine may influences into a single class. Sample how to enjoy both Eastern and Western influences such as Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, Jazz Dance, Modern Dance, Duncan Dance, the Work of Moshe Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique, and Yoga, all without needing any prior experience!

I’ve studied many of these movement forms independently over the years, as well as teaching Nia Technique since 1995. I am currently a member of the Nia Training Faculty, training others to share this program or apply it to enrich their own lives.
