This Thursday evening wear a costume OR orange and black, and you will be entered into a drawing for a prize! I don't know what the prize is, but it is sure to be fun! We will be celebrating the day before Halloween with Mystere, a routine that uses music from Cirque Du Soleil - full of mystery and magic!
This week guest passes are half-off, so invite your friends to experience the pleasure of Nia at Timberhill. The pass must be used this week, so invite interesting people, people you love, people you would like to know better, people you would like to delight, or people you think would have a great time to come to the noon or 7:00pm classes on Tues and Thurs this week. The Tues evening class will be celebrating recent birthdays with Fantasia - no relation to the Disney film - but a whole lot of Yang fun!
Have you ever agreed to do something you really didn't want to do and felt an uncomfortable sensation in your gut? Have you ever noticed what happens to your face and posture when you see a baby smile? Can you feel what happens in your body right now when you think of a baby smiling? We are truly amazing blends of body, mind, emotions, and spirit and our thoughts, emotions, and movements all influence our state of health and well-being on a moment to moment basis. The attitude we bring to our ordinary activities of daily living can enhance our state of wellness and well-being or detract from them. Fortunately, we all have the ability to notice whether our activities are health and life promoting or negating by paying attention to sensation. The body, mind, emotions, and spirit all speak in the voice of sensation. Notice sensation. Right now. What feels good right now? What needs to shift into another position to feel better? Maybe your eyes need to look away from the screen, maybe your body needs a walk, or a dance, or a stretch... Move towards greater pleasure and move away from pain in your Nia practice and in your dance of life. It's all about sensation. Seek pleasure.
