Take 5 – All change

I’m planning a few changes.

Nia logo new redFirstly, there will be no Nia class at Woodham Community Centre on Wednesday 28 September. It’s just for the one week.

Secondly, I’ve extended the Early Bird price for the “Move with Ease” session on 30 September to anyone who books on or before Monday 26 September and to anyone who’s a regular at my weekly Nia classes. In addition, if you book for yourself and a friend, you can both pay the Early Bird price. So join us, release the tension in tired muscles and relax completely. See below for more information and a link for booking.early-bird

Thirdly, I’ve decided to change this to a monthly newsletter/blog, with occasional updates in between if there’s a special event coming up or important information I need to give you. This means that the next “Take 5” will be out at the beginning of October.  This should give me time to mull over some changes I want to make to my website over the next few months.

And finally, the next block of Monday evening Nia classes will start at the Pioneering Care Centre on Monday 10 October 2016.  Check out Classes & Events  for more information and how to book your place.

Have a great week, see you at the beginning of October.

Nia move of the week – Inward Block

All the blocks begin and end in the Ready Position:  A or Sumo Stance, knees soft and spring-loaded, hands in a fist with palms up, elbows in, forearms close to your body. As you move your arms, imagine your head and shoulders are staying within an imaginary picture frame.

To do the Inward Block, from Ready, bring your fist and forearm across your body to block the opposite side of your face, while the other elbow pulls back. Keep your hips facing front.

The Blocks help build strength and speed in your arms and the core of your body.
