Holidays, Nia Hand Moves and Summer Events
What a great month June was. The taster at Heighington Fair was fun if rather wet and windswept – I’m very grateful to those who turned out in such wet weather to join me – and the “Loosen Up!” half day retreat was well-received. With a few tweaks, I’m ready to share it with a wider public. Get in touch if you’d be interested in attending or hosting something along those lines; we can have a chat about adapting it to suit you, your friends or your colleagues.
At the time of writing, I’ve just worked my last day in the day job before taking a break. Those who have read my story will know that if it wasn’t for Nia and the simple hand and arm moves, I wouldn’t be able to do the job at all as it requires quite a lot of lifting and moving around. So this month, as we begin the Nia Hand techniques in the “Nia Move of the Month” slot below, I’m reminded of how much I have gained from learning and sharing Nia and other amazing movement techniques in the last six years.
I have a new respect for the wonder that is the human body, its ability to recover, repair and heal itself and the link between mind and body which never ceases to inspire me. I hope that what I’ve been doing has helped and inspired you even just a little.
I’m not only taking a break from my job, but also from Nia classes for a couple of weeks. You’ll find changes to the normal class schedule below and on the Classes and Events page.
I’ve also included details of:
- The Sparklicious Summer Retreat day around the theme of “Being Brave”. It’s on 8 July. Contact Karen Hughes if you’re interested in joining her for the day.
- Two exciting events in Newcastle organised by The Healing Trust – a fantastic opportunity for anyone interested in healing.
Keep moving and I’ll see you next month!
