Nia Dance Fitness
Wednesday 25 January, 1:30-2:30pm
9 week course
Join Nia practitioner, Claire Miletitch, for a brand-new movement course at Kingshill House.
What it Nia?
Nia - which means 'with purpose' - is a sustainable body and lifestyle sensory fitness practice based on the intelligent design of the human body. This is your opportunity to learn about this practise; how it was created, why it's available for every body, how to reconnect with the four parts of you; mind, body, emotions and spirit, understanding the language of Nia, finding your "body's way" to feeling better.
Nia is a unique blend of music and nine movement forms inspired by the dance, martial, and healing arts. It addresses the whole person; mind, body, emotions and spirit, and the participants learn to reconnect to body sensations - the body's voice - bringing awareness to the soft voice of pleasure and the louder voice of pain. The mindfulness and dynamic movement will leave you energised, mentally clear and emotionally balanced. Nia is meant to be joyful, fulfilling and healing. In movement we find health.
During the course:
You are invited to practice barefoot for greater sensory awareness enhancing balance and stability - and you will build on flexibility, agility, mobility, strength and stability while experiencing cardiovascular conditioning in non-impact movements.
The brain is stimulated by new movement patterns, music, and imagery creating new neural pathways in your brain. Your spirit is what makes you brilliantly YOU and unique. You’re invited to include and celebrate it in your own moves and personal expression!
This course is all inclusive, open to every body, regardless of age or ability.
Come and experience the benefits of movement!
Dates: 25 January; 1, 8 and 15 February; 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29 March 2023
Claire Miletitch is passionate about movement. She trained as a dancer at the Arts Educational School in London, and then followed her heart with holistic health and fitness, in and out of doors. She continued her education through the years with curiosity, focussing on anatomy, physiology and holistic wellbeing - facilitating people to reach their best selves through "listening to their bodies" and engaging their senses.
In 2018 Claire came across the Nia Technique with the founder, Debbie Rosas, who was visiting London. This unique body of work resonated deeply, and so Claire took the training to become a Nia teacher soon afterwards, without hesitation, as she could see how it could be accessible to all body types and abilities and be inclusive to all. Throughout the pandemic, Claire danced along the Cotswold Way raising funds for Alzheimers Association Research. She attracted people to join her in fields, parks and various other green spaces to move with purpose and feel better, more energized and uplifted. To find out more, please visit the Nia website.
