Dear friends of NiaMoves,

As the entire nation resumes normalcy, we also have some great news to share with you!

Sarhia's Belly Dance classes and Houston Nia Collective relaunched in studio classes after a year of dancing via Zoom! And we are looking forward to the return of Jessica Garcia, founder of Chandra Yoga, kickstarting with it's monthly Restorative Yoga on August 7th and weekly flow classes on Tuesdays thereafter!

If you love to strike a move with pop songs, you would love these dance fitness classes:

-Choreography (Jazz and Heels) with Whylan Rucker - designed to provide clients with training in their dance style of choice. The sessions will focus on movement quality, flexibility, lines, performance enhancement and technique.

- DivaDance - nailing that one-minute pop routine with more class options and song choices, now available onsite on Sunday afternoons! Also check out the Diva parties with DivaDance Houston!

- Hip Hype Cardio Dance - now offering early morning workouts three times a week! With morning and evening options, and occasional Saturday jams, this Night Club Cardio inspired dance fitness dance party is bound to get your heart rate up and your body moving. @Kelli Griffin

Most of our teachers also offer online options, please join us, online or onsite, as we stage their return gracefully. We promise a safe, serene, and slow dance like experience that you won’t find elsewhere.

Until we meet again, be well!

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! This year, we have so much to be grateful for. Yes - despite all that...

I am grateful for new platform and technology available to keep us connected though physically apart.

I am grateful for the teachers and wise ones who continue to evolve through their services. We hosted many free or donation events this year and will continue to pay it forward with high quality offerings available.

I am grateful for good health and vitality. There is never a better time to practice self-care in all realms and I could do better in making it a priority.

I am grateful to have the income that sustains the loss of the studio operations.

I am grateful for the losses as well as the gains which brings clarity on what’s truly important.

I am grateful to continue my learnings in relationships - in some cases, bridges rebuilt and relationship mended, in others, losses with closure. Regardless, like an old friend said “I’ve grown up a little since then”.

Oh there are so much more...

What about you? What are you grateful for today, this month and this year?

“Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic.

Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.”

~Martin Luther King Jr.

I love this quote of MLK because it reminds me of the inherited order that LOVE is above anything and is the answer of everything.

We have somewhat lived in the domain of fear for the last few months. What we are experiencing right now is a collective outpour of GRIEF, expressed mostly in the form of Anger triggered by Floyd event, but escalated to a new height.

Everyone has the birthright join movements that aligned with their value systems and needs, but don’t be a victim of others hidden agenda. Be wise and look for answers within. What emotion monsters are you feeding?

Our desires of what had been removed from our lives due to social distancing had led to a deep craving of soul connections and emotional fulfilling activities especially when there is a sense of belonging.

I am doing my part to cultivate more positive connections. Sensing a need for a Community Circle this weekend to process what’s happening, sharing the concept of Six Human Needs, and tips on how we can stay centered through chaos. If you are interested please comment below.

Hi Nia lovers! I am teaching for Cambry tomorrow at 1030 and will be brining the Routine Beautiful. Great songs with a great message about stepping into something new. Hope to see you all soon!
Join us tomorrow, 2:00-4:30 p.m. as we wrap up a year of fabulous-feeling Feldenkrais workshops. Our holiday theme is 'Breathing Easy for Reduced Stress and Effective Action." Early Bird registration ($35) ends today - it will be $40 at the door tomorrow! We have refreshments planned AND a special sneak-peek at next year's workshop line-up -- very exciting. See you on the floor!
Sleep in on Sunday and still come dance with me! I’m subbing the 1030 class for Cambry. Any special requests?
Is there a class at 9:15 today?
Hi, Y'all! Due to Facebook weirdness, the Feldenkrais® event series of workshops shows as canceled -- but nothing could be further than the truth! It's time to register now for the next one, September 14, 2-4:30 p.m. The topic is "Core Issues: Strength or Limitation?", an introduction to the Feldenkrais Method. Full workshop description and registration via the link. See you then!
If you plan to come to the Feldenkrais/Back Pain Relief workshop tomorrow, please allow PLENTY of time to travel and aim to arrive even a bit early if you can. We have another weekend of "Carmaggedon," with all main lanes of the 610 West Loop SOUTH and two norhtbound lanes closed all weekend from I-10 to Post Oak. SO -- be advised, plan ahead, and travel safely. The workshop will begin at 2 p.m. Looking forward to seeing everyone!
There is still time to sign up for Saturday's workshop: "Back Pain Relief - Feldenkrais Method® Introductory Workshop." 2:00-4:30 p.m., snack and comfortable movements provided! Register now for $35 online at http://www.niamoves.com/feldenkrais.html If space is available, the price at the door is $45. You'll leave the workshop with a "toolbox" of self-care movements that *actually work." IT IS POSSIBLE to move without pain - Relief is just a workshop away. See you Saturday! 👍🙋‍♀️☀️
TOMORROW 6/8 Join us 2:00-4:30 p.m. for the next in the series of Feldenkrais Method® workshops with MaryBeth Davison Smith. The topic is Better Balance! No worries - we won't time how long you can stand on one foot, nor make you walk on a balance beam or tightrope. That would just be mean. Balance is a felt sense that helps you to appreciate symmetry within yourself (or detect it when things are "off,") as well as a skill that keeps you safe on your feet! $35 online registration @ niamoves.com/feldenkrais, $45 at the door if space is available! Come and learn what balance feels like, and how to improve it. UPDATE: as we say frequently in the Feldenkrais Method, "Organize yourself in such a way. . ." that you allow extra travel time to the studio. Houston Press warns that traffic this weekend will be a doozy! #theconstructioning
Join me next Saturday, May 11, for the next in our monthly series of workshops introducing the Feldenkrais Method. The focus for May is "Posture Without Pain." You'll learn why previous corrections either have not worked, or are so hard to maintain, and you'll feel your way to effortless, comfortable, beautiful posture. 2 p.m. - 4:30 p.m., snack included! Register online for $35 in advance at
I want to thank Isabelle for her Nia class. This was my first time taking Nia class and her gifts, really made my day and made me feel loved. Thank you Isabelle and I wish you all wonderful 2019.
Just finished teaching 9 classes in 7 days, and I feel great! Congratulations Michael Sweigart, Megan Freemantle, Meg Lauck, Julie Grob, Angela Mestre, Sarah Van Nieuwenhuise, Sandy Asch, Pam Perry, Mike Sieloff, Robin Ladin, Stella Linton, Angela Allen, Susan Hartman and Emily Gatlin -- just to name a few -- for stepping into the flow. We are fortunate indeed to have our beautiful Studio NiaMoves to rock our Dance of Life! See you next week, and we'll continue learning the routine Deep Dive. Until then, keep dancing!
Join yours truly tonight for Yoga + Meditation. Today is your opportunity to make your tomorrow better.
