Nia Dance at the Arboretum: An Embodied Movement Experience
April 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
$95 – $110
A class with Lisa Zahren, Mindful Dance Instructor
Using gentle, easy-to-follow guidance and open, free-flowing movements, we will experience the Morris Arboretum with all of our senses through embodiment practices, dance, and mindfulness. This experience invites you to dance and move in your body’s way. All bodies celebrated and welcomed.
Each of the five sessions will meet at the Visitor Center and begin with a short, mindful walk to the location for that week and will be followed by guided movement and some stillness meditation to open all the senses and connect with that area of the Arboretum.
Lisa has been teaching embodied movement classes using the tools of the Nia Technique for more than a decade, including classes for cancer support groups. Nia combines elements of martial arts, yoga, mindfulness, and dance to create a movement practice that balances and energizes the body. She is also a teacher-in-training/apprentice through Open Floor International, a conscious dance practice.
