New Nia Routine: Trio: The music of Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt
Finally (PHEW!) It is done. I hope it’s worth the wait 🙂
I wanted to explore the nine arms of movement in Nia with this routine. We will move to these great songs by legendary Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt (my idol). Each song reflects the movements, or my interpretations, of Yoga, Tai Chi (with some help from Nia student, Amy Shapiro, Taekwando, Aikido, Interpretive Dance, Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais Movement and Jazz. You may think its weird to put Jazz to this genre but hey it works!!
Here’s a preview of a few of my favorites for you to listen to to get in the mood.
Moving to Heal
Moving to Heal Nia is a slower, less intensive class with less standing and more done in the chair. Great for people with injuries or conditions that make it hard to participate in a classic Nia class. Also good for people getting back into exercise. For more info on Moving to Heal, see the info and videos on my web site or click here
Find some cushions, large books, yoga blocks, blankets, whatever you can use instead of bolsters and blocks. We make it work. For more information on Restorative yoga, check out my site, niawithlinda.com. It is a lovely passive practice that gives the participant relaxation and calm. Who couldn’t use that right now.
So here is how it works. It will be easier for you if you download the Zoom client for meetings for a desktop or laptop, or the app for phones and tablets.
At my website, niawithlinda.com, you will want to click on the link for the class and time you are trying to join. Otherwise you will be all alone!
If you have downloaded the client/app, the meeting will open automatically in that interface.
If you have not downloaded the app/client, it should open in a web browser.
You can join early and sit in the waiting room. No magazines but no doctors either.
I’ll leave the audio open till the class starts. If I leave the audio on, it interferes with my audio and we can’t have that! I’ll open it back up at the end. If you need to get my attention, you can raise your hand. It is an icon in the middle of the bottom of the screen.
If you need any techie help, call me 617-851-2738 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Find a little space in your home and be prepared to move and have fun.
Feel free to share these invitations to classes with anyone who needs it.
Love to all and stay healthy,
