Our inner and outer worlds are sometimes filled with noise and stressors that can feel unsettling and disrupt our sense of peace. Meditation is a mindfulness-based practice that can guide us to a calm and centered state of being. Nia is a movement-based practice that allows us to consciously guide our body, mind, and spirit into increased joy.

In Nia, we practice the art of living meditation; noticing sensation, creating space for whatever arises and emptying so that we can be fully present in the moment.


Join Nia instructors Tai Velasquez and Jennifer Lucero-Earle for a combined meditation and Nia class. Explore stillness and movement, facilitated in a supportive and affirming environment.

‘Nia and Horses’ this summer!

By Randee Fox - Black Belt Nia Educator and creator and trainer of Nia and Horses ®

Deepening movement awareness with horses from a place of joy and confident physical comfort

Hello! I would like to invite you to experience a one-day Nia and Horses Training at my ranch in Sammamish this summer. I am offering two dates in July -  

Saturday, July 14 is now filled so registration for and Saturday, July 21, 2018 is open.

Learning and practicing the ‘Nia and Horses’ rituals helps us release excess mental and emotional energy and invites us to be in a safe place of grounded physical awareness through sensation. When horses sense that we are physically connected to our own energy and body and they read this as ‘grounded leadership’ and they are naturally more apt to connect and yield leadership to us and follow, allowing us to direct their movement in partnership.

There is a natural ‘coming and going’ of this connection to our bodies and as we become more aware and comfortable in our bodies while being with horses we ‘draw inward’ this ‘embodied leadership’ with more and more ease. The key is to learn to maintain and sustain this ‘grounded leadership’ via our own physical sensations, while in the presence of a horse. This takes time and practice to learn. 

 

We do this through a series of ‘connection rituals’, which are formulated from the The Nia Techniqueprinciples. They teach us to sense and track a multitude of physical sensations and settle into a place of confident physical comfort within our own bodies first. They are easy to learn, creative, relaxing, fun to practice and, over time, help us to move from physical sensation initially, rather than letting our emotional or mental energy take over.  

The ‘Nia and Horses’ rituals become lifetime awareness tools allowing us to:

• Access thoughts and feelings and move with them, without losing our connection to our physical sensations.

• Keep us physically aware, safe and healthy.

• Enhance and bring deep pleasure to our body and to the moment we are living in.
