Join me if you would like to gain:
Energy and Vitality
Feel vital and alive as you rejuvenate. When we dance all of our physical systems get a workout: our fluids flow better, we flush out toxins, we get less pain; faster recovery times from injury, a stronger immune system, better hormone function
Expand your movement reach and repetoire, with new structures and frameworks to support your movement, both in your dance and externally into the world. Have new certainty within yourself and confidence in your abilities, as you become more comfortable in your own skin, and gain a sense of wholeness and connection within
Improved mobility gives a sense of ease and freedom in our bodies. In addition we get an energy boost which means that we relax and rest better. Also enjoy lightness and laughter as you commit to the ‘work’ of allowing yourself to Play
Each week we cover the following:
- how and where our movements begin
- exploring our kinesphere (the spherical space around our body, as created by Rudolf Laban), how we move in space, and where to
WEIGHT AND BALANCE
- finding internal support to hold us, and give us confidence, to step out with surety and lightness
- we explore a myriad of different ways of moving and travelling across the floor
- we look at our qualities of movement, which can include speed, energy and flow of movement
- we look at moving to different rhythms and beats
- we look at structure and shapes, patterns and pathways
Is this course for me?
If you would like to feel more confident about moving and dancing, to lose self-consciousness and enjoy being in the moment, this course is a perfect foundation for you. You will receive guidance on basic dance principles to support you, new ways to think about moving and ideas to open and inspire your imagination. Rather than shy away from social situations where there are opportunities to dance, you will become part of the celebratory spirit of the event!
Movers and Groovers
This course can also be for confident movers. Maybe you love to dance, but have never had formal lessons, and would love to learn some fundamentals to enhance your movement. You may find that you always go to familiar places, and this course may help you to find new ways to move. You may also learn a whole lot more about your body and yourself in the process!
Each week you will receive:
10 mins MODULE INTRODUCTION VIDEO - here I introduce the main focus for the week, and relevant bodymind information
10 mins GUIDED WARM UP VIDEO - This video will give a concise warm up that prepares you for the session, or can be done on its own as a general mini warm up and movement session for your body.
2 x GUIDED DANCE SESSION VIDEOS (20 mins /15 mins )
These videos have focussed guidance to demonstrate new movement pathways, time for you to follow, and then with freer guided movement exploration after.
GUIDED MEDITATION VIDEO - The meditations are also an opportunity to go back to basics, of the body and the breath, as we begin to explore our interior. I give you simple guidance accompanied with beautiful music and subtle visuals to help you ease into the meditative mind without pressure or expectation.
REFLECTION EXERCISES - these may be questions that you can reflect and journal on, before, during or after the module
60 -90 mins LIVE ZOOM SESSION
Every week we meet up live over Zoom to have a check in, movement and dance time together and Q & A! We get to all know each other over these weekly meets and it is a real opportunity for sharing and support.
All Silver and Gold course members can interact with each other in the community chat that is part of the actual course site (off facebook). Bronze members can join the facebook group Niio Dance Foundation to stay in touch, connect and to ask any questions etc (this is because other course members will have met in the zoom sessions and respects an element of privacy and continuity ).

7 x 10 minutes Warm up high quality WAV/MP3s
Each warm-up will be downloadable so that you can really tune into your inner world as you warm up.
7 x 20 minutes Dance high quality WAV/MP3s
7 x 15 mins Dance high quality WAV/MP3's
Each dance video will be downloadable so that eg you may listen on headphones outdoors. This will allow you the opportunity to sense into your body without external influence or distraction, discover your own dance flow, and get away from the screen

Each meditation will be downloadable so that you can really tune into your inner world as you meditate
