If I Were Brave
"When the actions, of living in a body, become conscious and are made out of love, our actions turn into self-love, giving us the opportunity to heal ourselves and the world around us."
- Debbie Rosas
 
The quote above comes from a terrific article titled "Enrich Your Day with 7 Simple Little Steps" written by Nia co-founder, Debbie Rosas. These small conscious acts align with the cycles of a Nia class: set a focus and intent, step in, warm up, get moving, cool down, floor play and step out. Allow this article to serve as an invitation to bring elements of your Nia practice into your daily life. Enjoy!

I am going to bring these practices with me to the wintry northeast this week. I am headed back "home" to visit with my family over the holiday weekend. To the right is a photo of my mother and my great-niece. My niece sent me this photo after the first snowfall in the Bronx a few weeks ago. She cleverly wanted to point out that the snowman and my beautifully petite mamacita are the same height. You all do recall that I am the tallest woman in family, right? I think I will be eye-to-eye with the snowman! I am so looking forward to being with my family, despite the historic weather! This is apparently one of the most severe winters on record. It's supposed to be in the single digits with one day at -9 during our short visit. Brrrrr. I am going to have to do a lot of rumbling, shimmying, chopping and kicking to keep myself warm! 

I will only be gone for a few days and have lined up some spectacular subs for my classes. I am teaching tomorrow (Tuesday) morning and my subs are listed below. I love dancing with all of these women. They are dynamic, joyful, fun and beautiful teachers. Please come enjoy their classes. 

Note: There is no 11am Saturday class this upcoming weekend, February 14. Please see the note below about the FREE One Billion Rising Nia class-jam at The Dance Space in its place. It's going to be so much fun!
