Back in March our friend and First Degree Black Belt Instructor Jason Alan Griffin shared a lovely routine with us called Blue Earth -- and it blew us away. Immediately students asked whether Move2Center teachers would have the opportunity to embody and share it.
Well, Jason is offering an opportunity to learn Blue Earth that's open to everybody. Learn it for your own enrichment...and if you're a Nia instructor, embody and share it with your students!

Here's an excerpt of from Jason's blog post describing Blue Earth:
"Blue Earth was created as a very special project initiated by JAG in July of 2017. His idea was to enlist Nia teachers from all over the globe to collaborate via electronic media on a brand new routine.
The focus of the routine is on The Base and the intent is to bring Stability to our movements by touching the Earth.
...Students are saying that they love the routine and really appreciate all of the opportunities to settle into stability through focusing on the Base: the Lower Extremities. And while the focus on Stability offers an opportunity to self-heal, there is also great opportunity for a good work-out. This routine leaves students with an open, expansive feeling."
