"Consciously recognize through body sensation the self-healing and fitness benefits you have received. Step out and into your next life experience with renewed health." - From The Nia Technique Book
When I share Cycle 7 of the Nia class experience and invite my students to Step Out, I always extend the invitation to take something from their practice with them. It could be the Focus, the Intent, or something that they discovered about their body and life during the class. For me, when I Step Out, I am often stepping into the next thing, carrying with me something from the practice I just completed.
So it is that I'm Stepping Out of teaching Nia at Move2Center for now.
I will be teaching my last Saturday class this week, August 1st, and will teach my last Monday evening class on August 10th.
Going forward, Melanie will be returning to her Center for Movement & Healing schedule and will be teaching both the Monday and Wednesday evening classes. The Saturday morning class will continue, with Ann and Melanie sharing that pleasure.
My husband and I are selling our West Seattle home and moving to the Poulsbo area. This has been in the works for a while, and now it is really happening! We are excited and ready to step in to the next chapter of our life together.
I need to take a break from teaching Nia during this time of transition, and of moving from one place to the next. That does not mean that I am leaving the Move2Center community. This extended break is meant to be a sabbatical with the prospect of returning with a clear mind and spirit, ready to share what I discovered during my time away.
(Also, Poulsbo is not that far away. AND this amazing invention called the Internet will let me pop in to classes as a student any time I want!)
As I Step Out, I take the love, compassion, and treasured friendship of Alyssa Aimette, Melanie McFarland, and Ann Nicolaysen with me on my next adventure.
As I Step Out, I take with me all the lessons I learned while dancing with all of you.
And now, I take the love, acceptance, and encouragement that you all have given me as I Step Out of teaching at Move2Center, and Step In to what’s to come.
With a Loving Heart and a Dancing Spirit,
Where our instructors share information and observations about what's going on at Move2Center Studio!
