Return to Nia!

Tonight I went to my first Nia class since my knee injury sidelined me. (I got the permission of my physical therapist first.)

It was great!
In fact, not only had I forgotten how pleasurable it was, I was delighted by how quickly the moves came back to me. I had a bit of trouble with a combination step, but other than that, I remembered both the techniques and the patterns/rhythms.

Now I'm feeling pleasantly sweaty, with my whole body stretched out and alive.

Can't wait for next week!




Here's a video that does a good job capturing what a class can be like. Tonight's routine was much slower than most of this.


I'm also working on adding tai chi to my schedule. I like trail walking, but I'd like to get involved in more activities that get my whole body involved in a systematic way.

Now for a late, light supper and then some Buffy with Wolfling.

One of the basic tenets of Nia is that you only do movements that feel good. It makes Nia very different from any other form of exercise or dance that I've done.
