This weather is fantastic and I'm already enjoying our magnificent wildflowers and new growth after our plentiful rain! This past week we have had a fun time dancing to the new Nia routine Dream with a focus on Agility, one of the 5 fitness sensations of Nia. This week we will expand the focus and add a bit of a twist, playing with the elements of earth, wind, fire and water as a way to tap into the 5 sensations and connect to the 4 elements of nature that are the basis of life itself.
Sensing the 5 Fitness Sensations of Nia: Flexibility, Agility, Mobility, Strength and Stability. We call them FAMSS!!
Earth: Sensation of stability, fullness, weight, weightlessness, core, support, balance, rooting, connection with self, feeling outside/inside edges, breath
Wind: Sensation of flexibility, bending, off balance, on balance, controlling, out of control, lifting, swirling, openness, lightness, being, being effected, blowing, filling spaces
Fire: Sensation of agility, strength, heat, precision, flames, smoldering, intent, intense, sharp, confidence
Water: Sensation of mobility, fluid, flowing, circular, no edges, no beginning, no ending, coolness, sensation of dripping, floating, creation, rejuvenation
From a spiritual practice, I invite you connect to these 4 elements and what their potential can represent:
Earth: Representing the grounding connection to our source, being here, NOW, in the moment, supported, yet moving.Wind: Representing the swirling power that moves and changes all things.
Water: Representing that which gives us the power to move forward and remain receptive to all that is around us.
Fire: Representing the passion to ignite self discovery, fueled by curiosity and change.
