Nia In Many Forms

Posted by terrepruitt on November 7, 2009

There is always something Nia going on. Often times visting instructors will host a workshop or two. When they are in an area doing a workshop they often tack on a class or two so that even if you are not going to partake in the workshop you still can do Nia with them. It is a great way to other teachers from all over. This weekend there is a workshop that I am able to attend but I was able to go to the Nia class that was held the night before the workshop.

.

It was an hour and a half class. Due to the huge amount of commute traffic from San Jose to Concord we missed the first 20 minutes, but we were able to jump right in and get a great workout in the time we had.

The visiting instructor was Winalee Zeeb. She has been doing Nia since 1991. She is a first degree Nia Black Belt, a Nia White Belt Trainer, and she has her own studio in Michigan called Heartdance.

The event is being held at The Big C Athletic Club. The class I went to was also at that location.  I had a great time moving on carpeted thick padded floor. We moved fast and slow, and experienced fire and soul. It was a great workout. Always amazing me because it never feels like exercise. I am always amazed when the class ends. It was the first time I had the pleasure of meeting Winalee. She said we did a bit of Aya and a bit of Velvet. I am not sure what other routines were in there, but it was a great time.

I often post events on my site so if you are interested in attending Nia workshops and events in my area check my site.

 

 

 

 

 

I was still trying to get in the swing of things when I decided to snap a few photos.  I was planning on taking more, but since we had missed a few minutes already I didn’t want to take time standing around taking the pictures, but I snapped it and a couple more just to give you an idea.

  1. Darn…don’t know if this posted already or not. My computer is being silly.

    I’m so glad you got to dance with Winalee. She is a magical creature! Thanks for posting!

    • Winalee IS a magical creature. Such energy, even though it was midnight for her, she was dancing will it all. It was awesome. I think they do the Plearn every year, so next year I will plan on going.

      Thank you for stopping by!

  2. Oooh, I wish I could have gone to this! I’d love to do Nia on a carpet. Oh actually I did do that once – in Walnut Creek – and it felt very comfy.
