Pretty Yard

Posted by terrepruitt on August 11, 2017

I teach at several different places. I teach yoga at two different community centers and I teach Nia at one community center and two different YMCAs. This is what I consider the “backyard” of one of the YMCAs. It is so pretty with the different color trees. One day while I was waiting to teach class I noticed how gorgeous it was outside and I snapped a few pictures. When I am looking through my pictures I always see this and want to post it. I think I posted it . . . or one like it . . . on Facebook when I first took it. But I thought I would post it here as a Friday Photo.

    • It was also a gorgeous day.

      Nia (http://www.helpyouwell.com/what-is-nia.html)

      Nia is dance exercise done to different kinds of music. Nia is fun. Nia has a lot of variety, it includes nine basic movement forms. From the martial arts; T’ai chi, Tae kwon do, and Aikido. (So it sometimes has kicks, punches, and jabs.) From the dance arts; Jazz Dance, Modern Dance, and Duncan Dance. (So we do cha-cha moves and jazz squares.) And from the healing arts; teachings from Feldenkrais, the Alexander Technique, and Yoga. (So we focus on healing from movement, and alignment, and breath.) In one workout you can experience all those things. Yet no formal training or previous experience with any of those things is required in order for you to fully participate. Nia has been around a long time (34 years). As with most well rounded exercise classes Nia has cycles, there is a warm up portion, an aerobic portion, and a cool down portion. Nia is non-impact cardio, but don’t let that fool you. Intensity is not necessarily set by impact, you can get a very high intensity workout if that is what you desire. It is up to you. You are to be your own conscious personal trainer—-you decide what you need at that moment.

      Thanks for asking. I have a lot of posts about it in the category Nia (https://terrepruitt.com/category/nia/) and an entire website (http://www.helpyouwell.com/) about it, in case you want even more information. 🙂

      Again, thanks for asking! 🙂
