The Five Basic Principles of the Body’s Way

Posted by terrepruitt on August 5, 2010

In Nia there are five basic principles of the body’s way that we like to keep in mind. Listed here are just the highlights, for the details on each point you can visit the page on my website.

1—The Body Thrives on Dynamic Ease. Dynamic ease is somewhat comparable to muscle memory. When you are first learning a movement the challenge of doing so generally keeps you from being creative.

2—The Body Demands Balance. The body was built with balance in mind with body parts on each side.

3—The Body is Balanced in Yin and Yang. Both have a place in the body.

4—The Body’s Way Demands Simultaneous Mobility and Stability. The body’s joints allow for mobility and the muscles for stability.

5—The Body Itself Reveals the Body’s Way. Its very design instructs us on its use.

Also our bodies give us feedback both negative and positive. Both can be used to help guide our movements. Which ever is necessary Nia can help achieve the balance. Nia respects the body’s way and can successful assist in achieve balance in the body.
