The head librarian where I work was excited to show me a book she ordered called: “Move or Die”. I can’t wait to read it. It is pretty clear where the science is going…
Last weekend a bunch of movers gathered to learn how to condition through movement with Nia trainer Kelle Rae Oien. The information was exciting, deep and rich. It has already helped me deliver both nia and MELT in a more powerful way.
The one take away that seemed most relevant to you the student is the fact that Nia and MELT work really hard at delivering results so you don’t have to.
Nia is based on 52 moves for whole body conditioning. Each move is designed to deliver health and fitness from your head to the tip of your toes. Your job is to show up consistently to class and enjoy moving to the music following to the moves in your body’s way.
As for MELT Method, Sue Hitzmann spent years using science and experience to find simple ways to make helpful changes in the fascia which supports, protects and stabilizes us.
I could tell you to roll around on a roller until you feel better. I could put on some music and say dance and condition yourself. Along with the fun would be habits and compensations that may not be harmful at the time, but may take you down a familiar path; to your habitual movement patterns.
The parts of your nervous system that fire together wire together. Nia’s 52 moves helps the body take a different direction from the habitual and find new connections without taking you away from the fun.
MELT targets specific properties of connective tissue to help you get to the root of discomfort or problem areas.
They are both deeply and carefully created based on the design and function of the human body-your body -and what it needs to be balanced.
I am in awe of how much work they have done to be sure you get results simply by participating.
Both Nia and MELT feel good. They empower.
They make you more mobile, flexible, stable, agile and stronger (and happier).
Especially if you can’t get to regular weekly classes, a retreat to learn and process is a true gift we can give ourselves. I am excited to be offering both MELT and Nia with Wendy Roman at our 3rd annual retreat on the Bruce Peninsula Aug 12-13, 2017 Registration is open. Email email@example.com for more info.
