Nia: Music-inspired conditioning practice

Classes/Workshops Nia is a sensory-based movement practice for all body types, cultivating the joy of movement to integrate the mind, body, emotions, and spirit.

Throughout the class, the instructor gives simple verbal or postural cues for the steps. Choreography is interspersed with non-structured movement for a blend of form and freedom. Participants are always invited to tailor their experience to their particular somatic needs and preferences—that is, to move their body’s way.

Patty Griffin / John Fullbright Concert

Concerts All Ages Welcome Full Bar & Food Available Patty Griffin Bio: http://www.pattygriffin.com/ American Kid, Patty Griffin’s seventh album, is her first album of mainly new material since Children Running Through in 2007. In between, she made the Grammy Award-winning Downtown Church (2010), her version of classic gospel (though it featured three original songs). She also became a member of Band of Joy, the group in which leader Robert Plant and his cohorts meld British and American folk, rock and spiritual music. American Kid, much of which Griffin says “was written to honor my father,” returns to typical Patty Griffin territory, which is to say that it features a group of remarkably powerful, personal and unpredictable songs arranged and performed in a style that doesn’t entirely repeat anything she’s done on her previous albums while drawing on all of them. Yet Griffin’s catalog is among the most unified in modern popular music, because her singing is as unmistakable and inimitable as her songwriting… Cost: $30 Before Event $35 At The Door.

Throughout the class, the instructor gives simple verbal or postural cues for the steps. Choreography is interspersed with non-structured movement for a blend of form and freedom. Participants are always invited to tailor their experience to their particular somatic needs and preferences—that is, to move their body’s way.

Nia: Music-inspired conditioning practice

Classes/Workshops Nia is a sensory-based movement practice for all body types, cultivating the joy of movement to integrate the mind, body, emotions, and spirit. No previous dance or movement experience is necessary. Nia blends nine specific movement forms from dance arts, martial arts, and healing arts. A typical class may warm up with slow t’ai chi-like movements, then build energy in a playful jazzy style, reach an aerobic peak with kicks and punches, cool down with a modern dance flow, and end with yoga-inspired stretches and relaxation. Throughout the class, the instructor gives simple verbal or postural cues for the steps. Choreography is interspersed with non-structured movement for a blend of form and freedom. Participants are always invited to tailor their experience to their particular somatic needs and preferences—that is, to move their body’s way. Cost: First five classes free. $10 drop-in. $8 to $4 with class card. Region: Medford. Directions: Nia classes take place in the Sky Room of the beautiful Rasa Center, located near Asante Hospital and Centennial Golf Course. Phone: 541-482-2752.
