Movement is the Medicine of the Future!

Standard

Nia 1

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease”. Thomas A. Edison US inventor (1847 – 1931)

Do you want to re-gain and maintain vibrant health until your last day?

When asked about the objective of NIA Dance, a Nia trainer replied: “To JUMP into our coffin!”

Despite the humor, this illustrates the purpose of NIA: To experience true JOY and Aliveness in our Body until we die.

A baffling concept to some who subscribe to the belief that death is a necessary consequence of dis-ease.
However, it is NOT necessary and natural to deteriorate in health and vitality when advancing in age. We require a paradigm-shift in our beliefs and also look much deeper into the factors contributing to ill-health.

Most of us are aware that nutrition and exercise are BOTH essential to good health. A number of studies suggest that MOVEMENT might however be more important than healthy nutrition in this equation!

Sitting down is the Plague of our times!

Therefore let’s enjoy the most PLEASURABLE, SAFE MEDICINE of our time: JOYFUL MOVEMENT !!!
Only positive “side-effects” –  JOY, Energy, Vitality, Mobility, Agility, Strength, Flexibility, Stability…!

Whether you can make it to a regular NIA Dance class or not Make it your priority to MOVE with Joy as often as you can!
