Relax into Personal Power - Kansas City

First Degree Black Belt Nia teacher Jason Alan Griffin (JAG) is coming to Kansas City and teaming up with Brown Belt Nia teacher Marcelle Rudnick to present a sensational workshop.

Relax into Personal Power

Do you like the idea of your own Personal Power?
Would you love to be able to increase your power by relaxing?

Using JAG's latest routine, Frankie Say Nia, which is a fun, quirky and exhilirating blend of songs from the "New Wave" musical movement of the early 80's, JAG and Marcelle intend to teach how by using our Arms and Hands and the sensation of Touching, we can increase our own Personal Power during Nia classes and out in the world, as well.

Check out this video showing JAG in his home in Seattle as he plays around with some of the music and movements that you'll see in his Frankie Say Nia routine.



In the Kansas City workshop, Marcelle will show us how we can increase our ease and power by sensing our hand and arm movements, and especially by tuning into our sense of touch. It will be an enlightening lesson by a local teacher who loves the work of Nia for its combination of magic and power.

And then JAG will bring what we learned into the context of the Nia routine, Frankie Say Nia.  He will break down all of the moves in the routine while we discuss all of the opportunities to use what Marcelle taught us. What we will learn and practice is a basic philosophy of the Nia technique: That as a student you always have a Choice! And Choice is what allows each person in class to have whatever experience they want and need.

As we go through the details of the routine, we will discuss the ways in which you might personalize the movements. And we'll see how each choice you make regarding how you personalize the movement in class will help guide you toward having your best experience. In this way, you are in control of what you get out of class, and in Nia we call that your Personal Power.

The focus of the routine is on the Creative Arm and Hand Expressions and the Intent is to Relax into Personal Power. We'll have lots of fun and discoveries along the way.

No experience is required; we will give you everything you need to enjoy your Personal Power right away.
