Today the Rainbow Power Center was jamming with music, dancing, laughter, health, and abundance as 22 women gathered to dance in support of the recovery of those with spinal cord injuries. The event raised hundreds of dollars for The Lone Star Paralysis Foundation and was sponsored by Arizona Nia Teachers (including Razel Wolf who is also a SMSD teacher) and AZNiaNow. A portion of these funds will benefit Daniel Curtis, the son of a Nia Trainer, who sustained a spinal cord injury in May of 2011.
From the Nia website: “Nia is the original body-mind fusion fitness program – blending inspiration from dance arts, martial arts and healing arts to create a fun, pleasurable, health-enhancing practice for people of all ages and levels of fitness and helping us reconnect to the Joy of Movement!”
Flexibility, agility, mobility, strength, and stability. Joy, laughter, and the power of individual expression. Aerobics, stretching, coordination, technique, beauty. Nia includes it all, and teachers and classes can be found worldwide.
We were blessed to have such power and giveaway fill our space today, calling us all into the dance!
