A Nia Gram: Dance the Enneagram

with Kate Finlayson, Nia Faculty Member

A Zoom Playshop to discover and dance YOU!

Begin your journey of the Enneagram by learning about each type ~ and the movement flow around the symbol.

Be open to explore with curiosity, recognizing inner patterns that govern outer behavior, with compassion for all.

Discover yourself by moving these nine ‘personalities’ through your body to embody your full potential… balanced in

belly (physical)
head (mental)
heart (emotional)

Using Nia and Enneamotion techniques, we explore the qualities of sacred geometry by dancing to music that embodies each type.

We will end with Kate’s Enneagram routine ”A Nia Gram” for week 2 and 3 of the playshop.

Come ready to learn, dance and express your unique self!

This Nia Experience is for everybody.

Join Marybeth and Amy for 7 days of magic in one of only 5 Blue Zones in the world; a place where people regularly live to be 100+ years old. During our week we will enjoy movement classes, abundant sunshine, lively howler monkeys, and gorgeous sandy beaches. Many adventures and activities are available if you choose, or you can relax by the pool and take long walks on the beach. This is your week to unplug, unwind, and reconnect and recharge.
