iBODY Aware – Feldenkrais

Through gentle but powerful movements Feldenkrais develops your attention and your ability to sense your own movement in order to improve it. It is deeply relaxing and healing. It will lead to greater ease, ability and elegance in whatever you do. In class students lie comfortably on pads on the floor, sit or stand and follow verbal movement instructions that grow in complexity from the beginning of the lesson to the end. This work can be transformative at all ages and stages of life.

Feldenkrais students notice:

  • more freedom in the breath.
  • self-development and wellness.
  • stress relief.
  • less tension, fatigue and pain.
  • increased joy in life.
  • better coordination of intention and action.
  • increased creativity.

Feldenkrais® lessons are not like traditional exercise or therapy. They offer a new way of learning about how you move, and how you move through life. So whether it’s playing music, hiking on a trail, or picking up your grandchild – the Feldenkrais Method can help you to create better quality in everything you enjoy.

Nia ™

Nia is a unique fitness practice that combines elements of dance, martial arts, and healing arts to create a holistic mind-body workout. In a Nia class, participants move to a variety of music styles, including world music, pop, jazz and electronic beats, allowing them to explore and express themselves through movement.

Nia classes focus on incorporating natural movements and fluid, flowing transitions, promoting a sense of ease and joy in the body. The movements are designed to be adaptable to all fitness levels and body types, making Nia accessible to everyone.

Participants are encouraged to listen to their bodies and move in a way that feels comfortable and enjoyable. This emphasis on self-expression and body awareness creates a non-judgmental, supportive environment where participants can feel free to let go and have fun.

In addition to the physical benefits of improved cardiovascular fitness, strength, and flexibility, Nia classes can also have a positive impact on mental and emotional wellbeing. The practice incorporates mindfulness and breath awareness, promoting relaxation and reducing stress. Nia movers report feeling more energized, grounded, and centered after a Nia class.

Whether you’re looking for a fun and engaging workout, a way to de-stress and unwind, or a creative outlet for self-expression, Nia classes offer something for everyone. Join us for a class and discover the joy of movement! It’s all about what it feels like, not what it looks like. Nia is for every BODY and in Denver, Nia is at iBODY!
