NIA CLASSES
 
NIA - Moving to Heal
 Ongoing Classes
 
Mondays and Fridays ~ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Join Phyllis Brzozowska for this fun class that is an easy way to get moving that anyone can do.
 
With music and gentle guided movements, NIA invites you to dance and move in ways that feel good to you, deeply connecting to yourself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. NIA draws on movement forms of dance, martial arts and healing arts such as yoga and Feldenkrais. It's basic concept is that through movement we find healing.  
   
No prior experience necessary. Wear comfortable, easy-to-move-in clothes. This is a "drop in" class and no pre-registration is required. 
   
Suggested love offering: $10.00 per class.
 
Phyllis Brzozowska is a member of Unity of Portland and a Black Belt level NIA teacher.

10 weeks: Sept 30 – Dec 9 (Off for Thanksgiving week)

Course fees: $210.00 (Payable in 3 Installments, if needed) + $10.00 for Student Workbook
