Friday 18-20: Look Up

Opening our weekend, enjoy an experience that brings the best of Nia and Yoga together.   Using a 4 part mudra ~ “Ground”, “Heart”, “Connect”, “Joy”.  With wonderful, deep gospel music, feel inspired to look up, grounded and alive, for a fully embodied ecstatic experience.

Saturday 9-10:15: Dive Deep

Super simple choreography brings a deliciously deep experience. A fabulous reminder of how most often (as it is on the dance floor so it is in life)  less is more. Enjoy how simplicity allows us to go deeper into our relationship with the music, movement and magic of the experience.

Saturday 16:30-18: Rise

The truth is, many things in life are beyond our control. What is within our control is how we respond. Through this somatic exploration, as a sensation scientist, delve into what holds you up, what pulls you back and what can get in the way of you fully participating in the dance of life. And then Rise! Rise up, Rise above, Rise beyond normal! Let your imagination flourish and your heart soar as we squeeze and release the connective tissue of the body through systemic movement.

Sunday 13-15: Light up
A love story with your body, heart, soul and community!  Let’s light up and celebrate all the joys we’ve experienced from the weekend together.  EnJoy this tangible invitation to wrap up your weekend, like gift wrapping a wonderful present. Light up and feel the glow extending as we step out…

 

Martin Karlbom

 

Since he was a child, Martin, has been curious and interested in eastern culture. He has been drawn to the way they see to the whole and that everything is connected together.

Saturday 14:30-16:00: Your Inner Universe

Our bodies are totally filled with life, movement and processes. We have a total universe within us. The more we dive in, the more vi discover the greatness within our bodies. Through the soft movements and stillness in yin yoga we go for an inner exploration. The more we listen, the more we learn. The more we learn how to support our selves and create health within. Lets dive into your inner universe and open up to connection, understanding and the strength to rise up.

 

Sunday 10:45-12:00: Tat Twam Asi

Ta Twam Asi means ”that is you”. Everything you see is part of you. Everything is interconnected and linked together. You need to go inside to find understanding, to come close to what is really true. We can see the world as is. We dare to meet our thoughts, feelings and perceptions without valuing them. Everything we do make a difference, for ourselves and the world. To turn inside is not the same as turning away from the world. When you get more intimate with your center, the inner world (atman) gets connected to the outer (Brahman). This class is a soft Yin Yoga workshop

 

Emma Stålvik

 

Nia has been part of Emmas life for 20 years. She is the co-founder of Nia Movement Center in Gothenburg and she is a Nia Brown Belt Teacher. She is also a devoted Yoga and Zumba teacher.

Emma is very appreciated for her spirited and dynamic classes. Her passion for music and movement and how that touches body and soul is a vital source of life and happiness for her.

”Nia is a life practice. Nia connects me to my body and my senses. It is a unique way for me to connect to the inner joy that is me. Its an exploration, a journey that goes deeper and deeper. Its a way for me to stay connected to my inner self and life.”

 

Sunday 9:15-10:30: The Shimmering of Presence

Your senses can only be felt in the present moment. Your breath is here now. The intimacy of music and movement creates magic. The felt sense of your body moving, the touch of the music, the currents within, the ebb and flow, the pulsing, the vibration in your body, your heart beating…. everything is to be experienced now.

Let movement, stillness and music connect you to your body, your senses, your sense of self. Together lets move into the shimmering of presence.

Saturday 10:45-12: Dive into the River of the Unknown

In this class we are going to explore the river of never ending possibilities. In the pysical, mental, emotional and spririt realms we go on a beautiful journey together. We will dive deep into the river of the things we do not yet know. Warmly welcome to explore with me.
