Creating More Balance in Your Life: A Workshop of Gentle Yoga and Intro to Internal Family System Model with Diane Simpson and Denise Pickering. Saturday July 7, 4-6PM. Troy Studio  Join Diane Simpson and Denise Pickering for a workshop designed to explore ways to create and sustain more balance in our lives. This offering will offer mindfulness practice, gentle yoga and an introduction to the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model developed by Richard Schwartz, PhD. The IFS model allows one to be able to recognize and understand aspects of oneself that can often seem in opposition to one another (e.g., “part of me really knows that I will feel if I go to yoga class and another part just wants to stay on the couch and watch Netflix”, etc.). Working with these seemingly opposing aspects of ourselves in a compassionate, creative and curious manner, we will investigate what takes us out of and what is needed to bring us back into our own personal state of balance.  Cost: $40.  For more information about the workshop and instructors, click here.

Nia Dance for Beginners: Four-Week Series, Instructor Diane Betts.  Tuesdays 9:30 - 10:45AM, July 10 - July 31. Albany Studio.   This Four-Week Series is an introduction to Nia Dance for those who are new to it.  Nia is an eclectic, expressive fitness fusion dance program. It combines dance, martial arts and mindfulness. Based on the intelligent design of the body, each Nia class asks the individual to engage the senses and listen to the body. In this way the dancer is able to discover and explore individual movement expression and unleash their creativity.

Nia uses a choreography based on 52 simple moves taken from the dance arts, martial arts, and healing arts to engage body, mind, emotion, and spirit. It is a 60 minute class that is non-impact, practiced barefoot, and adaptable to individual needs and abilities.

Cost $50 for the series.
