Jam to promote community interdependence

A Nia CommUNITY Jam, “Dancing for hUmaNITY” sponsored by Nia Sacramento and Sierra Foothills regional teachers, from Sacramento, Nevada City, Placerville and Auburn, is Saturday, Jan. 19 at the Cozmic Café, 594 Main St. in Placerville.

The teachers are coming together to celebrate the power of community outreach through movement and to share the benefits of Nia, a holistic workout experience that combines martial arts, dance and healing arts designed to foster physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

This jam features a diverse community of joyful, spirited somatic educators, white belts to black belts, each leading selected songs for a total of 90 minutes of music, movement, breath and sound united in support of building community classes to promote health, fitness and wellness.

This event will be led by certified Nia instructors: Debbie Priest, Kelly Fitzgerald-Holland, Laura Linsteadt, Aimee Retzler and Erin Davidson from 1 to 3 p.m.

The historical Pearson Soda Works building is home to the Cozmic Café, a popular natural food café, which supports fair-trade and local sustainable organic farming, art, independence, wellness, community and cooperation.

This benefit is in support of World Pulse, a non-profit organization with a mission to uplift and unite women’s voices locally and to accelerate their impact globally.

Through its growing Web-based platform, these programs nurture community, by providing media and empowerment training to channel rising voices to influential forums, joining 190 countries to end violence against women.

Women are networking to find jobs, start new programs and businesses, launching women-only cyber cafés, and finding international speaking opportunities that are changing their lives and lifting their communities.

World Pulse is a nonprofit social media enterprise headquartered in Portland, Ore.

Although pre-registration is not required, anyone who is interested in participating in the “Dancing for hUmaNITY” Nia Jam and Fundraiser may reserve a spot by calling Davidson at 530-391-3669.

Nia Technique is a sensory-based fitness program that offers unique combinations of 52 moves that correspond with the main areas of the body: the base, the core and the upper extremities. Movement variety is enhanced with nine movement forms, three planes of movement and levels of exertion, to form an ever changing workout which empowers people of all shapes and sizes by connecting the body, mind, emotions, and spirit to move systemically, to improve balance, flexibility, agility, mobility, strength and stability. Classes are taken barefoot to soul-stirring music. Every experience can be adapted to individual needs and abilities. Movement is self-guided by sensation, to choose pleasure for comfort and joy of movement.

Nia is offered in more than 45 countries and has approximately 2,500 teachers.
