Aya - Moving to Heal

Choreographer: Holly Nastasi
Release Date: May, 2018
Difficulty: Beginner

Focus and Intent:
Our focus is upper extremities, including the shoulder girdle, shoulder joint, upper arm, elbow, forearm, wrist, hands and fingers. We are connected to the world by the upper extremities in functional and expressive ways. Our intent is to enhance mobility of the upper extremities so we can feel better.

Aya is a Classic Nia routine. Every aspect of the choreography is designed to stimulate the sensation of Stability.
Stability grows from the ground up and is sensed as calmness in the entire body. As you dance, sense your muscles and joints moving in harmony. Make sure both of your feet move with ease, creating the Stability needed for the rest of the body to dance with grace and peace. Pay attention to your breathing; always seek relaxed breathing, even when exerting your body.
