One of my favorite NIA instructors...I love her beautiful energy, inspiration, guidance and friendship. Sarah is genuine and authentic which I love most about her, plus she can just some moves!
Love your new page. So wonderful to dance with you today! 🥰
I’ve been a student of Sarah’s for two years now, and as sappy as it sounds, it brings tears to my eyes when thinking of the words to describe her and her teaching. My number one word is AUTHENTICITY : she comes to every class with her heart wide open and ready to bring her best and serve each and every person in that room. Her PURPOSE & PASSION in this practice is palpable, and her sense of BELIEF in the value that Nia brings to our every layer of life can be felt strongly every class. She has innate, powerful teaching abilities - I feel blessed to live in the same town as her and have her as my teacher!
I so love and appreciate who you are and how you are as a Nia teacher.
Thank you for YOU, Sarah.
😊🙏💗

Somatics Pop-up Classes — inSpirit 09/10/2021

Somatics Pop-up Classes — inSpirit

Learn to enhance your sleep by finding true rest.

Throughout our lives our bodies often hold onto tension in our muscles. As that tension accumulates our muscles work day and night burning energy to hold onto those muscle contractions. In short, many of us are not truly at rest when we sleep and wake up tired or fatigued. With Somatics we can retrain our muscles to release all that effort and experience a new relationship with sleep.

In this class we will work with a whole-soma (mind/body) approach to deeper relaxation, easing your muscles and calming your nervous system. I will also share a short guided relaxation at the end of class to leave you ready to roll right into bed.

Whether miraculous blessings and/or seemingly s**t things are happening, the Divine is ALWAYS collaborating with us. There are abundant signs of guidance and support when we're aware, slow or desperate enough to notice, trust and act in alignment with It 👁.

i’m grateful to have recently been desperate enough to SEE some REALNESS that i had missed and denied before 😳😂, and i’m thankful to be reminded that the Divine is always with (in and around) me, inviting me to transcend limitations bound to ego, attachment, fear, space and time.

"Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness." (Eckhart Tolle).

We're given only what we're truly CAPABLE of facing. i’ve been given some circumstances FAR BEYOND what i THOUGHT i was even remotely capable of facing… but with grace, grief, compassion and awareness (and lots of beloved people, a whiskey and flamin' hot doritos binge, my dog Nejma and lots of body movement), I am facing the s**t out of it ❤️‍🔥 (first time ever seeing and using this emoji and I fu***ng love it) ❤️‍🔥

I don't know who needs to hear this but, you can too 💛.

“To the heart in you, don’t be afraid to feel. To the sun in you, don’t be afraid to shine. To the love in you, don’t be afraid to heal. To the ocean in you, don’t be afraid to rage. To the silence in you, don’t be afraid to break.”

There should be at least a room, or some corner where no one will find you and disturb you or notice you. You should be able to untether yourself from the world and set yourself free, loosing all the fine strings and strands of tension that bind you, by sight, by sound, by thought, to the presence of other people.

[09/02/21]   “Let us recall to mind their dreams, bravery, compassion and skillfulness... and be thus reassured and equipped to bring forth the beauty and nobility that is the root of our being in this time — together, with and for all people, the animals, the living places... and whatever the future may bring.

May we together inspire each other to make of this darkness a time of powerful remembering, learning, caring, and perhaps... medicine.”

Nia communities across the globe showed up for self-care and for others and we raised $500 for this amazing organization. Made for Girls is a registered charity organization that makes reusable sanitary products for the women and girls in the poorest parts of South Africa. At inSpirit, we believe that movement can become a movement....for change, justice, self-care, love, dignity, and sacred discovery.

This body of mine will disintegrate, but my actions will continue me. In my daily life, I always practice to see my continuation all around me. We don’t need to wait until the total dissolution of this body to continue - we continue in every moment. If you think that I am only this body, then you have not truly seen me. When you look at my friends, you see my continuation. When you see someone walking with mindfulness and compassion, you know he is my continuation. I don’t see why we have to say “I will die,” because I can already see myself in you, in other people, and in future generations.

Even when the cloud is not there, it continues as snow or rain. It is impossible for a cloud to die. It can become rain or ice, but it cannot become nothing. The cloud does not need to have a soul in order to continue. There’s no beginning and no end. I will never die. There will be a dissolution of this body, but that does not mean my death. I will continue, always.

- Thich Nhat Hanh

From the daily offerings of the Center of Action and Contemplation and written by artist and author Julia Cameron:

"When we make our art in a spirit of service, it lightens the burden of our ego. It makes for clarity of focus, purity of intent, and follows a spiritual law that might be simply stated as “Form follows function.” When the “form” of our work is open to higher consciousness, its function is raised as well.

Art moves through us. . . . A piece of art may originate with us, but we originate somewhere larger ourselves. We are, each of us, more than we seem, more than the sum of our merely human components. There is a divine spark animating each of us, and that divine spark also animates our art."

I believe this to be true - that there is a divine spark animating each of us and that divine spark animates us. This spark has many ways of revealing itself. For some of us it is through our art, some our care of our closest relations (family, friends, animals, plants), some our support of our communities, some through contemplation and activism, and some through the simple act of breath. How does this spark animate you?

Feeling this today. I woke up crying and my person was there holding my hand, offering to stay home, allowing me to feel, and encouraging me to love myself. I am so grateful and don't take this love for granted.

“Yes! I also believe that the quieter I become the more I am able to feel, sense and connect with myself.

My Hanna Somatics practice has brought me even deeper into this experience and I am honored to be able to share this practice with all of you as well. The past 3 weeks I have been in deep healing mode and Somatics has been helping me to slowly unwind, to find ease outside of the pain and most importantly to be gentle with myself.

If you are curious about Somatics join me for a class on Mondays at 10:30am MT (24hr recordings available). I would love to share this practice with you.”

Sometimes in teaching meditation we say, "Sit like a mountain. Sit with a sense of strength and dignity. Be steadfast, be majestic, be natural and at ease in awareness. No matter how many winds are blowing, no matter how many clouds are swirling, no matter how many lions are prowling, be intimate with everything and sit like a mountain." This is an image of equanimity. We feel everything, without exception, and we relate to it through our own strength of awareness, not through habitual reactions.

Thank you, Sherrell Gray Savage, for posting about this today. August is National Black Business Month. Learn about it below and follow #BlackBusinessMonth for inspiration.

August is National Black Business Month and Black Enterprise is celebrating National #BlackBusinessMonth with a series of articles that shed a positive light on Black businesses large and small.
Black business owners make up roughly "10 percent of U.S. businesses and about 30 percent of all minority-owned businesses." According to the U.S. Census Bureau, that amounts to approximately two million companies owned by African Americans.
Historian John William Templeton and engineer Frederick E. Jordan Sr., founded National Black Business Month in August 2004 to “drive the policy agenda affecting the 2.6 million African-American businesses,” via National Day Calendar. Look out for these stories and share in support. We could feature your business!

Listen. Move. Transform. Sarah Nickerson is a First Degree Black Belt Nia Instructor committed to helping you live your fullest life through the promise of Nia. She received her White Belt in 2011 and has been teaching ever since throughout Santa Fe, NM. Sarah’s classes promise an athletic, playful, heart-centered, powerful experience that is deeply connected to music and healing.

Throughout her childhood and early adulthood, Sarah was labeled morbidly obese and never considered herself a dancer or athletic. Nia entered and helped erase the labels that were no longer defining her or her life. She believes that every BODY is meant to move in their own way and in their own time and invites all who dance with her to come as they are, authentic and whole.

In addition to her life as a Nia instructor, Sarah is a professional singer and empowers all of those who move with her to find their own voice through Nia.
