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.
😊🙏💗

⚡️🌱 ECLIPSE SZN AFFIRMATIONS 🌱⚡️ for transformation, power, and collective liberation!!!

Quick exercise for you to try:

🌱 Write down the affirmation that resonated the most for you on your journey.
🌱 Go outside and literally touch grass. I’m serious. Get down on your knees and place your hands on the earth.
🌱 Whisper the affirmation to the earth. Let it ground you in the remembering that you are a part of the everything — a tiny microcosm of all these macrocosmic forces we talk about here. Your beating heart belongs here. And you’re more powerful than you know.

Honored to be here with you,
Hope 🌱⚡️

✨Use Nia's Palm Directions move to stimulate the flow of energy in and around your shoulder girdle and heart chakra.
✨Moving the palms up, leading with the pinky finger, allows you to sense support from behind and underneath while opening the shoulder joint and allowing your shoulder blades to swing down and out.
✨Moving with palms down, leading with the thumb, moves energy down and allows your shoulder blades to return to resting.

Awareness of our sensations is an opportunity to learn, grow and evolve. Take a moment to walk slowly around your space. What do you sense in your body as you move? Are there ways that you can bring more ease into your walk? How does sensation support your exploration?

Balance your Root Chakra. Lay down and focus on the base of your spine. Visualize a RED wheel spinning face-up in a clockwise direction. Repeat this affirmation out loud or in silent meditation.

✨One of the most effective ways to bring health and vitality to your root chakra, as shared by Anodea Judith in her book, “Wheels of Life” is with grounding exercises.
✨Spending time barefoot, ideally in nature, is one option for grounding. Since Nia is done barefoot, dancing using Nia’s Stances is a perfect way to enhance your grounding practice.

Zoe Katakuzinos and I had a wonderful time with a spirited group of Nia teachers as we embodied the newest Nia Technique Routine Bloom together. After the two-session Learn the Routine, one participant shared, "Witnessing your different approaches, made me realize that Nia is a creative journey in many ways." Another said, "Thank you for your willingness to model calm, trust, learning with ease, laughter and fun."

If you are interested in accessing the recordings, I can send them to you and you'll have the entire month of October to learn, embody, and share! Send me an email at [email protected] or feel free to DM me.

💕🦄 AFFIRMATIONS FOR COLLECTIVE HEALING & COMMUNITY CARE 🦄💕

There’s so much conditioning in our culture that tells us healing happens in isolation — that it’s something you do alone and ashamed, until you’re ‘fixed’ enough to function in a broken world. But there’s only so much we can do on our own — at the end of the day, healing (for me) is about contributing from our wholeness to co-create a world our descendants and more-than-human family won’t have to continue to heal from.

Notice where you’re being sold a very individualistic, capitalist version of healing — you’ll mostly hear about ‘personal responsibility’ and pulling your mental health up by its own bootstraps and willing/shaming yourself to forgive and forget your trauma.

Then remember: you aren’t alone and you shouldn’t have to be. We heal together. For each other. And for our most daring vision of what lies ahead if we let ourselves dream, and remember our power. 🦄✨

Share your favorite one to your Story and tag me so I can see what landed with you today — or tag a friend in the comments who needs the reminder. 🫶🏼

Loving you,
Hope 💖

"The second half of my life will be black
to the white rind of the old and fading moon.
The second half of my life will be water
over the cracked floor of these desert years.
I will land on my feet this time,
knowing at least two languages and who
my friends are. I will dress for the
occasion, and my hair shall be
whatever color I please.
Everyone will go on celebrating the old
birthday, counting the years as usual,
but I will count myself new from this
inception, this imprint of my own desire.

The second half of my life will be swift,
past leaning fenceposts, a gravel shoulder,
asphalt tickets, the beckon of open road.
The second half of my life will be wide-eyed,
fingers shifting through fine sands,
arms loose at my sides, wandering feet.
There will be new dreams every night,
and the drapes will never be closed.
I will toss my string of keys into a deep
well and old letters into the grate.

The second half of my life will be ice
breaking up on the river, rain
soaking the fields, a hand
held out, a fire,
and smoke going
upward, always up."
Joyce Sutphen - Crossroads.

We’re focusing on err this week, right?

Sarah Nickerson

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.
