It’s been a busy fall day here at kt lit, even though it started off with snow (in October! Again! I KNOW!). Anyway, I’ve been thinking lately about the other things we do in our lives that refresh and renew our spirit, and otherwise enable us to write. What do you do that keeps your spirit awake? Or, when it’s been sleeping (or bundled up against the cold and the writer’s block) what do you do to wake it up?
I’ve been doing Nia for the past few years. Never heard of Nia before? The description, from the website:
Nia is a path to condition, heal and express your self through movement and sensation. A dynamic blend of dance arts, martial arts and healing arts, Nia revolutionized the face of fitness in 1983, and has since changed millions of lives and bodies across the globe. Balancing technical precision with free-form expression, Nia brings the body, mind, emotions and spirit to optimum health through music, movement and self-expression, guided by the sensation of Pleasure.
I’ve recently decided to test for my White Belt, as well as my teacher certification, in order to more deeply experience the pleasure of Nia, and share it with others. Every time I finish a class, I come out excited to tackle the next thing, and I love that feeling!
I know of several other writers that teach fitness — maybe it’s something about the schedule that allows for bountiful free time, or at least a flexible schedule. So, what do you do for spiritual healing? Cue Marvin Gaye…
