Pathways to Wellness:

Movement

Experience a new sense of aliveness! Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts and healing arts. Nia brings the body, mind, emotions and spirit to optimum health through inspiring music, movement and creative self-expression. A journey of discovery, Nia is designed for any body and invites you to honor the wisdom of your body in moving. This video shares a little about the Nia experience.

Healthy Nutrition

Good food is the groundwork for good health and a diet rich in whole foods can protect our bodies from chronic, degenerative and inflammatory conditions. It is never too late to guard your health by eating a healthy, balanced diet.

Healthy eating should be a pleasurable and tasty experience. Above all we want to help you become stronger, healthier and happier.

Sound Healing

Sound healing provides an opportunity to calm the mind and experience a deep state of relaxation and inner peace. The soothing effect of vibrations resonating throughout the body helps to reduce tension and stress and are nourishing and revitalizing to body, mind and spirit.

While sitting or resting comfortably on a mat, the sound and vibrations from singing bowls, gongs, chimes and drums take you on a meditative journey to greater harmony and balance within.
