News & Notes
By Marcia Finberg
We had a wonderful time dancing to "Pulse" yesterday in class (Camelback Village, Sunday). We will be dancing to a variety of routines for the rest of the month -- maybe "Magic"...maybe "Dragon"...Casey will surprise us!
I hope you all got the email about the White Belt intensive we will have here in Phoenix. We will split it between two weekends in November. In a lot of ways, I think this is an ideal format. It will enable us to digest what we have learned and move forward a little deeper. I will be there!
I hope you will as well.
One of things I love, love, love about NIA is that we dance at our own levels. The idea is to continue to grow body-mind-spirit, but not to injure yourself by pushing too hard. For example, I have a friend in NYC who told me that she has spent two months rehabbing a rotator cuff injury sustained by working out on the TRX at a "boot camp" gym. Her husband is an orthopedic surgeon! (#embarrassing). And it can get worse! As the article below discusses, if you push yourself beyond your body's capabilities, you can develop rhabdomyolysis. Which can be deadly.
So, yes, give 100%. But as Casey always tells us: "YOUR WAY".
