Now that the summer and New Year break is over, you’re likely feeling the stress pile back into your life from school, work, or just day-to-day responsibilities.
If you need something to ground yourself and keep your inner energy clear, focused, and at peace, then look no further than this blog! In today’s written piece, we’ll be discussing a stress relief dance in Hamilton, known as Nia Dance, and informing you of all the wondrous and marvelous benefits it provides, and how easily it can make you forget all about your worries and stress.
Allow Nia Dance To Melt Away The Stresses of Life
Studies have shown that specific music, social interaction and dance can significantly decrease stress. These three things alone are just a few things that Nia Dance specialises in and prioritises. The music of Nia Dance is specifically chosen based on its instruments, chords played, binaural frequencies and rhythm to provide maximum benefits to your mind and soul. Some of these benefits include mental clarity and focus, improved cognitive function and heightened sensory awareness.
The dance movements of Nia Dance are 52 in total, and each is inspired by movements within the martial, healing and other dance arts. These include yoga, aikido, jazz and Tai-Kwando to name a few. All movements are easily adaptable for each individual’s needs and movement levels, and it’s encouraged to not follow the moves exactly. Rather, let each movement be a guide and allow your body to find what flows naturally; this is how you’ll get the best benefits.
Lastly, whether you taking part in Nia Dance online with friends and family joining in or you’re participating in-person at a Dance NZ class, you’ll be sure to receive a boosted amount of social interaction. Receiving enough socialisation throughout the week will help boost your happiness, calm your energy, and provide you with laughter and new or stronger social connections.
