One in three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime - that is 1 billion women!
Lebanon is RISING! One Billion Rising Lebanon is offering a community Nia® class as one way to raise awareness of violence against women and girls by RISING & RELEASING through DANCING!
Nia, a fusion fitness practice – is a dynamic blend of the dance arts, martial arts and the healing arts. It creatively integrates the mindfulness of the martial arts and meditative techniques, the grace and fluidity of the dance techniques, and the awareness and alignment of integrative body therapies. Balancing technical precision with free-form expression, Nia brings the body, mind, emotions and spirit to optimum health though music, movement and self-expression, guided by the sensation of Pleasure.
Practiced barefoot to music, Nia is self-guided, adaptable and safe for any fitness level, from reticent beginners to highly fit athletes. Most of all, Nia is exhilarating and fun!
As part of the 1 hour Nia Routine, we will also dance to the One Billion Rising anthem, "Break the Chain"- so for those who've attended last year's OBR event in Beirut Souks- get ready to move and groove again to this awesome song! We will be posting on how to learn this choreography so you get a chance to groove on the day!
