PlayList for WHY routine

i LOVE this new and improved routine.
Each song has something to do with WHY (or Y!). I giggle as I remember back to when our daughter, Liliana, was about 2 and her response to everything seemed to be “WHY” ~ we called her “Liliana Why” for about a year! This is the “Nia Routine Why”… don’t ask me why!

Nia Fiesta Play List

Cinco de Mayo inspired this play list. Super fun class. I selected songs from previous routines that give a Fun Fiesta Feeling then added a few more from B-Tribe. I’ve been dreaming of including Fiesta Fatal in a Nia class for years. Great way to slip in a couple of songs from Bailando.

The “mudra”/signature for the routine is Creepy Crawlers rising arms with hips (Jazz), Calm slow touch down (Tai Chi), Figure 8 (Aikido).

Focus: Fiesta Fun with Happy Hips, Hara, Heart, Head & Hands.
Intent: We will feel fabulously energized

  • relaxed spine and joints
  • enhanced expressiveness
  • lifted spirits
