PMS Praise Move & Sweat!

Come Praise Move and Sweat with us at Soma Ranch! We're in for a SUPER TIME listening, singing and dancing to Christian music. Folks of all faiths, seekers and atheists are welcome. Giving it to Jesus will be our focus.

For over 2 decades (since I became a Christian) I've been dreaming, praying and longing to combine my passion for Christ, with my love for movement, into an all inspiring Christian workout/workship experience. With the sale of our NiaMoves studio and business, moving up to Montgomery, the blossoming of Soma Ranch business, my Liliana (daughter) happily transitioned to University of Texas, and most of all my own faith growing and developing, I feel Christ nudging me.... the time is now, take a step in faith.. 

Cost: Suggested sliding scale: $5-25.

I hope you will join me. If you are unable to attend, yet curious/interested to come to future classes, please email me at helen@somaranch.com.

I love how crazy excited and scared I am all at the same time! Prayers appreciated.

Special thanks to Charlotte Kerr Jorgensen, Peggy Renfroe, Dena Trayhan, Barbara Portele, Kendra Oglesbee, Joanna Runciman, Loretta Milo, Jody T Morse, Sonja Leite, Sue Korthauer, Katy Hobbs, Kathy McElroy, Dee Pile and especially Sonja Lowe, who each, in their own unique sweet ways, have been sisters in Christ, praying for me and nudging me on this path for a long time....

Nia Rising Routine

Nia Rising Routine

My Nia Routine “Rising” is an adapted routine, based on the classic Nia routine Mantra, originally designed by Carlos Aya Rosas and one of the first routines I ever learned.

Focus: movement as mantra and a metaphor for self, community, life.

Beginning with sensing the belly (our core) notice how this “moma cell” can contract/extend, bend/lean, figure 8. The Belly is a substance with strength (resilience), elasticity (the ability to bounce back), and fluidity (go with the flow). After embodying the focus in the Belly we expand awareness to the belly of the 700 muscles in our body, then to each piece of connective tissue, the 7000+ cells. All the same mantra of movement.

We sense inward (Body, Belly, Muscles, Connective Tissue, Cell)
We can also sense outwards (Body, Self, Others, Class, Community, Global)and realize it (and we) are one.

The Mantra, our lives, the community continues. We are strong, we bounce back, we go with the flow, we celebrate, there is much love.

I’m inspired by the words of David Foster Wallace, This Is Water

There are these two young fish swimming along and they happen to meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nods at them and says, “Morning, boys. How’s the water?”

And the two young fish swim on for a bit, and then eventually one of them looks over at the other and goes, “What the hell is water?”….

….the immediate point of the fish story is merely that the most obvious, ubiquitous, important realities are often the ones that are hardest to see and talk about.

Conquer Paper Clutter

Imagine a life free of paper piles and challenges? Kim Miller to the rescue - she's amazing! Please join me for this super class, for only $10 you can glean super helpful information, meet up with fun ladies at Soma Ranch and sip some tea. What could be better? hmm.. stay on and enjoy Praise Worship Workout at 5:00pm. ;-)

Paper clutter is a problem for everyone --- it's the one type of clutter that you can't  STOP from entering your home no matter how hard you try. 

So instead of covering your eyes and letting the papers pile up, learn how to handle the onslaught. Papers no longer have to be stressful.  Kim Miller will teach you how to manage them without anxiety and prepare you for tax day (either for this year or next!).

Kim’s Organizing Solutions is a highly credited Professional Organizing Company in the Montgomery County area. Kim has witnessed the debilitating effects of how clutter costs people time, stress, money and prevents them from achieving their goals.

Kim is passionate about giving others hope, encouragement and discovering new possibilities. Kim will be hosting a hands-on workshop on Sunday, March 26th from 2:30-4:00.  She will be sharing tips on how to conquer the paper piles and help you create an effective filing system. 

The cost of the class is only $10 to cover the cost of supplies. What a deal! You may pay by cash or check at the time of the event.

If you are interested in simplifying your life and having fun, please rsvp Kim by Friday March 24th at Ksolutions713@gmail.com

It’s time to break free from the stuff that’s been holding you back!

Sacred Immersion with Kelle Rae

Enjoy learning the latest "hot off the press" Nia routine from visiting creator/choreographer, Nia trainer, Kelle Rae Oien. 

The focus of Sacred is the Bones. The intent is to drop in under our skin to experience our 206 bones in order to relax and create sustainability in the body. The sacral and cranial bones will be our featured guideposts, as they are the endpoints of our spine. The only bone that can be voluntarily moved in the cranium is the jawbone. For this reason, emphasis is given to relax and drop the jawbone, as well as to sound and express, to effectively encourage mobility up and down the spine and into the sacrum.
