Find Health Through Movement with Nia
Nia stands for Neuro-Muscular Integrative Action. Simply put, Nia is an exhilarating movement and lifestyle practice. As the first cardio workout to combine martial arts, dance and healing arts, Nia has fundamentally changed lives with its evolutionary approach to fitness and self-healing in a body. It offers a fun, creative pathway to health and well-being, regardless of age or physical condition. Dee Dee will introduce you to Nia and its 13 key benefits. Wear comfortable clothing, as there will be movement accompanied by amazing, healing music.

Dee Dee is a licensed massage therapist who has practiced in the Rockford area for the past 25 years. She became a licensed Nia White Belt in July of 2013 and has enjoyed sharing her knowledge of the body with this new practice.

The History of Tarot
Learn the history, design, symbolism, and interpretation of tarot cards and how they’ve been used over the centuries. Many of today’s card games are descendants of the original game played with tarot. You’ll also discover how to use it, not so much for fortune telling, but as practical self-therapy with insight and guidance for your daily life. Each participant will receive a handout that can be used to make your own cards.

Jan has collected and studied tarot for over 30 years. She has a Masters degree in Theatre from NIU and was a teacher and consultant for RPS205’s Gifted & Talented program for 31 years. Jan volunteers her time and energy at a number of organizations within Rockford including Womanspace.
