FORMAT:

To begin, there will be time allowed for participants to meet, mingle and connect, then be introduced to the movement practice including
health and wellbeing education.

 

The introduction will comprise of some theory: explaining the background in the movement practice being offered, some movement based warm up activities to connect participants to their bodies and to feel comfortable in the shared space and guidance on moving in their own body’s way.

 

An hour will then be spent on a “class” in the movement practice where participants get to engage in these modalities themselves, before ending with refreshments and more time to chat and connect again.

 

Both the Nia and Ageless Grace Playshops will be conducted by lesbian women who are trained educators in these modalities. They come with over 40 plus combined years of experience in education and health, and over 20 years combined experience in specifically teaching/training Nia and Ageless Grace.

 

The Playshops are designed to attract local lesbian women of all ages and abilities, as both modalities cater for diversity in body ability, and are suitable for all ages.

 

Nia Playshops aim to empower Lesbian/Queer/Trans women to feel comfortable in and connected to their own bodies through movement and music. Nia supports participants to embrace movement and expression in their own body’s way to support healing and growth in their physical,
emotional, cognitive and spiritual selves.

 

Ageless Grace Playshops cater for and support our elders in the Lesbian/Queer/Trans community as well as lesbians with a disability to find health and well being though movement, music brain stimulating exercises and creativity. Ageless Grace encourages social interaction, playfulness and fun, and empowers participants to feel stronger and more confident.
