JOY in Our Hearts!!!
"Let's celebrate peace, let's celebrate love.
Let's celebrate light that shines, shines, shines.
Let's celebrate faith, lets celebrate hope.
Let's celebrate joy, joy in our hearts."
From "Joy in Our Hearts" by Karen Drucker and J.D. Martin
Blessing Dear Friends!
Such a beautiful and uplifting song, "Joy in Our Hearts". The song celebrates and invites us to be in the sensation of JOY in times of darkness, in the silence, in every moment, and to come together in gratitude. Joy is an energy we can tap into anytime no matter what is going on in our world.
Nia's 1st principle of the white belt is Joy of Movement and it teaches us to connect to Joy by choosing sensation through all movement. Not only on the dance floor, also in life. It is more than an emotion and does not mean I am happy all the time. I may be frustrated, sad, mad,...many emotions; however, I can still choose to be in Joy of Movement. It is a state of being and living in the world, and I am grateful for this tool!
As you move through the holiday season, I invite you to take time to move your body and connect with the Joy of Movement. No matter what is happening around you, chose to be in sensation and connect with Joy...a wonderful gift to give yourself during all the hustle and bustle.
In my Nia and Yoga classes this week I will be focusing on Joy in our Hearts, connecting to the sensation of JOY. I hope you can join me!!
