Carolina Marun began her Nia journey 10 years ago. In honor of #hispanicheritagemonth she shared her story with us.

“I was born in Venezuela. My ancestors are Venezuelan, Lebanese, and French. My husband’s families are from Spain and Portugal. I currently split my time between the US (Virginia), Spain, and Mexico, while traveling and experiencing the culture of dozens of Spanish-speaking countries.

I experienced my first Nia class 10 years ago. I was curious and I felt something special I couldn’t define at that moment. Two weeks later, I participated in a Nia weekend retreat in Virginia and that was where my committed and passionate relationship with Nia began. Since then, I have completed the Nia White Belt, Blue belt, Nia FreeDance, 5 Stages, FloorPlay, Moving to Heal, and am currently working towards the Brown belt.

Nia has enhanced both my personal and professional life. My rational side has been fulfilled with my professional journey as a Chemical Engineer PhD, and as an Executive MBA in the first half of my life journey. I have been touched, healed, opened, and transformed in wonderful ways I didn’t know or foresaw could exist. My personal journey has been greatly influenced by Nia, as it has enlightened my awareness and consciousness in my body, mental, emotional, and spiritual realms.

I know that even though the Spanish language is a common link between all these non-monolithic Hispanic cultures, there are strong differences in our LatinX communities that need to be honored and understood in order to embrace our diversity. The love for music, rhythm, and joy of movement is in the core of the Latin dance cultures. I live by all these values on and off the dance floor.

Feliz semana de la hispanidad!”

Thank you, Carolina, for sharing your story with us!

Welcome Izabell!
She will be helping us with social media and we asked her to start by introducing herself. Here's what she wants to share with you...

Hi! My name is Izabell. I am 16 years old and currently living in Toronto, Ontario. I am working as the SoulShine Social Media Manager for my high school work internship this term. Sending love and joy from Canada!

I believe the love you send into the world, you will find, is the love that returns to you. In life, I always put my best foot forward, see challenges as opportunities and strive to help my friends and community in the most positive ways I can. I have always been interested in yoga and understand the natural benefits to one’s body and mind.

In my free time I enjoy writing, singing and practicing yoga. I am excited to join the wonderful SoulShine team to work on social media marketing and video editing projects. I hope you like the new zest I add to SoulShine studios.

Kurt Vonnegut tells his wife he's going out to buy an envelope:

“Oh, she says, well, you're not a poor man. You know, why don't you go online and buy a hundred envelopes and put them in the closet?

And so I pretend not to hear her. And go out to get an envelope because I'm going to have a hell of a good time in the process of buying one envelope.

I meet a lot of people. And see some great looking babies. And a fire engine goes by. And I give them the thumbs up. And I'll ask a woman what kind of dog that is. And, and I don't know. The moral of the story is - we're here on Earth to fart around.

And, of course, the computers will do us out of that. And what the computer people don't realize, or they don't care, is we're dancing animals. You know, we love to move around. And it's like we're not supposed to dance at all anymore."

Let's all get up and move around a bit right now... or at least dance.

How will I feel after I come to a Nia class?
Glad you asked!

First of all, check out the smiles on those lovely dancers!

Here's what Jane has to say about that....

"Even if my body hurts when I get here, I ALWAYS feel better after Nia!"
Jane, (who also suggested that we share that she is 71)

Thank you, Jane! We agree! We feel better mind, body and spirit after dancing together!

Nia is for everybody - no skills or experience necessary. You really need to try it to see what it feels like.

SoulShine Studios RVA is offering a unique experience - Introduction to Human Design: Mastering your Uniqueness. This is a 3 week workshop (live on Zoom) with the incredible Diana Cale Kennedy. I have been working with Diana for a few years and have referred many friends. I finally persuaded Diana to share her genius with us in this new way. Check int out - the link to read more is in the comments below. I agree 100% with my friend Dana. Here's what she says... "I cannot say enough about the experience I receive whenever I work with Diana and go deeper into Human Design. I have studied astrology for many years, always finding clicks and aha moments and yet, in the first two minutes with Diana and my Human Design chart, I felt like she completely unveiled who I am and what I am here to do! I love her skill, insights and pure ease of explanation she brings to this practice. I recommend her to all the seekers I know, and they come back again and again." Dana Hood Nia With Dana
