Retreating into Natural Time

In Nia the concept of natural time is meant to give us the opportunity to be in the present moment and to discover our own way of learning, moving and being in the world. Natural time is a powerful principle that teaches us to move at our own pace, to our own depths and in response to our individual impulses. We stay connected to natural time by remaining connected to sensation; and, that is precisely what this weekend retreat invites you to do; move at your own pace for the weekend choosing what feels right for your body.

  About Vista Verde   Vista Verde Retreat sits on 37 acres of land on the west edge of the Taos Gorge surrounded by juniper and piñon trees. There is a beautiful sprung wood dance floor for our Nia classes and lots of space to be outdoors, with two hiking trails looping through the natural surroundings, a ceremonial sand circle, an outdoor fire pit and a labyrinth. With no television or cell service you can’t help but disconnect and plug into natural time (though, if absolutely necessary a landline and WiFi are available).
