Our prayers are with you and your husband, may the surgery go well and he recover quickly and God grant you much peace and joy in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Even though the days darken, we have a comforter who will never forsake us.
From wisegeek.com NIA stands for "neuromuscular integrative technique and now is better known as non-impact aerobics, is an exercise program developed in 1983, in Santa Rosa, California by Carlos and Debbie Rosas"
From the nianow.com home page:
“Nia is movement-medicine for the body and soul.”
Nia simultaneously addresses the body, mind, emotions, and spirit, and puts them on the “same page” using music, movement and personal expression to integrate one’s neurology (including the mind, emotions, and spirit) with one’s outer body, or musculature. To achieve this whole-being integration, Nia addresses the whole person using a comprehensive, holistic exercise approach designed with a combination of nine classic movement forms.
Nia Blends Nine Movement Forms
Martial Arts: T’ai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido
Dance Arts: Jazz Dance, Modern Dance, Duncan Dance
Healing Arts: Yoga, Alexander Technique, The Teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais
Nia teaches you how to physically interpret and internally direct your actions and choices, and to listen to the voice of your body and allow the body to be your guide in discovering Dynamic Ease. Practiced barefoot to music, Nia is self-guided, adaptable and safe for any fitness level, from stiff beginners to highly fit athletes. Delivering cardiovascular, whole-body conditioning, Nia is based on creating a loving relationship with the body and following The Body’s Way – the innate intelligence of the body.
It looks like the same "same old stuff" of Yoga/Tai Chi/Karate with similar elements. Since it incorporates the mind with the body and spirit, I would raise big red flags and call it New Age from the "get go".
"Integrative" is a buzz word that stands out to me.
Praying for you and your hubbie today. I know that God is with you and that He will strengthen and heal your husband.
By His Grace,
YesNASpanishTown - you are right on, the info you provided is excactly the NIA I am asking about. It seems New Age to me - and something in my spirit grieves each time I see it.
The European Court of Justice has ruled unanimously that an English police database that holds the DNA and fingerprints of suspects who are arrested but later cleared "violates Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights - the right to respect for private and family life."
How easy would it be to throw out such a ruling in a situation of national or regional "emergency"?
It sounds like English citizens are being conditioned for a "bait and switch."
and Doug ,
I'm praying your your health, healing
and an end of pain.
"There is a rest for God's people"
Just in case anyone is still following the Michelle Obama telephe call saga over there, note that they are using more Aljazeera stories over there. I'm not sure what that means. Whereas at the beginning they were opposed to Odinga and by extension to Obama, over the last two months they have suppressed the MO tape for various reasons. Part of it might be because Kenya is making such a big deal about Obama as a native son. (Note: Hawaii isn't.) Part of it may be that the Arab community is extending its influence further (see Wikipedia re Aljazeera) as AFI developed a large following in the US as a result of the MO story.
It's hard to see who is manipulating who without knowing the sources of the information. What is reported on the right or left may not have a basis in fact.
You're both in my prayers. Thanks for soldiering on despite the stresses in your personal and professional life.
BTW: Drudge has a link to a Times of London article about Israel being prepared to go it alone against Iran in air strikes.
"Israel is drawing up plans to attack Iran's nuclear facilities and is prepared to launch a strike without backing from the US, it has been reported."
Here's a possible scenario for (planned) worldwide economic collapse.
One you can get through the author's obvious digs at the present administration, the scenario he presents seems frighteningly possible.
This was written before the current election outcome; but, throw in the intelligence gathered by Constance and other posters on this board, and you're looking at possibly JS/EU/NATO/Obama & Cabinet/NAers, etc., all forming an unholy amalgam of "saviors" to get us out this future mess--all for our (read: their) benefit, of course.
I read most of the article, thanks.
When you say, "This was written before the current election outcome..." it appears you mean before the Bush second term election. Several references there to it being before the Bush/Cheney second term.
So it looks like he was quite on the money predicting total financial collapse in 2009, writing some 4 or 5 years before.
Thank you for that excellent link.
I appreciate your research and look forward to seeing more from you.
