Surrender to your Senses

Kirstie Smallman

It is my intention to inspire and guide you as you seek support in any healing or personal growth journey, to prioritize self-care, and get out of your head and back into your body in the Kitchener-Waterloo region!

By engaging with the various movement and 'bodyfulness' practices I offer, such as Nia and Chakradance, you can reconnect (and stay connected) with the innate wisdom of your body, release the issues in your tissues, and experience a sense of deep fulfilment, so that your love and compassion overflows from your cup effortlessly. 

I am committed to wholistic wellness,  this involves moving your physical body, while also moving your emotions, tickling your intelligence and expanding your spirit, all within a safe space with music, guided movement and art! I am part of the team at the warm and welcoming Verv Wellness Studio in Kitchener-Waterloo, where you can find regular Nia classes and Chakradance sessions. Personal growth has never been so much fun! ;-)

The 'issues in our tissues' is the doorway to true self-knowledge, self-mastery, and ultimately, freedom. By paying close attention to your senses - reading your environment through your nerve-endings - or as I like to say in a more romantic way, SURRENDER TO YOUR SENSES, you can drop the stories that keep you limited, and courageously embrace the DANCE of YOUR LIFE! Kirstie offers GuiDANCE experiences around Southern Ontario and Kitchener-Waterloo.

 NIA® is a holistic, sensory-based, 'bodyful' dance class and fitness practice that not only conditions your body in remarkable and pleasurable ways, but also sharpens your mind, releases your emotions and frees your spirit with the creative use of music and movement. It draws from the martial arts, dance arts and healing arts, providing an enticing, whole-body dance workout and personal growth experience. Science proves it, dance classes make you happier! Dance enhances brain functions! And dancing in community and groups heals depression and anxiety. Find Nia classes in Kitchener-Waterloo HERE.

Chakradance

 CHAKRADANCE™ is a well-being movement practice. It uses spontaneous dance,  specific chakra-resonant music (for the purpose of healing and re-tuning your whole energy system) and mandala art expression. CHAKRADANCE™ is rhythm for your soul! Kirstie creates an inviting, safe space to let go of your inhibitions and relax into the dance of your inner world, using the chakra system as a map. She stimulates your imagination as you move freely to the incredible music, propelling you on a journey of self-discovery! Click HERE for Chakradance in Kitchener-Waterloo.
