Family Constellations Workshop – Saturday, 8th June

FAMILY CONSTELLATIONS is a powerful method to help you recognise difficult entanglements, both in your family of origin as well as in your present family or relationship. Solution-oriented interventions bring understanding, which is followed by a deep relaxation that allows love to flow again between members of the family system.

Families have an unconscious mind and soul that travel across generations and entangle those who follow in the fates of those who came before us. We are deeply bonded to family members we may not have even known or knew existed: a parent’s deceased sibling; a grandmother’s rage; a stillborn baby, miscarriage, or abortion; ancestors who were enslaved or enslaved others; a father’s allies who died in wartime; our grandparents’ previous partners; the ancestors who stayed in the home country; and many others. Out of blind, loyal love, we unconsciously try to bring into light our ancestor’s difficult fate(s). This bonding love may cause us to invite situations into our lives in an unconscious attempt to restore balance to our family systems. The dynamics of this larger blueprint lies beyond our awareness, yet its effects on our lives is profound.

The Constellation experience invites you to pause and create sacred space together, and through the process explore the entanglements and old patterns and sound to assist the body to integrate the process – shifting the energy towards one of the possibility of change, creativity and expansion to reconnect to who you truly are.

Nadia Kimmie is a trained Systemic Constellations Facilitator, offering both individual and group constellation workshops to deepen the healing process.

 The workshop is open to everybody – no experience needed.

  • Date: Saturday, 8th June
  • Time: 11am – 4pm
  • Cost: R500 *Early Bird special of R450 if booked by May 31st
  • Sign up: 082 462 4844 or email
    BOOKING is essential for this workshop

Overview of the process:

  • The hidden, family dynamics are brought to light with the group dynamic where the participants create a constellation of his or her family.
  • The participants, representing members of that person’s family, are positioned in the room in relation to each other according to the client’s feeling in that moment. In this way, a living model of the original (or present) family is created.
  • The feelings and thoughts of the people representing family members are very similar to those of the actual family members.
  • There exists an energy field that guides the representatives’ movements and allows them to have access to all essential information of the systemic field.

Inner Dance Experience – Tuesday, 18th June

A spontaneous healing and energy movement process that allows your body to speak its stored available wisdom.

Often a deconstruction process takes place where walls of fear begin to wriggle their way free, it is a perfect union for balancing the masculine and feminine energies within.

The playlist is very specific and takes you on a journey into various terrains within your own spirit. They say that Inner Dance can awaken the Dreamer inside of you – spontaneous movement may happen – that derives from various openings that get created via the Inner Dance experience.

A few ways to describe Inner Dance:

  • Your intuitive body beginning to speak it’s stored available wisdom
  • Awakening the dreamer inside of you – waking up / parts of you
  • Deconstructing and opening up the walls so that fear that is locked in the body starts to wriggle its way free
  • A way to speak to yourself through your body
  • A conversation between your little self and bigger self

It comes from a total surrendering; allowing the Dance to take you where it is needed to go. Spontaneous movement may happen – that derives from various openings that get created via the Inner Dance.

There are vast experiences that people have when in this space. Come with an open mind and willingness to heal and learn more about your self.

You lie down to start and the music invites the body to respond as it needs feels called to. The facilitator supports the process by facilitating energetic bodywork and sound healing when called to do so. Time for journalling at the end of the process is included as well.


Date: Tuesday, 18th June
Time: 7.30 – 9.15pm

Nia trainings are for every body! – and the White Belt is a gift to you and your body for the rest of your life.

It’s for people who love the feeling in their bodies when they move – whether you want to teach or simply want to deepen your awareness. You talk, you listen, you move, you play, you feel, you experience.

Joyful. Transformational. It’s unlike any other educational training you have ever experienced. Nia White Belt Intensive Training is the first step on the Nia Training path. All Nia Training is highly interactive and delivers foundational principles through both cognitive and experiential learning models.

You need no movement background or fitness level and don’t even have to be a Nia student. Upon completion of the Nia White Belt Intensive Training, you are eligible to licence as a Nia Teacher.

“Nia is safe place where I can get lost in the joy of movement in my own special way of moving. Nia is a sure way to fall in love with yourself and everyone else again” 


It is a powerful week for tuning into your own body and moving in a way that feels good as you immerse yourself into the Art of Sensation for self-discovery, self-healing and self-mastery.

Nia trainings are embodied learning – a well-crafted balance between cognitive and experiential journeying, listening to your body, learning from it + consciously tracking pain and pleasure, and then choosing to be kind to your body, to move with the joy of movement and feel the power of your aliveness.

Nia White Belt teaches you the Art of Sensation through five core areas of study over 50+ hours of somatic education:

  • Movement – the study of moving, health + potential
  • Anatomy – the study of body parts + systems
  • Science – the study of body awareness, health + vitality
  • Music – the study of sound, health + expression
  • Philosophy – the study of the body’s inherent wisdom.
  • A deeper understanding of self: knowing your body, mind, emotions and spirit.
  • Techniques to sustain and increase pleasurable sensation in your body.
  • Ways to integrate Nia’s nine movement forms: Jazz, Duncan Dance, Modern Dance, Aikido, Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, The Alexander Technique, The Work of Moshe Feldenkrais® and Yoga.
  • The 52 Moves of Nia: the language of conditioning and self-healing.
  • How to work with the 8BC system: developing listening skills to code and map music and sound.
  • The practice of RAW (Relaxed, Alert, Waiting) and what it means to be in “living meditation”.
  • How to stimulate movement creativity using the eight stages of Free Dance.
  • The Body’s Way method for moving and physical conditioning.
  • How to listen to the voices of your body.
  • How to move your Body’s Way.
  • How to “create space”.
  • About your “witness” and how to use it as a tool for self-healing.
  • How to create an optimal learning experience working with the Energy Allies.
  • How to communicate what you sense in your body.
  • Nia’s business philosophy and what it means to create a Sacred Livelihood based on your unique life purpose.

Every Body! – anyone can take the Nia White Belt and no experience is required.

  • If you want to teach Nia, the Nia White Belt is your first step into this wonderful experience.
  • Alternatively, the training is an enriching experience as the path to greater body and mind awareness = a perfect investment into self ♥︎
