Museum Saturday bARefooT for shoes – BRING A PAIR OF SCHOOL SHOES
Nia has led the way in barefoot fitness for nearly four decades. While science has shown tremendous benefits in being barefoot – including improving balance and awareness, relieving body pain and building foot and ankle strength – the Nia community recognizes the privilege of being able to CHOOSE if and when to move barefoot.
“Millions of children and adults living without shoes around the world do not have this choice,” said Debbie Rosas, founder of Nia. “Shoes provide a plethora of benefits, including opening up opportunities for school and work that are otherwise unavailable. Let’s help and do our part to empower empower a youngster from Kayamandi to own a pair of school shoes they can use in their daily lives, when and if they choose.
Nia is a holistic fitness practice that addresses body, mind and soul, with teachers and practitioners worldwide who are passionate about all aspects of self-care as well as community connection. With its strong community focus and belief in confidence, connection and empowerment,
Join Mia Steyn, a Nia Black Belt First Degree teacher for a fun and interactive wellness talk, and movement experience. All ages are welcome and it is free to join in. As we are in the season of giving, we aim to gift Kayamandi Primary a whole lot of school shoes for those learners in need. If you would like to donate, please bring a new pair of black school shoes or you can donate a monetary amount of R150. These donations will go directly into the bARefooT fund to support the buying of school shoes.
Bring your friends, come kick off your shoes and move to soul-stirring music for a good cause!
