HI! I'M VICKY
Im delighted to share with you all the things that have helped me in my life. Im my late teens, i went searching for tools and techniques to help me out of addiction, being overweight, out of control and not really liking myself or doing what i wanted with my life…..I travelled around Australia, Asia, India and Europe looking for a way out of my pain and suffering…I lived in an alternative community and a meditation retreat centre, learning lots on the way…For over 20 years now i have explored and tried out many different kinds of things in the world of personal development, and the things that have really stuck with me and really enabled me to grow, and still do, i would like to share with you….
THE NIA TECHNIQUE
Ever since I can remember I have loved to move and dance. I experimented with many kinds of dance & fitness techniques and I felt really strongly that I wanted to learn to teach something…..then in 2008 I discovered Nia. It’s a great way to get fit, have fun and feel great all at the same time. I love the music, its guiding principles and its creative potential. I love the way it combines steps and freedance. Since learning it, i have been teaching classes & workshops in oxford & beyond and on meditation retreats/other events.
I feel very fortunate to have Nia in my life, now I just want to share its joys, so others too can experience the benefits and pleasure that it brings. My hope is that other people in Oxfordshire do the training and teach too, and that we will create a wonderful local Nia community.
Being creative and making things has always been another love of mine, you name it ive tried it, my house is full of things i have made!. A year or so ago i came across a Powertex workshop and i absolutely loved it....its so versatile and i like the way you can make old/recycled things new, its also non-toxic and environmentally friendly which is another plus for me. I did my training last year and since then im been buzzing away learning and experimenting with it, so im really looking forwards to sharing all i have learnt with you!
Over the past 12 years I have developed my own style of dance & meditation. It is a collection of tools, techniques, exercises, reflections, affirmations & movements that can help you create more health, happiness and harmony in your heart & mind (thoughts/feelings), body, soul and thus with others and in the world around.
The dances can be guided simple steps or freedance (gives you a chance to explore your own natural ways of movement). All the music is carefully chosen and is uplifting, healing and inspiring.
Since a child, I have always loved singing, performing and expressing myself through sound and movement. Over the past 10 years i have been singing on retreats at the global retreat centre and in a variety of meditation-based events and festivals. It is my great pleasure to be able to share with you very soon (summer/autumn 2018) my debut album of original songs created with talented and wonderful Andy Blissett (co-creator of the music of amazing music of Bliss www.andyblissett.com) I will be creating some events to share it with you with, alongside singing cover-songs that inspire me, with like-minded musicians and an opportunity for you to dance along if you wish.
