MP Mary Ng had a packed room of hundreds of people at her New Year’s Eve Levee held on Jan. 14 at Milliken Mills Community Centre. Guests enjoyed complimentary food and entertainment.
Little dancers from Carol C Dance filled the room with lots of positive energy, as did solo singer Diane Chen and various other performers.
One of the groups entertaining was Munni Subhani and her student dancers.
Subhani encourages others, particularly seniors, to engage in therapeutic Indian exercises. This form of therapy involves body awareness and energy flow, Subhani explains on her website at tiex.ca.
“One can think of it as Meditative Movement or a Mindful Dance where every movement is intentional, and every result varies on the effort of the individual. A technique that allows individuals from all walks of life to develop and enjoy their own practice and reap benefits beyond just the physical.”
Subhani says that there is no cost to join her classes. “I do it from my heart,” she says. “I do this free, because I love my mother, and I see in seniors, my mother (who passed away in 2007).
I see my mother (in others), and I want to give them this happiness and the freedom to live and to be inclusive in the community. This is my passion. Now, this has become quite global because I get students joining me from as far away as Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, UK, and Israel.
Subhani offers in-person and Zoom classes that are meant to help soothe the body and soul. Visit tiex.ca for more information.
