Notes About This Event


Join Nia training faculty Rachael Resch for this brand new workshop.

The Way of the Sacred Athlete is the body's way, dedicated to the art of self-mastery through comfort and safety.  The Sacred Athlete embodies the biology of Yang arising from Yin.

Come cultivate strength, flexibility, agility, mobility and stability of body and of spirit to reconsecrate your body and your life. Apply principles from Feldenkrais, martial arts, biomechanics and the neuroscience of safety to bring forth the gift of your uniqueness to the world.

7 CEUs for LMTs, PTs, OTs, DCs


You entered the form you are in
in order to give a holy message.
If that seems too direct, I'll put it another way:
An envoy from the inconceivable 
hides within each one of us.
And then the question becomes,
What is it that you need to say to us and do?


- Hafiz
(translated by Daniel Ladinsky)

Give your body the gift of reflection and renewal during three weeks of Advent Nia classes and events.

Notes About This Class

Join Rachael Resch and Kim Faith for this special Wednesday evening Nia class focusing on Form + Freedom.

We alternate between the form of classic Nia and the freedom of Nia's new FreeDance classes - and sometimes weave them together!

FreeDance practice is Nia's free-form conscious dance practice.  FreeDance is the foundation for all Nia choreography.  It's what makes Nia choregraphy deep and fun and personal.

By balancing form and freedom, you'll increase neuroplasticity, self-awareness, vitality, physical fitness, healing and inspiration your body’s way.

BREATH INSIDE THE BREATH: Inspiration

Saturday, February 21 • 9:00 am-5:00 pm

This Mythic Body workshop is inspired by the 15th century Indian poet, Kabir who said, “Student, tell me, what is God?  He is the breath inside the breath.”  We’ll use simple movement and breath exercises, music and poetry to explore the fundamental yet extraordinary act of breathing from scientific, somatic and spiritual perspectives.  You’ll learn about the ecology of breath and atmosphere, as well as healing techniques for body, mind and spirit.

CHALICE OF THE PELVIS: Center
Sunday, February 22 • 9:00 am-5:00 pm  

Centering is the most powerful stand we can take in our bodies and in our lives - for ourselves, each other and for the Earth.  This Mythic Body workshop draws its inspiration from meditation and martial arts, and its strength from the law of gravity, which asks everything in the Universe to relate center-to-center.  We’ll use simple movement exercises, music and poetry to explore the body center, hara, pelvis and sacrum as they relate to the center of the World and the center of our lives.

Price of workshop includes Nia class.​

The human body is a Jacob’s Ladder between Earth and heaven.  Inspired by the World Tree or axis mundi in all traditions, this Mythic Body workshop guides participants to apply scientific, somatic and spiritual inquiry to aspects of human anatomy, such as bones, blood, nervous system, in order to understand and experience them as fractals of the Earth and of the cosmos at large.  Participants use movement to experience the ecology of vertical and horizontal systems in the body designed to integrate heaven and Earth, embodying the alchemical dictum, “As above, so below” as a methodology for connecting to Allness.

About Nia

What is Nia?

Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts and healing arts. It empowers people of all shapes and sizes by connecting the body, mind, emotions and spirit. Classes are taken barefoot to soul-stirring music in more than 45 countries. Trainings are designed for those seeking personal enrichment and professional development. Every experience can be adapted to individual needs and abilities. Step into your own joyful journey with Nia, and positively shape the way you feel, look, think and live.

How does Nia work?

Nia draws from Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, jazz dance, modern dance, Duncan dance, yoga, Alexander Technique and Teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais. Every class offers a unique combination of 52 moves that correspond with the main areas of the body: the base, the core and the upper extremities. Stiff beginners and highly fit athletes alike can adapt Nia to meet their needs by choosing from three intensity levels. Consecutive trainings collectively explore 52 principles for personal enrichment and professional development. Read testimonials from people of all ages, backgrounds and locations.

Why was Nia created?

Nia’s purpose is to grow a worldwide community of healthy people who are empowered to do great things. We believe every person can discover, explore, unleash and enhance their individual potential to live a fulfilling and meaningful life – by engaging their senses and listening to their bodies. With the right tools and education, we can increase our confidence and happiness. We can become connected to others to shape a consciousness that extends beyond our own. Together we will unearth possibilities never before imagined.

Notes About This Class

Join Rachael Resch and Kim Faith for this special Wednesday evening Nia class focusing on Form + Freedom.

We alternate between the form of classic Nia and the freedom of Nia's new FreeDance classes - and sometimes weave them together!

FreeDance practice is Nia's free-form conscious dance practice.  FreeDance is the foundation for all Nia choreography.  It's what makes Nia choregraphy deep and fun and personal.

By balancing form and freedom, you'll increase neuroplasticity, self-awareness, vitality, physical fitness, healing and inspiration your body’s way.
