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.

Nia 5 Stages of Self-Healing 5-Week Series - Receiving Healing from the Body

When: Sundays - January 12, 19, 26 and February 2 and 9, 2014

Time: 1:00pm - 2:00pm

Where: The Dance Space in Greenwood - 124 N 103rd Street, Seattle, WA 98133

Contact me with any questions about this series: jennifer@everybodyloveyourbody.com

The Nia 5 Stages is an integrative practice based on the five stages of human development: embryonic, creeping, crawling, standing and walking.

When the body moves through the Nia 5 Stages, the body, mind, emotions, and spirit naturally realign, unify and integrate, leaving a greater sense of wholeness, health and well-being. Developed as a practice, these stages lead to changes that improve one's physical comfort, ability to move efficiently, and improvement in whole body functioning and posture.

This 5-week series will introduce you to the Nia 5 Stages and emphasizes how this practice allows us to receive healing from the body.

Notes About This Class

Nia Practice with Faculty Trainer, Jill Pagano

This 6-week class is dedicated to practicing Nia's 52 moves using the routine SOUL. Each week we'll review a song from SOUL, learn the 52 moves in the song and practice them with and without the music.  You'll get hands-on instruction on crafting the move in your body, based on your body's way. Practicing Nia's 52 moves enhances your embodiment, conditions specific parts of the body (ie hand techniques condition the hands) and enhances your ability to see all Nia routines as a blend of Nia's 52 moves. By learning the 52 moves you'll be able to decode Nia choreography with more ease and move your body with more skill for a greater conditioning effect and less injury-risk.

This series is excellent for the new-to-Nia person!

If you are a Nia White Belt Graduate or Nia Teacher, we'll layer in Nia's Principles for a greater depth of study.

Nia teachers receive a 20% off discount from Drop in or class card rate.

No registration necessary.

Purchasing the Nia book is recommended. We have used copies for discounted pricing at the studio.

Nia - the unexplainably Great fitness just for you.

Whatever your fitness level or body type, learn to move your way while having a blast.

Build strength, flexibility and have fun while doing it. Other side effects may include: more balance, less stress, possible weight loss, sensory awareness and so much more...

We dance and move on a beautiful wood floor in a room filled with light. Moving together we create a community that goes beyond the dance floor. Come, dance, and enjoy.

I look forward to sharing this unexplainably great fitness program with you.

See you on the dance floor!

Notes About This Event

Deepen your self-awareness and sharpen your communication and leadership skills using the ancient bond we have with horses.  Nia & Horses Training is a three-day immersive experience that teaches you to explore physical sensation and move in harmony with a well-trained, gentle horse partner on the ground.  

Each day begins with an energizing Nia exercise class designed to stimulate your sensory awareness, creative expression, and sense of play.  You’ll release tension and get moving. From this place of positive self-relationship, you’ll begin your somatic horse education, learning safety principles in preparation to meet the horses. Next, you’ll explore horse grooming rituals and ground "play" through a series of playful and energetic exercises with the other participants and the horses.  These activities are enhanced using the sounds of nature and music.

Throughout each day, you’ll enjoy a variety of creative sessions, movement meditations and artistic exercises that will inspire you to energetically self-connect to your true nature, moment-to-moment.  You’ll learn to make safe choices when directing your own energy and, ultimately, you’ll connect, blend with, and lead your horse partner’s energy.  You’ll hone your human collaboration skills too by working in ‘sacred herds’ - small teams of people with a horse – as you learn to dance together with your horse.

Notes About This Event

Join Jason Alan Griffin for a special class on Monday, July 18 at 9:30 AM. He is sharing his new routine, "Amazing!"

Based on the work of Debbie Rosas and Carlos AyaRosas, this original routine was co-created through choreography playshops with JAG in 13 Nia communities accross the country. Each community created one of the songs. The focus of this routine is on "Connections and Directions" with the intention to "Explore Somewhere New and Return Home Enriched." 

JAG travels with his dog, River, who sleeps in his crate during class. Please ignore him so he can relax. 

*Studio rates apply*
