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

5 Week Block - Early Morning Nia 5 Stages Classes - Co-facilitated with Cameron Boon

Wednesdays starting 4 March, including 11, 18, 25 March & 1 April

"The simplest way I can describe the Nia 5 Stages is that it is a process of un-ravelling and re-ravelling your body.  The goal is simply to feel better afterwards.  The 5 stages is not an end in itself, but it has the power to be a tremendous enabler. Whatever your thing, you will do it better with a more lithe and limber assemblage of bones, muscle and brains." Cameron Boon

Notes About This Class

The Nia 5 Stages class experience is a guided moving meditation. You'll learn a fun, simple and powerful way to explore anatomy and integrate that exploration into your own body in an effortless and relaxing way.  Practising the Nia 5 Stages leads to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being by tapping into the five stages of human development: embryonic, creeping, crawling, standing and walking. These five stages are the preverbal stages we all went through to develop physically as a child. Each stage is a foundation for the next. Not only did they prepare you physically to stand up, each stage strengthened your body's bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, organs, emotions, senses, and thinking and intuiting parts at the right time.

Please wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in. No shoes are needed. Kneepads will be provided.

Your views on Nia 4 Kids:

“Nia has brought happiness and joy into my life. I always look forward to my Nia class and smile the whole way through. I will be sending my daughter to Nia4Kids so she can also experience this joy!” JOCIE, Everton Park

“Through Nia I have experienced lightness while moving and an understanding that dance is individual and does not have to look or be a particular way. It’s fun and inner calming at the same time. I believe kids will love that they don’t have to be exact with the movements and they will really enjoy the freedom Nia brings.”  CAROL, Albany Creek

“My daughter loves music and she loves to move in response to great sounds. The Nia routines have wonderful music and it gives her the freedom to move how she feels, within a well-planned structure. There are no mistakes in Nia, so not only is it great exercise, it is also good for her confidence. Nia makes me feel great. The movements are easy; they feel natural and there is freedom within the form of the routines and what I love most about Nia is the music.” YOLANDA, Arana Hills

Notes About This Class

The Nia 5 Stages class experience is an hour-long guided moving meditation. You'll learn a fun, simple and powerful way to explore anatomy and integrate that exploration into your own body in an effortless and relaxing way.  Practising the Nia 5 Stages leads to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being by tapping into the five stages of human development: embryonic, creeping, crawling, standing and walking. These five stages are the preverbal stages we all went through to develop physically as a child. Each stage is a foundation for the next. Not only did they prepare you physically to stand up, each stage strengthened your body's bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, organs, emotions, senses, and thinking and intuiting parts at the right time.

Combined, all five stages organically realign your body by helping you reclaim the physical Mobility, Flexibility, Strength, Agility and Stability it needs. When practiced daily, these stages facilitate optimal alignment and function. They also help people to integrate physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. The continual practice of the Nia 5 Stages provides a way for the body to do what it does best, take care of itself and to self-heal. When allowed to, the body will always move towards healing, seeking how to function optimally.

What do you need to bring?

The Nia 5 Stages is a gentle practice and you will be moving your body, so please wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in. No shoes are needed. Kneepads will be provided.

Notes About This Class

What is Nia?

Nia is a movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance and healing arts. Classes are taken barefoot to wonderful music and 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. Every class offers a unique blend of movement and music that condition and energise the main areas of the body: base, core and upper extremities. Absolute beginners and highly fit athletes alike can adapt Nia to meet their needs by choosing from three intensity levels.

How does Nia work?

Nia has 52 moves that optimize the body's natural design. Nia choreography is simple and is sparked & energised by playing with the 9 movement forms that Nia draws its inspiration from : Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, Jazz dance, Modern dance, Duncan dance, Yoga, Alexander Technique and the work of Moshe Feldenkrais.  Every class is different, every teacher and student bring their own gifts to the practice and everybody is welcome to move in their own way.  You are invited to step in and experience Nia for yourself!
