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 Event

Reward your body and refresh your spirit with a unique vacation in Cambutal, Panama, at Sansara Surf and Yoga Resort. Located at the southernmost tip of Panama in the Azuero Peninsula, Sansara is set where the mountains meet the sea. This is a tropical wonderland in an uncrowded locale with lush vegetation, wild birds, and monkey swinging through the tree tops. 

Beth O’Neall will teach daily Nia classes. The studio is open-air and faces the ocean. There is a tropical hardwood deck with surround sound that’s perfect for both yoga and dance. It has mood lighting and candles for evening. Siobhan O’Neall will teach daily Vinyasa flow yoga classes with a focus on breath and alignment. 

In the evenings, we can build a bonfire and have a Cinema-Under-the-Stars night. Plan on a game night and a dance party. During the day, Sansara keeps bicycles and snorkeling gear at the resort, which can be used at no charge. There is a cave walk and a walk to tide pools or a waterfall (weather depending). Guests may sign up for one complimentary SUP or kayak rental as well as one complimentary surf lesson. 

Give yourself the gift of a time out, a step away from your daily work. Step into movement, joy, and your authentic self.  

Beth O'Neall is a dynamic Nia teacher with classes that bring us deep into our own hearts and closer together as a group. Go to www.betterandbolder.com to learn more about Beth and find out more about this retreat.

The rooms are gorgeous! Reserve yours by June 30, 2015, to save $200 and get the room of your choice.
