This is the Way
Although shocking to some, others are drawn to the sensual aesthetics that speak to their instincts that tell them, “This is the way.” These are the people who step into the romanticism of working out, where the most important relationship they will ever have is birthed: the one between their body, mind, emotions, and spirit.
Nia staged a fitness revolution in 1983. We’ve never stopped inventing a new kind of fitness creature, one where femininity and grace are honored, balancing the masculine side that has dominated this industry. The silhouette of a Nia dancer moving in space looks and feels different from our traditional concept of fitness. Although shocking to some, others are drawn to the sensual aesthetics that speak to their instincts that tell them, “This is the way.” These are the people who step into the romanticism of working out, where the most important relationship they will ever have is birthed: the one between their body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Expressed lavishly and for no other reason but to feel and look good, fitness emerges, health improves, and life in a body becomes an extraordinary experience. The vision of Nia is not your ordinary workout. It is “The Workout.”
I pride myself on transforming how people live and move in their body. The status quo is never good enough for me, which is why I stand in the role of visionary and leader.
“Body literacy” is a term I coined to describe having the knowledge and skills to read and interpret the messages of your body. Listening to signals of healthy and unhealthy comes from reading and interpreting the language of the body. This language speaks through the voice of sensation. Once you can sense health and well-being you can make healthy choices and decisions for your body and life. A great way to begin is to recognize the body itself as your partner. You’re a team. Get to know your partner, what they do, need and desire. Only in this way can you build a healthy and meaningful relationship that, in the end, will help you in creating the body and life you desire.
The body says, “I am the voice of The Body's Way, a design and map that gives you a path to follow and explore living life in a body—life in your body. My living structures - atoms, molecules, cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, and you the organism - create the grand scheme you know as the human body. I am your partner. My set points, with positive and negative feedback systems, keep you and I balanced, centered, healthy and well. Listen to me. Work with me, as I am listening to you every second of the day. Asleep, awake, aware, I am always paying attention and looking out for our best interest, working to survive and live a meaningful and healthy life at any age.
Look closely at my layers of tissue that, to you, present parts of the whole. Listen to me, as through my design I tell you exactly how my parts are meant to be treated and used. A grand pyramid, I reveal intricate inner workings and a most magical design that helps you function and live life fully. A microcosm of the macrocosm, our partnership is one with the universe. I give rise to personal and soul expression. Use me. I provide a platform for achieving personal mastery. Use me. Follow the path of least resistance and you and I will thrive. Seek dynamic ease and fill every moment with the sensation of love and joy and unlimited potential is ours.
It is essential that you get to know me in order to understand the gift of the human body and your body: the temple and home of your unique spirit. Magical, scientific, and mystical, I am designed to produce sex cells, giving the next generation new life, where over time I can transform humanity into something more loving, conscious, and respectful.
Touch me, love me. Sense the outer skin-coat I provide that protects you, that keeps you warm and safe. Stand tall, change shape, move quickly and slowly. Get to know my bones, cartilage, ligaments, and skeletal, smooth, and cardiac muscles - all parts of me that make it possible for you to move and also be still.
Feel excited and you tap into my grand communication center. Consciously recognize when your mood shifts and you will get to know me as an emotional being.
Come with me and taste the sweetness of apples. Designed to be chemically and physically perfect, and to live in a constant state of equilibrium, I, we are born out of love and light.
Together, let us self-heal, change, transform, and strengthen our connections to the sacred wonders of life that make living in a body profound.
