Nia Wellness Movement Tips

Use these movement tips to experience moving "The Body's Way."

Nia Education - The Body's Way

Nia movements are guided by The Body’s Way, which is a method of using the body according to its inherent design and function. We seek dynamic ease – the ability to perform a movement with maximum efficiency and minimal effort. The Body's Way is guided by five fundamental principles that keep the body functioning optimally.

Who Are You Dancing For?

In Nia, the only person we aim to please is the self. Nia movements are guided by The Body’s Way, which is a method of using the body according to its inherent design and function. Instead of forcing ourselves to bend and twist in ways that strain or injure the body, we seek dynamic ease.

Erotic Voices of The Feminine Spirit

Together, let us return to the spaces inside of women where the seeds of splendor and sexual passion remember their birthright. Together, let us melt into oneness. No longer separated, let us merge our consciousness and awaken a world where feminine sexual passion is like blood running through the veins of Gaia, of women. Let us heal the world with our passion.

Living in Sensation, Living in Your Body

We live in our bodies but that doesn’t mean we are present to them. It is one thing to conceptualize the function of the body. It is another thing to embody it—to feel knowing from your body. What does it mean to truly get in your body?
