Nia in the Park

This summer we have been dancing outside, safely distanced. What a joy! There will 2 more classes in September--Saturdays, September 19 and 26, 9:30 am at Hidden Falls Park in St. Paul
For more information check out my Nia Classes with Beth Giles Facebook event page.


For those new to Zoom Classes, you’ll need:

A computer with internet access with a camera and microphone (you don’t have to have a camera, we just won’t be able to see you on the screen. Most laptops have a camera built in and a microphone.) 

From what I can tell, using Google Chrome as your Web Browser might work best.  You can download Zoom at ahead of time or when you click on the meeting link when I send the invitation to join the meeting, Zoom will automatically download.

You can also do this on an iPad or smart phone. You’ll need the Zoom Cloud app on your tablet or phone.       

Set up a space to move in and have your computer, tablet or phone set up where you can see it.

Move furniture and test out when you kick or raise your arms that have room around you.

Create a space that feels welcoming to you, remove distractions if you can

Comfortable clothes to move in


A yoga mat or blanket if you want for the end of class

Click on the link for the day of the week of the class. You can enter the “class” 15 minutes before the class start. If you enter late, no worries, please mute yourself.  We will do introductions before the class start time and I'll do my best to start and end class on time. Everyone is welcome to hang out in the room at the end of class to talk and connect.

We’ll see each other in little video boxes on the screen. If you don’t want to be seen on the screen you can “stop” your video, and still see me and others and hear us. 

When class starts I’ll mute everyone but me. The music and my voice coming through your computer may be not perfect at times, please be patient with it. Get into your body and sensations and let the outside world fade into the background as much as you can. This will be a regular 55 minute class. If people want to stay at the end and talk, I’d feel very happy to do that.  We have unlimited time in the meeting room.


I’m hopeful that we’ll emerge from this time so much more connected, loving, and compassionate and that our culture and world will have shifted into a new age.  Let’s keep choosing joy both as a sensation of life force and as positive outlook. Everything is going to be alright….
