Notes About This Event

Join Nia Australia Faculty Trainer Sophie Marsh for an afternoon of music, movement and magic.  This is an ideal "Intro to Nia" and is also for all students and teachers who want the next layer of awareness and Joy. We're pulling the Classic "Carlos" Nia routine "Aya" out of the vault (2008) as our playground to explore the felt sense of grounded centre, balance, calm and relaxed readiness and to cultivate a deeper relationship with one's self ~ body, mind, emotion and spirit.

We'll get into the FUNdamentals of Nia - The Body's Way, Nia's 52 moves, 5 Sensations of fitness, and moving to heal. A 1-hour class experience is included, with every aspect of the choreography designed to stimulate the sensation of stability.  

Stability is sensed as energy moving out in all directions from the centre. It is the physical feeling of harmony and peace combined with readiness for action. Dynamic stability (the perfect balance of all 5 sensations - Flexibility, Agility, Mobility, Strength, Stability) relaxes your body and is sensed as a powerful peace. When you sense stability, you can sustain whole-body movement while the Voice of Your Body says, “I feel relaxed; I can balance and I recognize stability because I feel it.”

Just say, "Sign me up!"

Notes About This Event

Join International Nia Trainer Ann Christiansen for a fun and functional playshop, exploring how to make the floor your friend and get more out of every Floorplay experience, both in class and in your home practice. 

Nia's Floorplay uses your body and the floor to achieve self-healing and holistic fitness.  Organic in nature, Floorplay is designed to be personal, adaptable, enjoyable, graceful, and powerful, just like your body is designed to be. The words pleasure, play and comfort are at the heart of the practice, reconnecting you to a pre-verbal instinct inside you that knows how to move to heal.

Developing this connection to your body’s inner wisdom will enhance everything you do in your body:  the way you dance, run, ski, lift weights, practice yoga, make love, get up and down from the floor, and experience any sport, body, or life practice.

Open to Nia newbies, students, grads and teachers... this delicious body-centred offering has something for every body.

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

Gentle Nia is an hour-long movement experience set to music, which is playful and relaxing. This Gentle Nia class uses all the elements of classic Nia like the 52 moves, 9 movement forms, 5 sensations, 3 planes, 3 intensity levels, vocal sounding and emotional expression. It's adaptable to every body and is slower and gentler than a classic Nia class. It provides the time and space for you to connect to life-force energy and move in your body’s way with the intention to self-heal. 

“The music is fabulous and the movements are simple. If you haven’t done Nia before it doesn’t matter. You’re welcome to come along anytime and give it a go. To learn more, give me a call on 0437 392 424. Nia classes are suitable for every ‘body’ and no experience is necessary.” Ann 

If it’s been a while since you moved your body, Nia meets you where you’re at and invites you to move in your own way. Here are some tips on how to start exercising again.

Notes About This Class

Classic Nia is what you see in the videos. It's an hour long fitness class combining elements of dance, martial arts and healing movement therapies, that offers a cardio-vascular workout without the impact of zumba or aerobics. It's practised barefoot but you can wear shoes it you need to. Each class begins with a focus and intent, stepping into warm up, get moving, cool down, floorplay and then a conscious step out. Key elements of Nia include using awareness of the body, mind, emotions and spirit and choosing to practice being with body sensations that feel good. If it’s been a while since you moved your body, there’s no need to worry. Nia meets you where you’re at and invites you to move in your own body’s way. 

“The music is fabulous and the movements are simple. If you haven’t done Nia before it doesn’t matter. You’re welcome to come along anytime and give it a go. To learn more, give me a call on 0437 392 424. Nia classes are suitable for every ‘body’ and no experience is necessary.” Ann

Increase energy and relaxation while learning to adapt movement to your health needs. It's an "I feel Better" experience.

Nia Foundations *Special 6 week Intro to Nia Program* : 
While designed to provide those New to Nia with an overview of the practice, and build knowledge of and confidence in performing the moves, this program is just as relevant to those who have been attending classes for a while, in order to deepen their practice and understanding of the philosophies behind what happens on the dancefloor.

Notes About This Class

Night-time Nia with Ann is fun!  And we dance by fairylights ...

Classic Nia is what you see in the videos. It's an hour long fitness class combining elements of dance, martial arts and healing movement therapies, that offers a cardio-vascular workout without the impact of zumba or aerobics. It's practised barefoot but you can wear shoes it you need to. Each class begins with a focus and intent, stepping into warm up, get moving, cool down, floorplay and then a conscious step out. Key elements of Nia include using awareness of the body, mind, emotions and spirit and choosing to practice being with body sensations that feel good. If it’s been a while since you moved your body, there’s no need to worry. Nia meets you where you’re at and invites you to move in your own body’s way. 

“The music is fabulous and the movements are simple. You’re welcome to come along anytime and give it a go. To learn more, give me a call on 0437 392 424. Nia classes are suitable for every ‘body’ and no experience is necessary.” Ann

Notes About This Event

Nia® is a fun, invigorating and healing movement practice that integrates concepts from dance, martial arts, yoga and mindfulness. It invites you to reconnect with your body and embrace your Joy of Movement in a way that feels sustainable, connected and alive. Nia creates a life-changing way of moving and living in your body, mind, emotions and spirit... and it's never too late to begin!

Get a taste of Nia in this 1.5 hour playshop that's ideal for beginners. Seasoned Nia students are also welcome to revisit the FUNdamentals with us! As Australia's most experienced Nia teacher and only Nia Trainer, I'd love to share my passion for Nia and the many benefits of this practice with you.

We'll introduce some of Nia's basic principles and get into Nia's foundational moves set to an eclectic mix of music. If you want to stay after, I'll be around until 11.30 am to answer any questions about Nia classes and the Nia White Belt training.

All ages and levels of fitness are welcome and no prior experience of any kind is required!
