Notes About This Class

Discover the Joy of Movement Medicine

Nia is a gift of self-love and care. Come and explore the pleasure of moving your body, your natural way to exhilerating music.

Nia offers gentle and low-impact moves that you can intensify if you yourself chose to – choice that brings you closer to your organic, authentic self.

When the body moves it rejoices into relaxation – a place where one can heal body, mind, emotions and spirit.  

Nia is a gift of self-love and care. 

Redlands Class begins Wednesday June 3rd. 

Oriana Mac Giolla Ri's classes are infused with passion and joy, leaving you feeling grounded and more intimate with your sacred self.

Notes About This Event

Immerse in the Nia 5 Stages, a simple process to realign the body and refresh, reinvigorate and recreate your body-mind-spirit connection.  Your body will 'remember' how to move in its own way through these 5 'self-healing' Stages of Embryonic, Creeping, Crawling, Standing and Walking.  And you'll find that they increase your connection to body sensation and your ability to feel better.  Simple.  Effective.  Life-changing.

Join Ann Boon, Cameron Boon and Alison Gregory, all of whom share a passion for this practice and a desire to share its benefits with many.  This playshop is perfect for complete beginners and grads.  We'll immerse in the practice and explore ways to modify and adapt for every body type.   All welcome.

Notes About This Event

"For everyone looking to really dive into embodying the wisdom of The Body's Way, the 5 Stages is your answer." ~ Debbie Rosas, Nia Co-Founder

A one hour class experience that will stimulate your sensory IQ and awaken body awareness. The Nia 5 stages, an integrative movement practice based on the five stages of human development: Embryonic, Creeping, Crawling, Standing and Walking. A deceptively simple and powerful practice for optimal alignment, improved function and comfort in the body. 

Stay on after 8 a.m. Nia .... or just come to experience the 5 Stages.  There'll also be an opportunity to find out more about the upcoming Nia 5 stages training in Brisbane 13-14 January with Laurie Bass.

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

What is Nia?

Nia is a movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance and healing arts. Classes are taken barefoot to wonderful music and 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. Every class offers a unique blend of movement and music that condition and energise the main areas of the body: base, core and upper extremities. Absolute beginners and highly fit athletes alike can adapt Nia to meet their needs by choosing from three intensity levels.

How does Nia work?

Nia has 52 moves that optimize the body's natural design. Nia choreography is simple and is sparked & energised by playing with the 9 movement forms that Nia draws its inspiration from : Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, Jazz dance, Modern dance, Duncan dance, Yoga, Alexander Technique and the work of Moshe Feldenkrais.  Every class is different, every teacher and student bring their own gifts to the practice and everybody is welcome to move in their own way.  You are invited to step in and experience Nia for yourself!

Notes About This Class

The Nia 5 Stages class experience is an hour-long guided moving meditation. You'll learn a fun, simple and powerful way to explore anatomy and integrate that exploration into your own body in an effortless and relaxing way.  Practising the Nia 5 Stages leads to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being by tapping into the five stages of human development: embryonic, creeping, crawling, standing and walking. These five stages are the preverbal stages we all went through to develop physically as a child. Each stage is a foundation for the next. Not only did they prepare you physically to stand up, each stage strengthened your body's bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, organs, emotions, senses, and thinking and intuiting parts at the right time.

Combined, all five stages organically realign your body by helping you reclaim the physical Mobility, Flexibility, Strength, Agility and Stability it needs. When practiced daily, these stages facilitate optimal alignment and function. They also help people to integrate physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. The continual practice of the Nia 5 Stages provides a way for the body to do what it does best, take care of itself and to self-heal. When allowed to, the body will always move towards healing, seeking how to function optimally.

What do you need to bring?

The Nia 5 Stages is a gentle practice and you will be moving your body, so please wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in. No shoes are needed. Kneepads will be provided.

Your views on Nia 4 Kids:

“Nia has brought happiness and joy into my life. I always look forward to my Nia class and smile the whole way through. I will be sending my daughter to Nia4Kids so she can also experience this joy!” JOCIE, Everton Park

“Through Nia I have experienced lightness while moving and an understanding that dance is individual and does not have to look or be a particular way. It’s fun and inner calming at the same time. I believe kids will love that they don’t have to be exact with the movements and they will really enjoy the freedom Nia brings.”  CAROL, Albany Creek

“My daughter loves music and she loves to move in response to great sounds. The Nia routines have wonderful music and it gives her the freedom to move how she feels, within a well-planned structure. There are no mistakes in Nia, so not only is it great exercise, it is also good for her confidence. Nia makes me feel great. The movements are easy; they feel natural and there is freedom within the form of the routines and what I love most about Nia is the music.” YOLANDA, Arana Hills

Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts and healing arts.

'Movement and dance is the hidden language of the soul; we are all sacred dancers celebrating each in our own way, the gift of being the body. Inspired by my concert pianist father, my philosphy is that synergy of Breath, Music and Movement connects us to universal joy, fosters communities, and provides transformational pathways towards conscious living. Nia provides endless opportunities to integrate creativity, consious living and vibrant health with a balanced life.'

Notes About This Class

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

What is Nia?

Nia is a movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance and healing arts. Classes are taken barefoot to wonderful music and 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. Every class offers a unique blend of movement and music that condition and energise the main areas of the body: base, core and upper extremities. Absolute beginners and highly fit athletes alike can adapt Nia to meet their needs by choosing from three intensity levels.

How does Nia work?

Nia has 52 moves that optimize the body's natural design. Nia choreography is simple and is sparked & energised by playing with the 9 movement forms that Nia draws its inspiration from : Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, Jazz dance, Modern dance, Duncan dance, Yoga, Alexander Technique and the work of Moshe Feldenkrais.  Every class is different, every teacher and student bring their own gifts to the practice and everybody is welcome to move in their own way.  You are invited to step in and experience Nia for yourself!
