Testimonial from Kate, South Africa:
"I started Nia in 2003 but had not made it to class in the last 5 years. The Nia retreat in Cambodia inspired me to dance again! It combined my two passions, dancing and travelling! I travelled alone from South Africa and was warmly welcomed by my dear friend Tanja and her partner Rebecca. From the first morning to the last it was an incredible experience with a well organized and planned itinerary that allowed plenty of "me time", fabulous Nia classes and workshops, site seeing and a chance to immerse myself into the culture of Cambodia. I made friends, dropped a dress size with all the dancing and gained a richer life with the perspective that travelling in Cambodia gave me. I am so grateful to Tanja and Rebecca for creating such a unique and memorable life changing experience for me. "

Notes About This Event

Join international Nia Black Belt teacher and trainer Ann Christiansen for a powerful Playshop titled LIFE.

The cycles of LIFE and the LIFE FORCE within our bodies are touched by dance. As we let go of thinking and striving we tap into our natural state. We allow the movements to BIRTH themselves and have a LIFE of their own.
We ask how can I sense more LIFE in my movements by connecting to the music, breath and all of the Realms - Body, Mind, Emotions and Spirit? The chemistry that the human body releases when connecting to music and dance is Healing, Unity, Connection and JOY. 

Join us to Enliven your Life force!

Testimonials from last year’s retreat:

“I attended a mini retreat with Ken Gilbert in 2015. I enjoyed Ken's unique style and was impressed with the depth, sensitivity, focus and creativity he displayed as a facilitator. I would definitely attend other events or trainings he runs.” Jodie Munn, Tamborine Mountain.

“I attended my first Nia retreat with Ken Gilbert in April 2015 & had an absolutely wonderful experience. 

I learned so much, revelled in the joy of the movements & enjoyed Ken's teaching style all of which helped pave my path for the White Belt with Sophie in November.  Many thanks Ken & Lorraine.” x Patricia Shaw, Brisbane

“What can I say about my retreat experience…other than it is responsible for my undertaking white belt and now blue belt…had decided next BlueB Ken was undertaking, I would be there!

Notes About This Class

Please note class dates: 15/8, 22/8, 29/8,5/9 ...2015

I will be offering a half hour class in the Nia 5 Stages at the Brunswick Heads School Hall before regular Nia.

Time: 8.30 – 9.00am, followed by Nia 9.00 – 10.00am.

Come along to enhance your somatic awareness and sensation of Pleasure of living in your body!

The Nia 5 Stages is an integrative practice based on the five stages of human development: Embryonic, Creeping, Crawling, Standing, and Walking. Each stage is a foundation for the next. Combined, all five stages help people to integrate physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. When practiced daily, these stages facilitate optimal alignment and function. Practicing the Nia 5 Stages allows your body to naturally reclaim the physical Mobility, Flexibility, Strength, Agility and Stability it needs. 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.

It has been found that benefits can be experienced in as little as five minutes a day and that, no matter how many times practiced, profound changes occurred.

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.

Testimonial from Kate, South Africa:
"I started Nia in 2003 but had not made it to class in the last 5 years. The Nia retreat in Cambodia inspired me to dance again! It combined my two passions, dancing and travelling! I travelled alone from South Africa and was warmly welcomed by my dear friend Tanja and her partner Rebecca. From the first morning to the last it was an incredible experience with a well organized and planned itinerary that allowed plenty of "me time", fabulous Nia classes and workshops, site seeing and a chance to immerse myself into the culture of Cambodia. I made friends, dropped a dress size with all the dancing and gained a richer life with the perspective that travelling in Cambodia gave me. I am so grateful to Tanja and Rebecca for creating such a unique and memorable life changing experience for me. "
