Join First Generation Nia Trainer Britta Von Tagen for an in depth exploration of her unique and powerful routine "SOUL". This event is for Every Body - students and teachers welcome.

Soul brings the spirit of the 52 Moves to life. Earthy and raw, this routine blends the percussive, live instrumentation of Native American music with thick electronic beats, awakening the primal dance within. 

"Soul is my gift to the world. It is my life's passage through The Pacific Northwest in North America to the Pacific Ocean. Every move tells a story of the Earth through the 52 Moves and the Native American Indian "Pow Wow", a universal dance of celebration." - Britta

This is Britta's first time in Australia and we are blessed to have her in Ocean Shores for a whole week! The Soul Immersion leads into the Nia Green Belt the following day.

Notes About This Event

In our fast paced lives we've gotten used to busy minds, sitting a lot and moving in repetitive ways. That's why bodies love Nia - a fun, spirited and mindful movement practice inspired by martial arts, dance and healing modalities. This one hour Nia taster is for every body who wants to begin living and moving with more awareness, creativity and energy! 

Let your body find it's own rhythm, sense your breath and and rediscover the sensation of aliveness that you knew as a playful child. Reconnect to feeling good, with easy-to-learn movement and soul-inspiring music.  Perth based Nia teacher Andrea Pauquet Litchfield shares this great introduction to Nia or you can jump into a week exploring and learning the 'Art of Sensation' with Nia Trainer Sophie Marsh 4-10 December 2015.

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.
