Notes About This Class

Class format:     Nia 

The Nia experience is sensational!

Every class guides students to mindfully focus on sensation in their body while listening and dancing to music. Each class has its own kind of magic that fosters personal creativity and expression.

Nia is practiced barefoot. Through non-impact choreography and listening to the intelligence of the body’s design, Nia delivers a holistic fitness experience. Every class is adaptable to individual needs and abilities, with movers empowered to explore a variety of intensity levels and ways to modify movements to safely condition their bodies.

Notes About This Event

One of the greatest gifts of being in a human body is that we get to experience sensation. Sensation anchors our attention in the present moment by giving us something tactile to focus our attention on. Whether you’re looking to be more present in your everyday activities or work, make healthier food choices, feel more relaxation and less stress, improve your body alignment, be a better listener, or simply reduce the amount of time and mental energy spent analyzing, judging, or forecasting, this playshop is for you! In my Sensory Awakening Playshop, we’ll dynamically explore how to strengthen your body awareness in everyday life using body anchors – simple yet powerful mindfulness practices that can help you be more attuned to what you’re sensing, when you’re sensing it. Learn how to use sensation as a grounding force for your attention and to expand your body awareness so that you perceive even more. Come prepared to move and sweat as we explore this focus through experiential movement, dance, and group discussion.

Notes About This Class

Experience gentle, mindful, self-healing as you are guided through five simple moves that naturally realign your body for flexibility, strenghth, agility and ease. Based on the stages of human development – embryonic, creeping, crawling, standing and walking. Renew, energize and consciously condition your body, mind, emotions and spirit. Adults who revisit these prmary patterns, move better, feel better and enhance energy flow from the ground up. Each class has a unique focus that includes the delivery of a somatic anatomy lesson to deepen your body knowledge. 

A  Nia 5 STAGES practice adds a fluid grace to movement, strengthens the entirer body and re-aligns the spine. Develop greater flexibility in rising up and down with ease. I have replaced chiropractic visits with a mindful, daily practice.

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.

Every class is adaptable to individual needs and abilities, with movers empowered to explore a variety of intensity levels and ways to modify movements to safely condition their bodies.

Notes About This Class

As we dance into April 2019, our focus for the month will be how to create Nourishing Nia Movement.  

Full nourishment means we practice a mind/body balance dance.  
Throughout our daily movement we check in with ourselves and ask “does this feel good to my body”.  
Simple, we think, but putting it into our mind/body dance practice may be challenging. 
I will be introducing new moves to awaken the mechanics of the body and shift movement patterns,
all the while creating mind/body balance to nourish our movement practice.  
Yummm!

Notes About This Class

Experience gentle, mindful, self-healing as you are guided through five simple moves that naturally realign your body for flexibility, strenghth, agility and ease. Based on the stages of human development – embryonic, creeping, crawling, standing and walking. Renew, energize and consciously condition your body, mind, emotions and spirit. Adults who revisit these prmary patterns, move better, feel better and enhance energy flow from the ground up. Each class has a unique focus that includes the delivery of a somatic anatomy lesson to deepen your body knowledge. 

A  Nia 5 STAGES practice adds a fluid grace to movement, strengthens the entirer body and re-aligns the spine. Develop greater flexibility in rising up and down with ease. I have replaced chiropractic visits with a mindful, daily practice.
