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. Move better, feel better from the ground up. Each class deivers a somatic anatomy lesson to deepen your body knowledge. 

Personally, the 5 STAGES has added a fluid grace to my movement, strengthened my upper body and re-aligned my spine, allowing me to rise up and down with ease. I have replaced chiropractic visits with a mindful, 5-minute 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.

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. Move better, feel better from the ground up. Each class deivers a somatic anatomy lesson to deepen your body knowledge. 

Personally, the 5 STAGES has added a fluid grace to my movement, strengthened my upper body and re-aligned my spine, allowing me to rise up and down with ease. I have replaced chiropractic visits with a mindful, 5-minute daily practice.

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.

Laurie's classes are soulful, healing and exceedingly fun!
