Notes About This Event

Craft your Body and Life using Nia’s 9 Movement Forms

In any given situation, we have the opportunity to choose how we show up—are we soft and yielding or assertive and quick? Do we bring a sassiness and flair to a situation or are we deeply reflective? What type of energy is abundant in your personality and how can you craft your energy consciously? Consciously choosing how we energize any situation allows us to actively contribute to the outcome of our life.

Want more joy and playfulness? Spice your life with the energy the Dance Arts.

Need more grounding, focus and direction? Bring in the energy of the Martial Arts.

Is it time for self-care and nurturing? Invite in the Healing Arts.

Want to shift your mood? How about alter an outcome? Ever get that feeling that if you responded differently, you’d have a different result?

Learn and play with Nia’s 9 energy personalities and witness how you can enhance both your body and your life!
In this playshop, you’ll:
*Taste Nia’s 9 unique and complimentary energy personalities (our movement forms).
*Discover which energy personalities you use—overuse or underuse.
*Experience your body revealing to you your energy personalities.
*Learn how to use the 9 movement forms to condition your body for more mind- body- emotion balance.

You’ll be introduced to Nia’s way of getting to know your energy personalities so you have access to all parts of you. Additionally, you’ll witness which energy forms you use as a reaction and discover alternative ways to “respond” by your own choice. Change the energy of your response and you can have an effect on any situation, and yourself, consciously

The Energy Personalities are Nia’s 9 Movement Forms:
*Martial Arts (organic precision): Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, Tai Chi
*Dance Arts (emotional expression) : Modern dance, Duncan dance and Jazz
*Healing Arts (functional state): The work of Moshe Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique and Yoga

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

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.
