You're invited to join physical therapist and Nia Black Belt Rachael Resch for this special 4-week Moving To Heal class series on fall prevention.

Blending principles of exercise physiology, developmental movement and Nia Technique, participants will learn a simple, 7-minute daily practice that conditions muscles, joints and the nervous system to prevent potentially life-altering falls.

“As we age, the body becomes less agile, making us more likely to fall,” says Resch.  “The single most essential skill you can have to prevent falls is the ability to lower yourself to the floor and get back up again with confidence.  This trains your muscles and your brain to know how to protect you if you do lose your balance.”

On Valentine's Day, we rise up in conjunction with 1 Billion Rising and Groundswell in music, poetry, dance and action to declare that #RevolutionaryLove is the call of our times.

We declare love for our opponents.

We declare love for ourselves. We will protect our capacity for joy. We will nurture our bodies and spirits; we will rise and dance. We will honor our mothers and ancestors whose bodies, breath, and blood call us to a life of courage. In their names, we choose to see this darkness not as the darkness of the tomb – but of the womb. We will breathe and push through the pain of this era to birth a new future.

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

Join us for these brand new Nia classes for every body taught by physical therapist Rachael Resch.  Learn physical and energy anatomy tools for self-healing your body, heart, mind and spirit - your body's way.  

The class is especially people healing short and long-term conditions of body, mind, emotions or spirit – such as injury, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, post-op, cancer, arthritis, Parkinson’s, trauma, eating disorders, depression, pregnancy and postpartum.

Moving to heal means making choices moment by moment, your body's way, in order to feel better - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  You'll be guided to slow down and go smaller, so you can listen to the voice of your body: Sensation.  

All ages and all abilities are welcome.  Chairs are available for those who need them.  Caregivers welcome at no additional charge.  Please arrive 15 minutes early for your first class to register and settle in.

"After ony two classes I'm in so much less pain!"
