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

Nia is fitness fusion of dance, martial arts & healing -- a low-impact, high-energy class taken barefoot to soul-stirring music.

I invite you to join us for a class. My style as a Nia dancer is energetic and open. As a Nia teacher, I teach you to tailor the experience to be just right for you. It's YOUR body and you choose your level of intensity!

Move beyond traditional aerobics to work out (not wear out) your body, mind, emotion and spirit!

Step into your own journey with Nia, and positively shape the way you feel, look, think and live.

Notes About This Class

Hi Nia Dancers!
GET READY TO MOVE!

I am back and ready for a new year of Nia at the Monroe Street Movement Center. The Nia teachers in Israel set my Nia practice on fire! I am so inspired and know you will be, too. 


Classes will begin on September 22, 2014, after I return from my Black Belt Training. I am so excited to share new music (a mix of songs you know and songs you don't), fun easy-to-follow moves and a year-long course of kickin' classes.

Our focus this year will "Highlights of Nia's 13 White Belt Principles" with the intention of bringing fitness and wellbeing to every body. 

All bodies are welcome!
