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

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.

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

Notes About This Event

Join Nia Faculty Trainer Laurie Bass in a movement exploration of yin and yang energy. Yin is the feminine, soft, watery, melodic, relaxing and receptive. Yang is the masculine, the form, rhythmic, the fire, assertive and outward directed energy. The body is designed to be in balance with these two energies.  We will move, breath, and explore the yin and yang in the body, in music and Nia movement to arrive at a sense of relaxed power, mindful presence, peace and harmony.
