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.

Cost

By donation, suggested minimum $15 for both Qigong and Nia classes, or $10 for either class.

Notes About This Class

Join us beginning Sunday, June 12th for some Nia outdoors!

This class is immediately preceded by an optional 30 minutes of very gentle Qigong practice at 10:00am to build your life force energy before class!  for more info about Qigong, visit http://denverholisticfitness.webs.com/qigong

We like the location on the NE corner of Washington Park, just west of the Fire Dept. building and Lily pond under the trees next to the picnic tables.  If you can, bring a rake and come a few minutes early to help me prepare the grass!

I suggest wearing shoes if you are concerned about your feet getting dirty.  While this is a beautiful stretch of green grass, there might be twigs, small rocks, insects, bird droppings, etc.  I've generally been okay in my bare feet, however.

If it is raining, we will not have class.  Feel free to text me at 303-718-3252 if you want to confirm.
