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 Event

A women's 12 week experiential journey of inner discovery through body, heart and soul. Includes a 6 day retreat experience at the beautiful, earthy dance studio Rhythmwood on the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario, Canada. July 8 - 13, 2017. 

Through Conscious Dance, Embodiment Practices, Expressive Arts, Personal Inquiry, Meditation, Full Moon Ceremony, Communing with Nature and Sitting in a Circle of Sacred Sisterhood, we travel this path together.

This program runs over 12 weeks and includes self study (in your own time) along with bi-weekly group online meetup. The highlight is a 6 day onsite retreat at Rhythmwood. The format of the program makes it accessible to people near and far as there is only one trip to Rhythmwood required, July 8th to 13th. Here we take a deep dive into the heart of the journey!

Complete details for the program can be found here: http://rhythmwood.ca/index.php/conscious-dance/soul-journey

One scholarship position available.
