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

Integrating Pilates is a class based on the fundamentals inherent of the work of Joseph H. Pilates, the Ron Fletcher Work™, and Nia. Activating the shoulder and pelvic girdles with spine movement, strength and flexibility are blended into core stabilization and mobility. Whole body health, whole body commitment and Breath develop balance in standing and centering; body and mind are integrated into isolated, controlled and expressive movement through awareness and mindfulness.

Notes About This Class

Nia is a group movement class that fuses movement from the martial arts, dance arts and healing arts to deliver the promise of integrating mind/body/spirit through sensation. Nia is a multi-dimensional practice of The Body’s Way intended to enhance conditioning of the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual realms of our bodies and to encourage individual and community expressivity through body awareness. All levels are welcome.
