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

This is a class that will surprise many and challenge the young at heart. Come ready to move in joy and with enthusiasm. I find this 'seniors' class to be a real blessing as many are there to expand their already busy wellness activities with movements that enhance their flexibility,stamina, strength, agility, mobility and flexibily.

We dance, we laugh, we move with joy and with mindful attention to the focus and to our own experience.  Please share our enthusiasm as we explore the many Nia routines, the movement forms, the joy of learning thru dance, thru the body, and thru the magic of being in the moment with the Nia experience. Levels vary amoung students from 1 to 3 - each student listens and honors the body, inviting the Body's Way to guide the dance.

Be ready to flow to fun music, work, stretch and tone all body parts, but mostly be ready to enjoy a great sharing with friends.
