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


Step in to your day with this uplifting movement class taught by Black Belt Instructors Ann Nicolaysen and Melanie McFarland, combining soul-stirring music with dance, martial arts and yoga-type floorplay. Every Nia class is set to songs from a wide-variety of genres with an emphasis on beats that elevate your spirit and your heart rate, all set to easy-to-embrace choreography.


Morning Nia is terrific for anyone who loves to move, especially people with sedentary office jobs -- but it's also fantastic for those of us who are physically active during our work lives.  Improve balance, cardio function, reaction time, and coordination and while having a great time and increasing your sense of expressiveness.  


By the end of each class you'll feel exhilarated instead of exhausted,  improve/balance your mood, find your voice and do it all as part of a welcoming, inspiring community. Have a better day!

Notes About This Class

You may not currently hold the attitude and belief that the human body can heal itself, but it can.  By self-healing, we mean doing something to feel better -- not necessarily resulting in a cure, although a cure can happen.  If you doubt you can self-heal you’re not alone.  No matter how many times you may have attempted, and feel you have failed at healing, this moment is different...

You're ready for a change.

A Moving to Heal class is set apart from other exercise programs by its purpose: turning movement into a therapeutic experience.  We use movement as medicine to support people in recovery, dealing with short-term injury or grief, or struggling with long-term trauma or illness.  Participants are taught to take charge and participate in their healing by increasing body awareness.  You will use sensation to track comfort and discomfort, and to choose pleasure to guide self-healing.  Where most classes stop at the door on the way out, Moving to Heal classes provide the tools to make movement, meditation, and positive perceptions part of everyday living, adding greater meaning and pleasure to your life.

This class is suitable for all levels, including those who wish to dance while seated, or require other special accomodations.  Contact Jeanna directly with any concerns or questions before your first class.

Notes About This Event

Moving To Heal is excited to host Nia Teacher and Trainer Helen Terry from Texas and the owner of Soma Ranch – Nia Retreat Center for a master Nia class. This is a great opportunity for students and teachers alike! 

About Helen

Helen Terry is one of the best teachers, mothers, and trainers, and because of her mastery in Nia and in her ability to build and create a successful personal and professional life she was one of the first two trainers chosen to step into the role of Blue Belt trainer!” Debbie Rosas

“I consider myself an inspirer as much as an educator. I was born to make an inspirational difference in people’s lives through movement to music and how I live my life. When I teach Nia, I adore watching how folks light up! It’s phenomenal how many people’s lives are being changed through this practice. I consider it a blessing to have found Nia and a privilege to teach and share this wonderful technique” Helen Terry

This event will be registered through a third party service. A new page will open to sign in or register.
