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

Just as spring is the time of year for sprouting upwards, late summer begins the time of returning to our roots.  The Hebraic mystical tradition teaches that the human body is the Tree of Life - rooted in Heaven and Earth, flowering in Heaven and Earth.

Moving through Lammas toward Autumn Equinoxand Rosh Hashanah, we reaffirm the spiritual rootedness of the human body in the tabernacle of the Earth. 

Join us for 5 weeks of Nia classes, from Tisha B'Av to Rosh Hashana, exploring how each root, limb and trunk of the Tree of Life is nested within your holy body.  Each day we focus on a specific fruit of the Kabbalah Tree of Life.  Learn how to plant, grow, harvest and store the seeds of sovereignty, creativity, adornment, eternity, beauty, strength and lovingkindness - your body's way - to renew all worlds.

All faith paths and those of no specific faith path are welcome to this practice of deep ecumenism.
