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

WHY the 52 Moves?

In Nia the basic moves are used to make up the choreography for all of the routines used during our weekly hour long classes. The entire body-of-work is based on these moves, so once these moves are learned and embodied, dancing any routine is like coming home.

There are endless combinations and possibilities. Drawing from the Martial Arts, Dance Arts, and Healing Arts, these moves make a great combination of organic precision, emotional expression, and functional movement.

Among other valuable reasons, the moves are designed to make movement easier to do, easier to language, and easier to personalize. In any routine, you learn the moves, then move the moves and then energize the moves. This process deepens your practice

The ’52 Moves’ condition the whole body from tip to toes. Chosen for their specific healing properties and fitness properties, the ’52 Moves’ are movement medicine for EveryBody.

This Playshop promises to provide the language of Nia, an understanding of the art and science of each of the 52 moves in a space for you to deepen your practice with the Nia Technique. Jasmine Lok (Second Degree Black Belt) and Rebekah Hartiman (First Degree Black Belt) look forward to diving deep into the 52 moves with YOU! 

Everyone is invited!!! Free Childcare is available
