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

The Practice

“This lyrical, dance-like technique is deceptively effective at delivering a high-powered workout that will leave you strong and centered.”    -Health Magazine

Great for people who don’t like to exercise! More than “working out” Nia:

  1. improves strength & flexibility + increases energy & endurance
  2. affects posture, poise & alignment focused on balance & coordination
  3. provides emotional release & reduces stress andis playfully creative while conditioning
  4. creates community offering adaptable movement for all fitness levels

Notes About This Class

Gentle NIA

For those who want to ease into a movement practice and/or are dancing with physical limitations so that we need to take extra special care.  We take it slow and simplify or modify moves to suit our bodies today.  With practice, we learn to listen to our bodies and make changes independently.

“An emotional fitness odyssey, Nia is just plain exhilarating.” 
—The New York Times

Learn the fundamentals, basic moves, and core principles of Nia Technique. Start moving with confidence right away. Experience the secret to fitness!

Nia movement classes combine dance technique with martial arts movements and mindfulness practices from the healing arts. Nia is the first cardio dance workout to bring mindfulness to group exercise. The unique fusion style of this barefoot practice has fundamentally changed lives through its evolutionary approach to fitness and self-healing for nearly 35 years.

Based on the simple idea that movement is the medicine of life, Nia is a fun creative pathway to health. Its adaptable to all ages and physical ability.

If you’ve been curious about Nia or if you've wanted to experience Nia, but have been self-conscious about joining an on-going class, this series is for you.
