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.

Notes About This Event

The age old practice of Yoga is built on universal and ethical principles, personal discipline, postures, breathing techniques, concentration of the mind, and meditation. It is a science and a system for re-establishing and maintaining health. Practice becomes a way of life, training and transforming its practitioners.  Through muscular contraction and expansion blossoms integrated balance and a greater ability to remain peaceful amidst the storm. Yoga invigorates the spirit. 

When applied to Nia’s Finding Health Through Movement practice, Yoga enables the Nia practitioner to have a deeper understanding about relationships between bones, energy expenditure, posture as it relates to wellness and how the mind exists within the body. Similarly, Nia enables the Yoga practitioner to truly feel into the soul and move with the spirit in organic expression. The two together create a divine pairing to awaken and ignite the soul.

This workshop will delve deeply into both worlds and create a bridge to facilitate each practice.  Yoga + Nia enhance living. NiaNow.com
