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.

This class is classic Nia.  You move your body's way.  Tweak when you sense discomfort or turn it up if you desire more.  All levels are welcome at this location in every class.  It's truly the place to BE.

Nia’s philosophy is “through movement we find health”.  Blending the mind set of NO pain ALL gain and that fitness should feel good throughout the body.  Nia is a life style practice that’s been around for 30+ years and practiced in 48 different countries.  It provides the strength of Pilates, flexibility of yoga, muscle tone of strength training and aerobic fitness- all through the revolutionary pleasure based fitness program that gets you in shape from the inside out. Derived from martial, dance, and healing arts it empowers people of all shapes and sizes to connect with their body, mind, emotions, and spirit.  Nia is described as “moving meditation”.  All levels are welcome.

Notes About This Class

Deriving from the same principles as Nia: Move & Rejuv this class will slow down the pace to a level 1...staying closer to the core of the body to provide a way for those who are healing from both old and new injuries, stepping into or back into a fitness program, or those wanting to better connect with organic movements of their body and create healthy neuro pathways (or cellular memory) on which to build proper body movements.  

This class can be done seated (chair or stability ball, you are welcome to bring your own) or standing.  Creating a safe, nurturing, and non-competitive  environment is vital for anyone who is healing or starting out in fitness.   There is no more having to stay at home or find a place to “fit in”.  Be Yoga has listened and done that for you. 

This class is open to everyone with the knowledge of it being slower and more mindful.
