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

Nia 5 Stages (5 Stadien) ist ein integratives Bewegungsprogramm, basierend auf den 5 Stadien der menschlichen Entwicklung. Embryonisch, Kriechen, Krabbeln, Stehen, Gehen. Jedes Stadium legt die Basis für das nächste. In der Kombination unterstützen die 5 Stages die physische, mentale, emotionale und spirituelle Integration. Der Körper erlangt Mobilität, Stabilität, Kraft, Agililtät und Flexibilität auf natürliche Weise. Regelmässig praktiziert wird die Körperwahrnehmung gesteigert und die Selbstheilung angeregt. Der Körper wählt in seinen Bewegungen von alleine den Weg der Heilung.

Notes About This Event

The Nia White Belt Training is the first level of a five-belt training series that presents a body-centered approach to health, wellness and fitness. If you have a desire to share Nia in a professional capacity, the White Belt Training is your entryway into teaching. Those who choose to pursue the path of personal enrichment use this training as a starting point for becoming a master student.

Nia vereinigt Fitness und Wellness zu einem systemisch-integrativen Fusion-Fitness Konzept für höchste Ansprüche. Östliche und westliche Bewegungsformen, Konzepte und Theorien wurden zu einem holistischen Bewegungsprogramm verbunden, das sich an den ganzen Menschen richtet – und nicht allein an bestimmte Muskelpartien. Nia enthält die Anmut und Spontaneität des Tanzes, die fliessenden, organischen Bewegungsabläufe der „weichen“ Kampfsportarten ebenso wie die Präzision und die konzentrierte Kraft des Tae Kwon Do. Nia enthält die bewusste Ausdehnung und Balance des Yoga und die heilende Präsenz der integrativen Körpertherapien.

Bei der Entwicklung von Nia wurden nicht einfach Techniken entliehen und gemixt wie in vielen anderen Fusion-Fitness-Konzepten. Stattdessen wurden Bewegungsformen auf ihre Essenz und ihre Effekte hin erforscht und daraus Prinzipien abgeleitet. Die Prinzipien von Nia leiten die Technik. Und nicht umgekehrt.

Die ganz persönliche und besondere Weiterbildung für Sie.
Der Nia White Belt vermittelt Weisheit und Wissen über Sie, ihren Körper, ihre Bewegungen. Schenkt Ihnen persönliches und berufliches Wachstum.
Diese Woche unterstützt ein gestärktes Selbstbewusstsein und zeigt Ihnen, wie Sie sich selbst verwirklichen können

Wo: GymAllegro, Bildstrasse 5, 9015 St. Gallen

Kosten: US$ 1599 + MWST

Notes About This Event

Nia White Belt Training takes you on a journey of self-discovery by exploring the art of sensation. Beginning with the Joy of Movement, you learn 13 principles for body-centered awareness. Each principle teaches you a variety of somatic skills for connecting to physical sensation in your body. Through the science, craft and art of sensation, you will learn Nia's body-centered approach to health, wellness and fitness. Crafting with sensation is the starting point for all Nia teachers. The Art of Sensation is what brings magic to the Nia class experience. 

Nia White Belt teaches you the Art of Sensation through five core areas of study.

Movement - the study of moving, health + potential
Anatomy - the study of body parts + systems 
Science - the study of body awareness, health + vitality
Music - the study of sound, health + expression
Philosophy, the study of the body's inherent wisdom.

Notes About This Event

Blue Belt, the second level of Nia education, explores how to create healthy relationships through body-centered communication. This intensive introduces the next set of 13 Nia principles, which focus on the 4 realms of body, mind, emotions and spirit. While the White Belt curriculum focuses entirely on awareness of physical sensation, Blue Belt applies these skills to explore internal sensations as perceived through – but distinct from – physical sensations in the body.

Blue Belt Principle #1: The Joy of Being in Relationship, integrates the sensation of Joy with the awareness that Joy is something outside the self, which we can invite into our physical experience. As a result, we begin to deepen our ability to listen with clarity and sustain awareness of details outside our body.
