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

Learn to embody the newest Nia Technique routine by Kelle Rae Oien, "Sacred."

The focus of Sacred is the Bones. The intent is to drop in under our skin to experience our 206 bones in order to relax and create sustainability. The sacral and cranial bones will be our featured guideposts, as they are the endpoints of our spine. The only voluntarily movable bone in the cranium is the jawbone. For this reason, emphasis is given to relax and drop the jawbone to effectively encourage mobility up and down the spine and into the sacrum.

Sacred is an energzing, fun and powerful routine. Join Kelle for 5.5 hours of learning to embody the work, while getting background 'creation information' from the choreographer herself. Kelle will also share tips that will help you learn this particular routine, while creating a playful environment to cellulary imprint this body of work in your cells.

The workshop is followed by The Class Experience of Sacred and is included in your workshop!
