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

A beautiful weekend "out of time" in the gorgeous Taos Valley of northern New Mexico. The retreat center Vista Verde has a beautiful dance space, amazing views of the stars and a quick trip to visit the earthship community and Taos in all it's northern New Mexican artsy glory. 

RETREATING INTO NATURAL TIME

In Nia the concept of natural time is meant to give us the opportunity to be in the present moment and to discover our own way of learning, moving and being in the world. Natural time is a powerful principle that teaches us to move at our own pace, to our own depths and in response to our individual impulses. We stay connected to natural time by remaining connected to sensation; and, that is precisely what this weekend retreat invites you to do; move at your own pace for the weekend choosing what feels right for your body.

The following are included in the cost of the retreat (lodging is separate):

  • Four 90-minute Nia Technique classes (no Nia experience required!), including information covering specific Nia Technique principles

ABOUT VISTA VERDE

Vista Verde Vista Verde Retreat sits on 37 acres of land on the west edge of the Taos Gorge surrounded by juniper and piñon trees. There is a beautiful sprung wood dance floor for our Nia classes and lots of space to be outdoors, with two hiking trails looping through the natural surroundings, a ceremonial sand circle, an outdoor fire pit and a labyrinth. With no television or cell service you can’t help but disconnect and plug into natural time (though, if absolutely necessary a landline and WiFi are available).

This event will be registered through a third party service. A new page will open to sign in or register.
