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

Moving To Heal

Enjoy soft music and easy-to-follow choreography in a supportive atmosphere of safety and trust.

You will personalise the movement to fit your body’s way, while focusing on pleasure, resulting in improved overall feelings of wellness, regardless of current physical/medical condition.

Elements of Nia 5 stages of healing will be integrated into this class to stimulate your sensory IQ and awaken body awareness .

The Nia 5 stages is an integrative movement practice based on the five stages of human development:

Embryonic, Creeping, Crawling, Standing and Walking.

It is a deceptively simple and powerful practice for optimal alignment, improved function and comfort in the body. 

No previous experiece needed.

Notes About This Class

Beginning 22/7/15 I will be offering a half hour class in the Nia 5 Stages at the Tugun Progress Hall before regular Nia.

Time: 8.30 – 9.00am, followed by Nia 9.00 – 10.00am.

Come along to enhance your somatic awareness and sensation of Pleasure of living in your body!

The Nia 5 Stages is an integrative practice based on the five stages of human development: Embryonic, Creeping, Crawling, Standing, and Walking. Each stage is a foundation for the next. Combined, all five stages help people to integrate physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. When practiced daily, these stages facilitate optimal alignment and function. Practicing the Nia 5 Stages allows your body to naturally reclaim the physical Mobility, Flexibility, Strength, Agility and Stability it needs. The continual practice of the Nia 5 Stages provides a way for the body to do what it does best, take care of itself and to self-heal. When allowed to, the body will always move towards healing, seeking how to function optimally.

It has been found that benefits can be experienced in as little as five minutes a day and that, no matter how many times practiced, profound changes occurred.

Notes About This Event

Join international Nia Black Belt teacher and trainer Ann Christiansen for a powerful Playshop titled LIFE.

The cycles of LIFE and the LIFE FORCE within our bodies are touched by dance. As we let go of thinking and striving we tap into our natural state. We allow the movements to BIRTH themselves and have a LIFE of their own.
We ask how can I sense more LIFE in my movements by connecting to the music, breath and all of the Realms - Body, Mind, Emotions and Spirit? The chemistry that the human body releases when connecting to music and dance is Healing, Unity, Connection and JOY. 

Join us to Enliven your Life force in your body!
