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 2 Heal Nia classes support people dealing with a wide range of issues from addiction recovery, injury, trauma, grief, and short-term to long-term illness. Moving 2 Heal Nia is exercise and you are invited to join either sitting or standing. If your doctor has advised you that you can/should exercise then join me to seek the sensation of “Feeling better!”

Moving 2 Heal Nia program supports people to listen to the voices of the body – sensation. Sensation is a tool for self-healing. Sessions begin with a body awareness walk (or seated as needed) and ends with body gratitude. Jeanne will guide you through a mindful movement experience using Nia’s 7 class cycles, great music and 52 moves. Moving 2 Heal Nia experience is defined simply by “I feel better.” Students are provided opportuities to personalize movement to adapt to their health needs. This is not classic Nia, it is Gentler and experiential.

The new class begins Wednesday November 4, 2015. It will be held on Mon and Wed from 12:30pm-1:30 Join Jeanne as we become sensation scientists discovering our body's "feel better" .
