For those new to Nia, we invite you to join us for a lively, fun and uplifting class where you will sweat, laugh, connect with new friends, and truly enjoy yourself. Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts and healing arts. It empowers people of all ages, shapes and sizes by connecting the body, mind, emotions and spirit. In Nia, you will dance barefoot to soul-stirring music in order to positively shape the way you feel, look, think and live.
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.
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.
No matter if this is your first class or you’re a Nia guru, we invite you to come join us and rediscover your playful self!
