Bring forth your inner Dancer, Warrior, and Healer. Experience the Joy of Movement through this sensory-based technique combining dance, martial, and healing arts.
Nia, an internationally acclaimed practice for more than 25 years, offers a fun, creative pathway to health and wellbeing regardless of age or physical condition. With the philosophy “Through Movement We Find Health,” this practice empowers people to cultivate health, fitness, and well-being by choosing Pleasure over pain. Mastery is achieved by listening to the Voice of the Body, Sensation, and by utilizing the gift of sensory intelligence as the way to live and be in the body.
Choreographed, hour-long, low-impact classes are done barefoot to music using a unique combination of 52 moves that deliver cardiovascular, whole-body conditioning and correspond to the main areas of the body: the base, core, and upper extremities. Personal expression is encouraged.
The traditional movement forms integrated into Nia are:
•Martial Arts: T’ai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido
•Dance Arts: Jazz Dance, Modern Dance, Duncan Dance
•Healing Arts: Yoga, Alexander Technique, The Teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais®
Through Nia practice, you learn to foster awareness of your life through physical sensation, allowing the Voice of The Body to direct your actions and choices, leading to a general state of what Nia calls Dynamic Ease. Step into your own joyful journey with Nia, and positively shape the way you feel, look, think, and live.
