"Whole body fitness without injuries -- and nurture your creative instincts at the same time. It's like Zumba meets Pilates meets martial arts, rounded off with yoga. I've been doing this practice since 2010 and it just gets better and better as I age."
"The energy the music the freedom to move in your own way to your own beat....love Nia"
What is Nia?
Nia is a class, practice and lifestyle that blends movement, mindfulness, connection and joy to provide a whole-body / whole-being experience that activates, transforms and liberates body, mind and spirit.
Integrating ancient wisdom and modern science with elements of dance, martial arts and healing arts, Nia offers physical, mental and emotional conditioning, healing and transformation that is accessible and attainable for every body.
Who can do Nia?
Nia is for every body. Any body of any age, fitness level, size, shape and ability can practice Nia. Nia practitioners come from all walks of life but are united in their desire to feel better, move better and live better.
I have two left feet… can I still do Nia?
This is the most common question we receive. Other variations include “I’m not a dancer…”, “I’m not coordinated…” or “I have no rhythm… is Nia for me?”
The answer to all of these questions is 100% YES.
While Nia does incorporate elements of dance - it’s not like any dance you’ve experienced before. It’s not about getting the steps “right” or moving just like your teacher or other students. It’s about moving in YOUR body’s way - guided and encouraged by a teacher who honors that each and every body is unique.
You’ll learn simple steps that are repeated to create easy-to-follow patterns to activate and engage your brain while also conditioning your body.
While it’s normal to feel a little awkward whenever you’re beginning something new, most students report feeling more confident and comfortable within a few classes.
