NIA — Through Movement We Find Health
You’ve heard us talking about NIA — but if you’ve never attended a NIA class, you’re probably wondering what NIA is…
Are you curiously fascinated about NIA?
NIA incorporates the expressiveness of dance, the power and precision of martial arts and the wisdom of healing arts. NIA is an alternative to aerobic exercise and strength training. This fun movement class can be thought of as fitness meets dance meets yoga meets improv meets martial arts. The goal is safe, no impact, body-mind based movement. NIA empowers you to make your own movement choices by offering a flexible structure you can personally modify to suit your body’s needs.
NIA is done barefoot to diverse, upbeat and inspiring music. NIA is a transformational movement practice that teaches you to be more JOYFUL, EXPRESSIVE, and ALIVE in your body, both inside and outside of the studio! NIA is holistic. It engages your body, mind, emotions and spirit. NIA draws from dance arts, martial arts and healing arts to create purposeful movement that will help you grow and learn.
There are endless possibilities of the human body to heal itself through movement. The path to health is endless; all that is required is time, practice, and love. Let’s dance through life with joy and pleasure!”
