What is Nia?

Nia is a non-impact, expressive movement programme designed to achieve whole body fitness and cardiovascular conditioning. Drawing on the movement and philosophies of dance arts (Jazz, Modern and Duncan dance), martial arts (Tai Chi, Aikido and Taekwondo) and healing arts (Yoga, the Alexander Technique and the work of Moshe Feldenkrais) Nia promotes the development of a deeper understanding of and appreciation for the body.

Within the hour-long class, you’ll experience many styles of music to engage the brain developing physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual connections to your body as well as experiencing a sense of community with fellow dancers.

Most importantly, you’ll have a lot of fun! All levels of fitness welcome, no experience necessary. Nia is danced barefoot in comfortable clothing so come as you are.

Classic Nia: the focus is on cardiovascular movement designed to elevate the heart rate.

Moving to Heal Nia: The routines are designed to allow the participant to focus on their own personal healing journey; they are simpler, gentler and even more focused on moving in The Body's Way and Your Body's Way. We are still conditioning our bones, muscles, nerve endings and senses; still developing our flexibility, agility, mobility, strength and stability; still seeking the magic that comes from the confluence of music and movement.
