Your body, in cooperation with your mind and spirit, is marvelously blessed with miraculous and self-healing abilities.  The body is the temple of your life.  Mind and spirit are the dwellers within the temple. Mind and spirit maintain the temple.

Mind's intelligence and spirit's inspiration vitalize and quicken the body.  The three together - body, mind, and spirit - cooperate to produce the most profound medicine ever known in the history of the human race, right within you.

What is Nia?

Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that leads to health, wellness and fitness. It empowers people of all shapes and sizes by connecting the body, mind, emotions and spirit. Classes are taken barefoot to soul-stirring music in more than 45 countries. Trainings are designed for those seeking personal enrichment and professional development. Every movement can be adapted to individual needs and abilities. Step into your own joyful journey with Nia, and positively shape the way you feel, look, think and live.
The secret of fitness is in the joy of movement 

Stop exercising.  Start moving.  Use your body the way it was designed to be used.  The Nia Technique is a revolutionary way to get fit using movements from the Martial Arts, Dance Arts and Healing Arts.  Follow the pleasure principle: if it feels good, do it; if it doesn’t, stop. Cardiovascular, healing, Nia is a structured yet creative way to move your body like you’ve never moved it before!

Why Nia?

Nia is the most imaginative combination of fitness and fun – it is a path to condition, heal and express your self through movement and sensation.

A barefoot dance workout set to great music, Nia is an innovative and dynamic fitness program with a holistic approach to physical well-being.

Nia brings the body, mind, emotion and spirit to optimum health through music, movement and self-expression, guided by the sensation of Pleasure.
What is the Nia Experience?

The Nia experience is how we describe the sensation of taking a Nia class. Typically Nia classes include 55 minutes of movement to diverse music. Every Nia class has 7 Cycles beginning with a focus and intent. Every class offers a unique combination of 52 moves that correspond with the main areas of the body: base, core and upper extremities. Stiff beginners and highly fit athletes alike can adapt Nia to meet their needs by choosing from three intensity levels.

Nia creatively combines movements from the Martial Arts, Dance Arts, & Healing Arts, with an eclectic blend of music.  Nia delivers a holistic cardio workout that tones, strengthens, & delights the senses.

Nia is designed for any body. It is ageless and limitless, transformational and effective for every person everywhere, from athletes, dancers and fitness instructors, to children, special needs groups and the elderly.

With the philosophy, Through Movement We Find Health, Nia addresses the whole person through music and movement, integrating a body-mind-soul workout.
