Nia is a dance class that combines fitness and wellness into a unique movement practice.
It blends the fun and spontaneity of the dance arts, the fluid, organic movement patterns of the gentler martial arts like Tai Chi and Aikido, as well as the precision and power of Tae Kwon Do. The technique integrates the expansiveness of Yoga, and the mindfulness of functional movement therapies such as the Alexander Technique. Systematic principles, and each person’s connection to sensation, guide the technique of Nia.
Every class is suitable for beginners as well as seasoned Nia dancers, as your goal is to connect with your body’s own way, and getting the moves “right” is not important.
