Blending aspects of Martial Arts, Dance Arts, and Healing Arts, Nia provides a variety of movement dynamics to create an experience that involves your whole body, as well as your spirit. The stillness and concentration of Tai Chi, the dynamic poses of Yoga, the explosive power of Tae Kwon Do, and the grace and spontaneity of Modern and Ethnic dance make it possible to create a whole new sense of well-being! The use of eclectic, rich music, guided imagery, powerful kinesthetic cues, and heart-felt joy add to the full experience of a Nia class. Beyond the fun of Nia, there is a more profound experience that comes from learning about, and moving in accord with, The Body’s Way. Nia is typically done barefoot. However, students can also wear dance shoes if their body prefers the support. Nia is done wearing comfortable, breathable clothing that’s as dressed-up or dressed-down as you like.
