Since its inception
in 1983, Nia has continued to revolutionize the wellness industry with
its emphasis on joy as the pathway to finding health and well-being. More
than a fitness program, Nia provides conditioning, healing and transformation.
Nia is fun.
Practiced barefoot to music, Nia integrates nine movement forms to provide
freedom, variety and most of all enjoyment.
Nia draws on the wisdom of:
Martial Arts: T’ai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido
Dance Arts: Jazz Dance, Modern Dance, Duncan Dance
Healing Arts: Yoga, Alexander Technique, The Teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais
Nia addresses your whole being, not just your body.
Nia activates the realms of the body, mind, emotion and spirit. We unite
movement with introspection, imagery, expressiveness, and sound to heal
the mind, emotions and spirit. Nia students experience a deep sense of satisfaction
that keeps them returning for more.
foundation is awareness.
By tuning into the sensations of the body, Nia teaches you to stop moving
in habitual ways and start moving with purpose. By tuning into the structure

relationship with your body.
Nia is adaptable
and safe for any fitness level.
Every movement can be done within three planes – low, middle and
high – and three different levels of intensity. By encouraging students
to self-guide and tweak the movement, Nia provides cardiovascular, whole-body
conditioning for every body. No matter what your current fitness level,
Nia celebrates the current design and function of your body. At the same
time, Nia will gradually move you toward the pinnacle of proper physical
Nia isn’t an acronym anymore. It‘s simply a name meaning “with
purpose”. Previously, NIA (all capitals) meant non-impact aerobics
(1983) and in 1987, neuromuscular integrative action. Though they're not
used anymore, those definitions give this movement more meaning, particularly
the latter definition.
- going straight from the nerves to the muscles, bypassing the “thinking”
brain. Movement is copied and absorbed into the body and not through mental
Integrative - systemic,
whole-body movement integrating music, movement and sensation.
Action - the power of now,
continual movement in the moment.
