How is NIA different from other exercise?

Experience fitness The Body’s Way – a new way of being and living in your body! Nia presents an entirely new philosophy of exercise: whole-body, expressive movement, rather than repetitive jogging or lifting. Nia’s barefoot, grounded approach maximizes body efficiency and empowers you to move with awareness, in a gentler, yet invigorating way. Your instructor offers choices to adapt all the movements to suit all fitness levels.

Every Nia class uses movements and concepts from three movement forms: the expressiveness of the Dance Arts (Jazz, Modern and Duncan), the power and explosiveness of the Martial Arts (Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do and Aikido), and the functional movement techniques of three of the Healing Arts (Yoga, the Alexander Technique and Feldenkrais). The blend of these arts, elegantly supported by unique, varied musical styles and sounds, makes Nia Technique a holistic fitness program and path that stimulates the nervous system in a healthy way, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and fully alive.

Nia is simply a delightful way to connect to your body, your heart, and your spirit.
