Welcome to Nia, an expressive body-mind-spirit movement program that offers an artistic and innovative approach to fitness and healing. By blending the stillness and concentration of Tai Chi, the mindfulness and dynamic poses of Yoga, the explosive power of Tae Kwon Do, and the grace and spontaneity of Modern and Ethnic Dance, Nia creates 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.

This 1.5 hour workhop is designed for those who are new and even not-so-new to Nia. The first 1/2 hr is a no-music practice. We will explore the FUNdamentals of Nia and some of Nia's 52 Moves, designed to experience the five sensations (flexibility, agility, mobility, strength and stability). The second hour is about music and the Joy of movement; we will dance a full Nia class using The Body's Way with pleasure! This workshop is designed for EVERY BODY, regardless of fitness and age levels - as long as you can move, you can dance!
