Nia Dance

Enjoy relaxing and rejuvenating classes with our expert faculty


Class Description

Nia is an innovative, transformational exercise that expands and deepens the experience of fitness. Through movement, music, and FUN! Nia classes guide you to move your body the way it is intended to move. Based in the dance arts, martial arts and healing arts, Nia offers a total, invigorating mind-body workout that emphasizes joy, pleasure and ease. Nia classes vary in their focus, but always provide new tools for you to further develop your relationship with your body, including:

- Ways to strengthen muscles and gain flexibility without inducing injury - Newfound awareness of the essential relationship between the feet and the rest of the body, in stillness and in movement 

- Guidance in releasing tension through the neck and shoulders, even while engaging in dynamic, fast- paced upper-body movement - Cognitive awakening through working with neuromuscular patterns that stimulate and attune your body, mind and spirit

- Support for your individual creativity in all realms of self-expression

Everyone is welcome to any Nia class. No prior training is necessary. Come and join us!
