What is Nia® Technique?
Nia: Now I Am (or Neuromuscular Integrative Action)
A dynamic blend of dance arts, martial arts and healing arts. Balancing technical precision with free-form expression, Nia brings the body, mind, emotions and spirit to optimum health through music, movement and self-expression, guided by the sensation of Pleasure.
Nia is designed for every body. It is ageless and limitless,transformational and effective for every person everywhere. Through Nia practice, you learn to foster awareness of your life through physical sensation, allowing the Voice of The Body to direct your actions and choices. Practiced barefoot to music, each person is invited to move at his or her own level of intensity, adapting the 52 Moves to their body potential at any given moment. While delivering cardiovascular, whole-body conditioning, Nia® creates a loving relationship with one's own body by tuning into The Body’s Way: the innate intelligence of the body.
And most of all, Nia® is exhilarating and fun! It’s about dancing through life and the joy of movement!
