Notes About This Event

This interactive workshop will integrate the healing art and science of Nia and Naturopathic Medicine
In order to look and really feel radiant, you need to move your body each and every day. That might just be taking the stairs, or something more fun like Nia. Nia is a movement form blending various dance martial arts and healing arts, uplifting music and energy. It is empowering and creative, freeing and mood elevating in addition to being a great cardio work-out.
Nia helps detoxing as it balances not only the body but also the mind and spirit. It fully works the muscles, gets the lymphatic system moving and gives your skin a beautiful glow!.We are exposed to toxins every day so getting the body moving and sweating is a great way to detox.
After winter hibernation, cleansing is a natural process that rejuvenates our health. Supporting healthy detoxification can help improve energy, stimulate metabolism, balance hormones, support digestion, improve skin radiance and support emotional wellbeing. Welcome spring feeling healthy & rejuvenated!
In this 3-hour participatory workshop (including a one hour Nia class) you will be introduced to various tools to detox body, mind and spirit such as:


Nia • Understanding why detoxification is essential for health • Learning how to support cleansing on physical & emotional levels • Exploring the impact of environmental toxicity & how to reduce exposure • Discovering food, herbs and lifestyle tips to support healthy detoxification

About Nia

What is Nia?

Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts and healing arts. It empowers people of all shapes and sizes by connecting the body, mind, emotions and spirit. Classes are taken barefoot to soul-stirring music in more than 45 countries. Trainings are designed for those seeking personal enrichment and professional development. Every experience can be adapted to individual needs and abilities. Step into your own joyful journey with Nia, and positively shape the way you feel, look, think and live.

How does Nia work?

Nia draws from Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, jazz dance, modern dance, Duncan dance, yoga, Alexander Technique and Teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais. Every class offers a unique combination of 52 moves that correspond with the main areas of the body: the base, the core and the upper extremities. Stiff beginners and highly fit athletes alike can adapt Nia to meet their needs by choosing from three intensity levels. Consecutive trainings collectively explore 52 principles for personal enrichment and professional development. Read testimonials from people of all ages, backgrounds and locations.

Why was Nia created?

Nia’s purpose is to grow a worldwide community of healthy people who are empowered to do great things. We believe every person can discover, explore, unleash and enhance their individual potential to live a fulfilling and meaningful life – by engaging their senses and listening to their bodies. With the right tools and education, we can increase our confidence and happiness. We can become connected to others to shape a consciousness that extends beyond our own. Together we will unearth possibilities never before imagined.
