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.

A note from Stephaney: Nia Trainer
I love training Green Belt. It is 5 days of coming together with others, knowing what you know, and filling in the gaps! A joyous celebration, a joyous reunion of body mind and spirit. Deepen your 52 moves, your 5 sensations, your connection to the listen and dance. Come Alive in your relationship to teaching and to Nia!! We will spend one day focused on Music, the next day on Movement and then we will blend the two to create the magic and the Nia Promise of a mind body spirit workout that offers conditioning and self healing! Whether you are a new white belt or a seasoned Black belt, The Green Belt is the belt not to be missed. There is something here for you that will allow you to fully step in to the teacher you know yourself to be..
