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.

Notes About This Class

Monday Nia classes resume on June 2nd 2014.

Bring a friend and increase your JOY of movement. Bring water bottle and wear comfy clothing!!

Testimonitals:

"Bonnie taught one of the very first Nia classes I ever attended. Having only attended 3 classes before that, I was a Nia new-bie. I was unfamiliar to the Nia Technique, 52 moves, or principles at that point.  I just knew that I liked being able to dance again after having been away from dance for 10 years. I felt awkward as a new dance student again, but then I remember feeling safe and welcome in Bonnie's class and free to express myself, even if I wasn't familiar with Nia. Bonnie's unique teaching style was fun and interactive, while also warm and supportive of a new student who needed to know that movement through dance could be fun, safe and reflective all at the same time! Bonnie's classes allow students of all abilities the supportive space they need to discover the joy of dancing their own bodies, spirits, and emotions!" M. D. 

"I took Bonnie's Nia class as a new Nia instructor. She took me under here Nia wing and taught me confidence,fun,play and ease while getting an awesome work out! It was such a relaxed atmosphere, not only to be in as a dancer but as a beginner instructor as well. Thank you Bonnie!"
Kathee Flamini, Nia dance instructor,Reiki Master/Teacher

"Bonnie's Nia class is fun AND physically good for me. As a person with chronic headaches who avoids exercise, I am always so glad when Mondays come, when I can enjoy music and movement that energizes my body AND emotions...I always come away feeling like I used to after a great 9th grade dance party, goose bumps and all." Cindy Smith, Licensed Massage Therapist, Co-Owner, WildHeart Studios
