A unique introduction to Nia Technique!
Learn the language of Nia with a two-part experiential 52 Moves workshop.
This is an excellent workshop for both new to Nia students as well as seasoned students. Learning the foundation of Nia’s 52 moves will give you an opportunity to polish your technique, to expand your Nia vocabulary, and to better understand the conditioning qualities of each move so you learn how to take your workout to a new level!
Nia’s 52 Moves are the building blocks of all Nia routines, classes and Nia programs. They originate from diverse modalities spanning Dance Arts, Martial Arts and Healing Arts. They are designed to bring conditioning to every muscle group, joint, the nervous system, and the three main areas of the body: base, core and upper extremities.
PART ONE EDUCATION: 1:30-2:30pm
• We will spend time breaking down each move by following Nia’s somatic methodology for studying movement. A triad known as: Learn-Move-Energize.
PART TWO EMBODY: 2:30-3:30pm
• Get ready to dance, sweat, and ROCK all Nia 52 moves to a unique musical landscape by none other than Led Zeppelin. This one-hour class will give you an opportunity to energize and personalize everything you learned (all 52 moves) while getting a total body workout.
Class is taken barefoot and no experience is necessary. Nia is designed for all ages, fitness levels and body types. For this workshop 16+ are welcomed (under 18 with parent consent). Come ready to move and wear anything that makes you feel free and comfortable. Please bring a water bottle, a towel, and a mat for floor exercises (optional).
