Nia Dance

This course has no current classes. Please join the waiting list.

Inspired by the martial arts, dance arts & healing arts, is a transformational movement & lifestyle practice anchored in body-centred awareness.

Offering holistic conditioning and a connection to pleasure, Nia classes are suitable for everybody; no experience necessary. Based on the intelligent design of the body, a classic Nia class is a barefoot, sensory-based, cardio movement class to music.
Some of the many benefits of Nia include cardiovascular health, alleviation of stress and anxiety, hormonal stability and an increase in wellbeing, leaving you feeling energised, alive, mentally clear and emotionally balanced. The practice draws on the chemistry of nine movement forms: Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, Jazz, Modern Dance, Yoga, the Alexander Technique and the work of Moshe Feldenkrais. This unique blend allows the body to move in fun and free ways that bring health and vitality to every part.

Requiremtns:

  • Participants must be able to stand and move for an hour. This program is taught in 3 intensity levels low, medium and high so people can choose their own level to suit their fitness.
