Classic Nia is a fun, barefoot, cardio movement class to music. Classic Nia incorporates simple movement patterns, drawn from the dance, martial and healing arts, and is designed to tone your body and calm your mind. You will step out of a Classic Nia class feeling energised, mentally clear and emotionally balanced.
Every class is adaptable to your individual needs and ability, as you’re empowered to explore a variety of intensity levels and modify movements to safely condition and nurture your body.
Gentle Nia uses the same music and moves as Classic Nia but with less physical intensity. Gentle Nia is taught at a level I, the most intrinsic, close to the body movements, with an emphasis on awareness, breath, balance, and self healing. Gentle Nia is great for those who prefer a softer, slower-paced movement practice.
Classes are designed for every BODY, including individuals dealing with stress, injury, illness, or movement challenges. This class can be done standing or sitting and is suitable for beginners.
Nia FloorPlay is an expressive movement class that uses the elements of play, gravity, the body and the floor to achieve self-healing and holistic fitness. In FloorPlay, a way of moving and exploring is reawakened, that many of us have lost since we began walking as a child.
Throughout a class, you are guided to play with endless movement variations on the floor as well as moving from a high plane (standing) to a low plane (on the floor). The use of the body as a free weight stimulates and conditions the body, allowing you to stretch, mobilise, strengthen, balance, relax and release.
Kneepads or mats can be used to help the body move with greater freedom and relaxation.
