Philosophy

Through Movement We Find Health

Nia is based on the simple idea that movement is the medicine of life.  Moving makes the body feel better. By learning how to listen to the body, to sensation, Nia practice teaches you to access your body’s wisdom.  The body itself reveals that the way to long-term health and fitness is by choosing pleasure. Nia movements emphasize feeling good in your body.
