“Through Movement We Find Health.”

Nia simultaneously addresses the body, mind, emotions, and spirit, and puts them on the “same page.” Nia uses physical activity to integrate one’s neurology (including the mind, emotions, and spirit), with one’s outer body, or musculature. To achieve this whole-being integration, Nia addresses the whole person, using a comprehensive, holistic exercise approach designed with a combination of nine classic movement forms.

Nia Blends Nine Movement Forms

Martial Arts Dance Arts Healing Arts
T’ai Chi Jazz Dance The Teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais
Tae Kwon Do Modern Dance Alexander Technique
Aikido Duncan Dance Yoga

Nia is done barefoot to music and delivers cardiovascular and whole-body conditioning. Because Nia is self-guided and based on creating a loving relationship with the body and following The Body’s Way – the innate intelligence of the body — it is adaptable and safe for any fitness level, from stiff beginners to highly fit athletes.

At Shine, we believe in the power of self-discovery through movement. In practicing Nia, you fall in love with being and moving in your body and you experience the power of self-healing. Let your inner light shine with the Joy of Movement!
