What is Nia?

Drawing from the wisdom of dance, martial arts and mindfulness, Nia tones your body while transforming your mind. 

More than a workout, Nia is a holistic fitness lifestyle practice addressing each aspect of your life - body, mind and soul. 

We believe every person can discover, explore, unleash, and enhance their individual potential to live a healthy and meaningful life by engaging their senses and listening to their bodies. 

Nia is based on the intelligent design of the body. Each workout brings mindfulness to your dance movement experience leaving you energized, mentally clear, and emotionally balanced.

Nia cardio-dance workouts combine 52 simple moves with dance arts, martial arts, and healing arts to get you fit in 60 minutes - body, mind, emotion, and spirit. Nia is very low impact, practiced barefoot, and adaptable to individual needs and abilities.
