    One of the perks of being a psychologist is that I learn ways to improve and maintain mental health.  As a teacher of Nia I know that it plays a big part in keeping me both mentally and physically well.

    To understand how participating in a Nia class creates mental wellness and happiness, let’s look to research from Positive Psychology.

    This tells us that there are three sources of happiness – pleasure, flow and meaning (Seligman, 2002)

    A healthy diet of happiness includes all three sources . In my experience, being a Nia participant taps all three (and even more so as a teacher of Nia).

    The first source of happiness is a PLEASANT LIFE – one where we engage in doing things that give us pleasure. We get a quick hit of happiness by doing things such as eating a favourite food, drinking a favourite drink, watching a movie, shopping, gaming and, of course, moving to music in a Nia class.  All these actions make us feel good at the time.  However, the happy feelings may not last for long.

    Science affirms what we intuitively know – that feeling connected is essential for our physical health and mental wellbeing. In this time of lockdowns, social isolation and physical distancing take time to tune in and ask yourself “what do I need?”  Allowing whatever you feel to be moved and expressed is medicine for body mind and spirit.

    Go gently on yourself… remember you’re doing the best you can! 

    Here are 5 simple science-backed self-care strategies to give your body, brain and mood a boost!

    1.  Move your body!   Exercise improves memory, learning and concentration. Moderate intensity movement, sustained over time, promotes the expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor, which causes nerve cells to grow and make new connections. It also helps improve your mood, boost your energy, and reduce stress in your body and mind. Read More >

  • 3rd August, 2021 in Body-Mind, Mental Health, Nia 13 Principles


    We all have different opinions, beliefs and fears about what is going on in in our country and the world, but one thing I’m sure we can all agree on is that it has certainly taken its toll on our body, mind, emotions and spirits.

    Financial stress, being socially isolated, feeling like I can’t express myself authentically and anxiety around what the future may hold, have all had a significant impact on my own physical and mental health over the past 18 months. I have personally gained 30kg since January 2020, putting me at the heaviest I’ve ever been. I have judged and beat myself up for this, telling myself “Erica, you know better. What are you doing to yourself?” I have set the intention to “start the diet” every Monday for the past 18 months and every time I don’t follow through, I judge myself more which just makes it worse.

    Have you been thinking about your body’s immune system and what it needs to stay balanced in order to do its job most efficiently? 

    Like many of us, you may be navigating through both emotional and physical hurdles.  What about taking time to tend to your well-being with a spotlight on your nervous system?   The sensations of a state of  ‘fight –  flight –  freeze’ (governed by the sympathetic nervous system) might be tightness in the chest, shallow breath, increased heart rate, joint pain, fear, sadness or anger.  These are signs to reach into your Nia bag of energetic movement tools and utilise what is needed in order to return to a place of balance, and back to a state of  ‘rest and digest’ (parasympathetic nervous system).

    The variety of offerings, whether they be online Nia classes, offerings or the tools learned in any and all belt trainings, allow for the return of balance, health, peace and feeling good. Read More >

    My White Belt Experience – by Giulia Ponticello

    What was your biggest takeaway from this training? 

    There have been so many takeaways, where do I start!  Being able to attend the unique experience of the White Belt ‘in person’ training was extraordinary in these times.  I gained a new awareness of my body and my body’s way in moving.  I was able to relax into awareness of my body and appreciated connecting to sensation gained through the repetition of movement katas (movement patterns).  I learned to trust my body, to listen and feel the movements, giving myself permission to stay longer in the movement to open to potential and possibility.

    Let’s Make the Most of Every Chance to Dance Together

    Three new routines are produced by Nia Headquarters each year. One of those routines is released to the Nia Teacher Membership on the very last day of the year, and it’s like receiving a Christmas present! The most recent one is called 2GETHER.

    The name 2GETHER came from Debbie Rosas’s daughter who suggested how in this time of separation, people are hungry to be together again. A reminder that we are all connected.

    Being able to get together in person and in class is something I am deeply grateful for, knowing that others may still not be able to, and also knowing that things can change very quickly and one day we may not be able to.

    That’s what they say…and it is true.

    Even Nia’s own commitment statement supports that line:

    Our focus and intent has always been for Nia to be a rich, diverse and inclusive community for every age, size, shape, gender, ability, race and ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, faith, belief system and all of the other beautiful qualities that make each individual body and spirit unique.” (

    That being said, not everybody is ready for Nia! That is something as a Nia teacher I recognise.

    An Interview with artist, Annica Malmkvist who designed the Nia Swish on our apparel collection

    In 2018 Nia Australia commissioned Brisbane artist Annica Malmkvist to design the artwork for our first apparel collection. That was such a success we again commissioned her late last year for our Spring design also. Below you will learn about Annica’s story and the inspiration behind her artwork.

    Please share with us a little of your story?

    I was born in Sweden but since 2005 I have called Brisbane home. I recently celebrated my 15th anniversary of living in Australia – that was on the 19th August. It is a very special date for me, as it is also my sister’s birthday.

    Moving here 15 years ago with my partner, the intention was for us to only stay one year, as he had secured employment here. Through sponsorship, I was able to join him in Australia. It wasn’t long before I started on my own next life chapter and began training in Kahuna Massage on the Sunshine Coast and continued training there for many years.

    With many classes moving to an online platform, we have now moved our Nia White Belt Training online too for the foreseeable future. In this Blog Post, we want to share with you seven reasons why being part of this immersion is a wonderful way to experience this popular training.

    1. There’s no place like home.

    Receive the magic and connection of a Nia Training, with comfort, privacy and convenience. Participants have reported that it helps deepen their existing practice and supports establishing a new routine when they are guided in their own home (or wherever you feel safe to come as you are).

    Every little cell in my body is healthy…every little cell…

    We are facing unprecedented health challenges on a global scale, over which we have very little control. A lack of control can generate fear. Fear generates physiological and psychological stress responses. And prolonged stress lowers your immune system effectiveness, making you more susceptible to viral infections.

    One way to temporarily feel more in control is to act out of the fear… to panic-buy toilet paper or tuna (the man in front of me at Woolworths yesterday had 50 tins)… but on the other side of that, you probably will still feel stressed… only with a very full pantry. Research suggests that while stress can drive materialism, shopping as a coping mechanism does not release stress.

    Find out what brings you Joy and do it more often…

    Stalk what steals your Joy and give it less attention.

    Sounds simple enough. But the way our brains are wired… we tend to focus on the negative. Our “fight or flight” sympathetic nervous systems are being flooded daily by external and internal stressors, real and imagined. There’s so much going on in the world that is beyond our control and these are troubling times for our planet and many who are suffering and struggling.

    I knew that I wanted to attend the White Belt Training quite quickly into my journey with Nia, but I was also conscious not to rush into it.

    For me, it was important that the time was right.

    This simply meant that I was ready to immerse myself fully into the training so I could receive what I needed to receive.

    “If music be the food of love, play on.”    Willliam Shakespeare

    I can’t imagine life without music. 

    Music can make your heart sing or make your heart cry.  Music has the power to bring back such strong memories you feel like you are reliving the moment.  Music is primal, emotive, sensual – it can energise and excite or relax and soothe. 

    And above all … it can make you want to dance!!

    Love the skin you are in!

    It’s a simple statement filled with gratitude for the body that you have now. Yet as simple as it may seem, the embodiment of this statement is sometimes easier said then done.

    For as long as I can remember, I have been experiencing the ups and downs of the relationship I have with my body. On some days I feel confident and completely at ease with my body. While other days I look down at my body with displeasure and frustration, spending the day avoiding mirrors, for I know I will not like what I see.

    Nia White Belt offers a 7-day immersion into the Art of Sensation for self-discovery, self-healing and self-mastery.

    The Training is an internationally recognised course of somatic (meaning body-centred) education. Yes, you will move a lot but it’s not all high energy cardio dance class. This is embodied learning, a well-crafted balance between cognitive and experiential journeying … Listening to your body … learning from it … consciously tracking pain and pleasure and then choosing to be kind to your body, to move with the joy of movement and feel the power of your aliveness.

    How to transform your body and life in a pleasurable way that just gets better …

    I fell in love with Nia straight away, the music and moves got under my skin and my teacher’s vivacity drew me in. Back then I had no inkling of the changes to come, even if someone had told me I wouldn’t have believed. Lucky for me, Nia has worked its magic softening edges and removing inhibitions until confidence and clarity quietly replace self-doubt.

    All this from a movement practice you ask? Yes!

    “Turbulence and divisiveness can distort our minds, leaving us susceptible to the contagion of fear. Like the common cold virus, fear is all around us….and none of us is immune.”

    The easiest way I know to build immunity against fear (and the cold virus!) is to raise our vibration with Joy, individually and collectively. Nia’s foundational principle, Joy of Movement, is more than just feeling happy. This Joy is an expansive life-affirming energy that can sit beside any emotion.

    Take a deep breath, sense how my body is feeling, how the energy is flowing around. Is there resistance? comfort? ease?

    Tune in to these sensations as it is my body my awareness of my sensory being.

    These sensations are the teachers on how I will move today. To be in my body and trust my body. Exhale, feel the fluidity in my body, the juices running into all my joints and digits exploring high, median and low, taking my body around my body feeling back and front.

    When we think about Medicine we often conjure up thoughts of bottles of pills, prescriptions, potions and many other things prescribed to us to make us feel better, to heal from an illness or prevent us from getting sick.

    What about if we switched the concept of medicine as we know it and think about how movement can heal our bodies, mind and spirit.

    This is precisely why the theme for this year’s National Playshop – Movement is Medicine. At this Australia-wide event we will be guiding those participating to sense “movement as medicine”, experiencing the healing and conditioning power of moving your body in ways that feel good to you.

    To explore this concept a little deeper we asked our teacher community what Movement is Medicine means to them. We have broken their thoughts into a few key areas:

    Nia Dance – ‘Feel the Fear & Do it Anyway’

    Whenever I’m about to do something that makes me feel nervous, I remember the quote from Susan Jeffers – “Feel the Fear & Do it Anyway”.

    Fear itself is not the enemy, sometimes it protects us from real danger. Sometimes we give fear the power to make us much smaller than we are destined to be. We need to feel our fear and then decide if it’s based in reality.
