Nia with Sophie Online Classes

Brisbane QLD, Australia

Get out of your head and reconnect with your body, heart and spirit.  Join our online community for an hour of Joy-full music and movement without leaving home!  With permission to do it the way that feels right for you, an hour of Nia will leave you feeling more energised, clear-headed, calmer and connected. 

Kick off your shoes and slip into something that makes you feel good while you move. (If there are physical reasons not to practise barefoot, soft sole shoes can be worn.)

Make sure you have some clear floor space around you to move safely. You might like to have a towel or yoga mat for when we move, stretch and rest on the floor towards the end of class. 

Classic Nia is a joyful, low impact, movement class inspired by soul-stirring music. Nia’s unique blend of martial arts, dance and mindfulness gives you an energising cardio workout that benefits body, mind, emotions, and spirit. You will be guided to listen to your body and practice being with sensations of pleasure and ease. Adaptable for all ages and fitness levels. Nia meets you where you’re at and invites you to move in your own body’s way.

Gentle Nia is a playful and relaxing movement experience infused with music that benefits body, mind and spirit. It includes the fundamentals of a Classic Nia class at a slower pace for those wanting more of a work-in than a workout. It provides more time and space for you to mindfully connect to life-force energy and move in your body’s way.

Nia 5 Stages is a richly-layered moving meditation which creates deeper body-awareness and self-healing. In this floor-based practice, you will be guided to move through the five stages of embryonic, creeping, crawling, standing and walking in your body’s way. Re-align and energise your body and calm your nervous system by connecting with the healer within.  What does it look like?
