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’ll be guided to listen to your body, moving with sensations of aliveness, 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.

Nia Moving to Heal classes support people dealing with a range of issues, such as illness, injury, trauma, addiction, and depression to experience mindfulness and movement as medicine. With inspiring music, you will be guided to slow down and personalise movement for your body’s way. It is a positive and conscious path to feeling better. Students who wish to participate while seated in a chair are fully supported.

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.
