“Nia is the spark that ignited my soul. Each class I take; each training I attend, that light which started out as a little glimmer shines brighter and brighter allowing me to step out in the world with greater self-confidence, self-esteem and awareness.
From the moment the first beat of music pumps out, a smile spreads across my face, my cells tingle in anticipation and my body begins to sing – Nia is a natural high that lasts all day. I get to play, yell, imagine, dance, laugh, melt, sway, sweat, crawl, roll, receive, connect, touch, feel, kick and punch my way into well-being, health and fitness. Nia is so much more than a fitness class. As a practitioner my desire is to spread the magic and awareness of Nia in the community, so others may start their own journey of self-discovery, come home to their own body and allow their soul light to shine bright.”

SheDance – A space for Women only
This dance session starts with a guided movement meditation to drop into your body and become present to the rhythm of your soul. We then gently mesh into the Nia FreeDance experience designed to awaken the artist within and to stimulate an individual’s Art of Conscious Dance.
Guided by a Trained and Certified Nia FreeDance DJ, participants explore their own movement in their own way and in their own time. Participants dance to soul-stirring music, eclectic sonic landscapes that provide cellular resonance to evoke self-expression, and unleash movement creativity. SheDance explores the integration of body, emotion, mind and spirit through a unique focus for each Nia FreeDance experience.
This class is open to every Body. No previous experience necessary. No Dance experience.
Nia FreeDance is a conscious dance practice that inspires you to move, explore and create in your own unique way. Evocative music ignites a sense of freedom as your body, mind, emotions and spirit unite, taking you to the source of your authentic dance.
