In Nia, we believe that 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.
One thing that makes Nia unique is how much intention goes into everything. Instructors have a focus and intention before every class they teach. While we may practice the same routine for many weeks, the intention changes each time. We may focus on the knees, the breath, or maybe listening to the music. We are able to experience movement and our bodies in unique ways each week as we apply the focus.
This same intention goes into the creation of full Nia routines. In January we will be dancing to the new routine, Source. In this routine, the focus is the EYES with the intention to engage the spine and direct attention. Have you ever free danced with your eyes? Curious? You can learn more from creators Kelly Rae Oien and Kevin Vereecke in this video:
I hope you will join us!
