A classic Nia class follows a seven cycle program: 
1. Setting the focus: We focus on one aspect of the practice, it is woven artfully throughout the practice.
2. Stepping in: We enter and step into the experience, leaving all distractions and concerns behind.
3. Warming up: This is where we prepare our body to move, warming up the joints.
4. Getting moving: We move at a higher energetic pace, conditioning our body and cardiovascular system
5. Cooling down: Still dancing and upright we use movements that cool down our body.
6. Floor play: Using the floor, we play and condition our body using gravity, space, and the art of moving on the floor to become strong, stretched, defined and balanced. 
7. Stepping out: We seal the experience by consciously stepping out.
 
The technique is founded on 52 basic moves for the base, the core, and the upper extremities, that are used to create the body-friendly choreography of the class. The nine movement forms, of Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, Jazz, Modern Dance, Duncan Dance, Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique and Yoga, inspire the class with soft and slow dynamics, as well as the powerful energy of Tae Kwon Do and the playfulness of Dance. Nia choreography blends these dynamics to create a class that offers ample movement in a state of dynamic ease. Everyone can do Nia because the movements are so adaptable to varying skill and fitness levels. Nia is generally done in bare feet. Shoes are also fine.
 
The first principle of the Nia Technique is the Joy of Movement. We believe movement can be pleasurable to the body, and when we move towards pleasure we move towards healing. There are lots of smiles and happy people in Nia classes. Some even say Nia has changed their lives!

Nia: Moving To Heal

***NOTE: there will be no class on Saturday October 27th.***

You may not currently hold the attitude and belief that the human body can heal itself, but it can.  By self-healing, we mean doing something to feel better -- not necessarily resulting in a cure, although a cure can happen.  If you doubt you can self-heal you’re not alone.  No matter how many times you may have attempted, and feel you have failed at healing, this moment is different...

You're ready for a change.

A Moving to Heal class is set apart from other exercise programs by its purpose: turning movement into a therapeutic experience.  We use movement as medicine to support people in recovery, dealing with short-term injury or grief, or struggling with long-term trauma or illness.  Participants are taught to take charge and participate in their healing by increasing body awareness.  You will use sensation to track comfort and discomfort, and to choose pleasure to guide self-healing.  Where most classes stop at the door on the way out, Moving to Heal classes provide the tools to make movement, meditation, and positive perceptions part of everyday living, adding greater meaning and pleasure to your life.

This class is suitable for all levels, including those who wish to dance while seated, or require other special accomodations.  Contact Jeanna directly with any concerns or questions before your first class.
