What is NIA?
Moving to Heal allows us to feel better by building a trusting relationship with the awareness of sensation. As a trauma-informed practice, each session will introduce a focus related to healing, and our moves will explore that focus. Nia blends the energies of dance, martial arts and healing arts. It is gentle and adaptable, suitable for all levels of fitness regardless of health status or mobility limitations, and can be enjoyed seated or standing. Moving together in community offers opportunities for shared rhythm and playful exploration. In Nia, we know that through movement, we find health.
