“After 3 years of teaching Nia my body is strong, I am fitter now than I was in my 20’s and I have dropped two sizes in clothes!”
However, the most amazing benefit of practising Nia is that I have developed an awareness of my body, and a sense of pleasure and satisfaction as I move through my day… and as I perform the usually unconscious tasks such as walking down the street, loading the washing machine, climbing the stairs.
This awareness, called ‘Dancing Through Life’ is one of Nia’s main principles.
Experience the joy of movement and the benefits of moving your body… the body’s way.
- You ‘re burning fat and calories
- You ‘re building your muscles
- You ‘re giving your heart a real workout
- Your feet are planted
- You’re not running or jumping
- Your mind is calm
- You’re expressive, connected
- Your spirit soars
- You’re doing Nia!
With a sense of fun and a desire to get fit, stay fit and lose weight – women in Kings Langley and Watford Hertfordshire, are enjoying Nia, fitness dance classes with a difference. The Nia class is a safe place to come and explore the sensations of movement, enjoy dance and increase your fitness, your mobility and your ‘joi de vivre’.
Nia draws from disciplines of the dance arts, martial arts and healing arts ranging from Jazz and Modern Dance to Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do and Yoga.
Every Nia class offers a unique combination of 52 moves that correspond with the main areas of the body: the base, the core and the upper extremities. The music, wonderful and inspiring, varies from world to jazz to simply soothing.
Nia is an opportunity to reconnect (or even connect for the first time) with that sense of freedom and creativity that you may have enjoyed in your childhood and youth, to feel more comfortable and at ease in your body.
As a small child I loved to move and dance spontaneously to music; as I got older I was more concerned with ‘getting it right’ and how I looked to others. Nia students have an opportunity to return to this place of freedom, to move without judgement, where no-one is watching or assessing them.
The experience of joy and pleasure that comes with Nia, this dancing, enables even people who generally don’t like to exercise, to keep coming back to class on a regular basis. All Nia movements are adaptable and can be personalised for any level of fitness and agility. Stiff beginners and highly fit athletes alike can adapt Nia to meet their needs.
