Learn about Nia from the nianow.com website:
Nia is a physical conditioning movement journey of self-discovery, self-healing and self-mastery.
Nia’s unique, somatic approach to education stems from two triads: Body-Mind-Spirit and Science-Craft-Art. These triads provide the structure for a profound, ongoing journey of self-knowing and self-mastery.
All Nia education is based in applied anatomy (The Body’s Way) and the Science-Craft-Art of movement, music and philosophy. The technique includes 52 principles, 52 moves and the Five Sensations of Fitness to develop holistic conditioning for the body, mind, emotions and spirit.
Nia Intensive Training supports each person’s unique potential and transformation through body-centered movement education. While many who attend Nia trainings become professional Nia teachers, the program is designed to support growth and transformation for all people and purposes. For many students, Nia principles and philosophy become a lifestyle practice devoted to loving one’s body and Creating a Sacred Livelihood.
Debbie Rosas and Carlos Rosas began creating Nia in the early 1980s in Portland Oregon. They envisioned Nia would change the way the world went about getting fit and finding wellness in body, mind, spirit and emotions. Today, Nia has approximately 2,200 Licensed Teachers in more than 43 countries worldwide.
