The Nia class will begin at the regular time–but if you want to come an hour early to enjoy this special content, I’d love to share this with you!
This love-filled class includes an “appetizer” hour of discussion, presentation, inquiry, and mindfulness. It will be sealed in with a special “main dish” Nia routine during our regular class hour. We will explore easy ways to create mind-heart-body balance aimed at reducing your stress, increasing your energy, and amplifying your resilience. You will discover 20 tips that can bring more balance, energy, peace, pleasure, and well-being.
*Thanks to a generous grant from the Charlottesville Women’s Four Miler, these classes are FREE for people with cancer, cancer survivors, caregivers, and UVA Cancer Center staff.
Thank you to our neighbors at the University Baptist Church for offering this space for our Nia classes.

Nia: Moving to Heal
Your body’s way–for all abilities
A delightful mixture of dance, martial arts, and mindfulness, Nia is a holistic fitness practice for your body, mind, and soul. The Moving to Heal (M2H) Nia class experience is often defined simply by the words, “I feel better.” Participants learn how to personalize movements and adapt them to their health needs. These Nia M2H classes empower people of shapes, sizes, and abilities by connecting the body, mind, emotions, and spirit.
The philosophy of Nia is if it feels good, keep doing it! If it hurts, stop and adapt what you do to feel better. Classes are done barefoot to soul-stirring music, but if your feet feel better in socks or shoes, go for it! You can dance standing or in a chair. You can dress in clothes you feel comfortable moving in and you may want to bring a water bottle.
Weather-related or unforeseen class cancellations will always be posted at the top of this page and the Nia page.
