*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.
