Nia Somatic Journey Workshop
Nia is the art of movement the body’s way, delivering fitness, health, power, and beauty through techniques based on the intelligent design of the body.
WHAT IS NIA?
Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts, and healing arts. Through a specific choreography to music, it helps people of all shapes and sizes connect their bodies, minds, emotions, and spirit. Created by Carlos and Debbie Rosas in the 1980s, Nia was developed as an alternative to the period’s fascination with aerobics and the high-intensity/low impact fitness crazes that left them feeling unsatisfied. It is a practice that is amoebic in nature, flowing from a scientific basis into a New Age aesthetic that is even evident in its name; NIA is both an acronym (for Neuromuscular Integrative Action), and also a derivation of the Swahili term for “with purpose".
