Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that leads to health, wellness and fitness. It draws from disciplines of the martial arts, dance arts and healing arts. Every 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. 

Nia training follows a series of progressive belt levels: White, Green, Blue, Brown and Black Belt. Each belt explores 5 body and life competencies for health and vitality, and includes 50+ hours of education in the form of movement, interactive discussion and self-reflection. All teachers are required to be a Livelihood Member, which grants a license to teach and professionally represent Nia.
