Nia Move IT
Move IT is a revolutionary approach to whole body fitness integrating the best of exercise science, modern interval training and somatic movement through Nia's sensory-based approach to fitness. The 60-minute class promises to bring conditioning to every body part and muscle group.
Move IT classes are distinguished by somatic coaching with 60-second sequential intervals that isolate and integrate Nia movements. Each class delivers four types of conditioning: aerobic, anaerobic, reflexive, and voluntary.
Nia Move IT results in:
Deepened awareness of your body's anatomy
Whole body strength, physical dexterity, muscle tone
Improve range of motion in all joints of the body
Skill to consciously direct your movement practice toward your fitness goals
Nia 5 Stages of Healing
Nia 5 Stages is a physical practice based on five stages of human development: Embryonic, Creeping, Crawling, Standing and Walking. Consciously moving through these stages as an adult re-integrates the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual elements in such a way that after just five minutes of practice, participants notice improvements in power, range of motion and ease in areas of their bodies other forms of exercise do not affect. This process of realignment allows the body to do what it is designed to do: explore its potential, self-heal and grow.
Nia 5 Stages practice results in:
Increased energy and vitality
Improved posture and grace
Increased Sensory IQ and overall body awareness
A deep sense of relaxation
Physical and energetic alignment
Nia 5 Stages practice is excellent for:
Reclaiming optimal alignment and functioning
Releasing tension and blocked energy
Regaining flexibility, agility, mobility, strength and stability
Reclaiming and maintaining joint mobility and muscle balance
