What is Nia? (pronounced knee-a)

nia Nia is an expressive body-mind-spirit movement program that offers an artistic and innovative approach to fitness and healing. Blending aspects of Martial Arts, Dance Arts, and Healing Arts, Nia provides a variety of movement dynamics to create an experience that involves your whole body, as well as your spirit. The stillness and concentration of Tai Chi, the dynamic poses of Yoga, the explosive power of Tae Kwon Do, and the grace and spontaneity of Modern and Ethnic dance make it possible to create a whole new sense of well-being! The use of eclectic, rich music, guided imagery, powerful kinesthetic cues, and heart-felt joy add to the full experience of a Nia class.

Nia classes are generally offered as group exercise classes that are one hour long. Regular attendance at a Nia class can result in weight loss, cardiovascular conditioning, stress relief, body-mind integration, pain management, improved self-image, social connection, and much, much more. Most people agree that Nia is fun! This keeps them coming back for more. Students of Nia enjoy the experience so much it is easy to make it part of their regular schedule. Beyond the fun of Nia, there is a more profound experience that comes from learning about, and moving in accord with, The Body's Way.

Nia is so gentle on the joints, it is typically done barefoot. However, students can also wear dance shoes if their body prefers the support. Nia is done wearing comfortable, breathable clothing that's as dressed-up or dressed-down as you like.

SummerCorrie Summer Corrie is so happy to be sharing Nia's sweet and fun movement!

“Nia has been a very personal experience and I think that's one of the magical things it has to offer. When I walk into the door of my Nia class, it becomes my hour to dance out my pains, my happiness, my heaviness. Whatever it is I have, I put it into the dance and work it out however I need to. How cool. Gratitude fills me...and the room, you can just feel it emanating from everyone who's having their own personal experience on what it is to be human.”

Summer is also a licensed massage therapist and has her own practice,
Sat Nam Massage, in High Falls, NY. She is also a singer and actor, and a lover of kundalini yoga.
