What we're about

For adults of all ages, shapes, sizes and fitness levels - Nia is a non-impact, adaptable movement form available to every body.

To increase individual & community wellness, Helen will be offering Nia classes in Auckland as of November 7th, 2019.

Mariska has been a Nia instructor since 2016. She has done her White Belt intensive in Raglan (2016). For the second level (Blue Belt) training, she traveled to NiaHQ in Portland (Oregon) and was trained by the founder of Nia, Debbie Rosas. Nia has become her passion and she is on a mission to offer this movement practice to communities. She currently offers classes in Ponsonby, Silverdale, Matakana, Warkworth and now, Leigh.

About Nia: (from the website https://nianow.com/about-nia )

Combining dance, martial arts and mindfulness, Nia tones your body while transforming your mind. More than just a workout, Nia is a holistic fitness practice addressing each aspect of your life - body, mind and soul.

We believe every person can discover, explore, unleash, and enhance their individual potential to live a healthy and meaningful life by engaging their senses and listening to their bodies.

Nia is based on the intelligent design of the body. Each workout brings mindfulness to your dance movement experience leaving you energized, mentally clear, and emotionally balanced.

Nia cardio-dance workouts combine 52 simple moves with dance arts, martial arts, and healing arts to get you fit in 60 minutes - body, mind, emotion, and spirit.
