What we're about

This is a group for anyone who likes to move to music and wants a closer, more positive relationship with their body. In our meetups, we spend an hour doing Nia, a whole-body workout that combines dance, martial arts and self-healing. It's a great workout that addresses the whole person, not just the body. Then we often socialize afterwards, getting to know each other and supporting each other as we heal and grow through movement. Nia is more than a dance fitness class; it is a set of principles that when practiced, promote wellness, happiness and body-mind (re)integration. In the Nia community, we are "dancing through life" together, having fun while also healing ourselves, recovering from trauma, learning body gratitude and finding health and happiness through movement. Come dance with us and see what it's like! No experience necessary. All bodies welcome; radical acceptance of all body types.
