What is Nia?
Nia is a barefoot, sensory-based, holistic movement class. It combines the martial arts, dance arts and healing arts to create a mindful movement experience for everyBODY at every fitness level. Nia believes 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.
How Does Nia FreeDance Work?
Nia FreeDance is guided by a Certified Nia FreeDance Teacher. They support you to explore your own movement in your own way and in your own time. Dance to eclectic, soul-stirring music to evoke self-expression and unleash movement creativity. The 4 parts of Nia FreeDance explore the integration of body, emotion, mind and spirit through a unique focus for each Nia FreeDance experience.

“I am passionate about helping women wake up and realise they matter. I do this by supporting them to re-align with their power, embrace their gifts and transition in to doing the things they love now, so they can live a life of flow and freedom through coaching and education.
As a former professional tennis player, I had struggled for years to find movement that I really in-joyed. I did my first 2 Nia classes early in 2014 and then did my 3rd class November 2017. After that class I registered for the Nia White Belt Training. Between my second and third Nia classes, I experimented with many movement forms, but none that I felt really connected to (although I did resume playing tennis for a while).
During my mindfulness training and then later in the Nia White Belt training, I started to take notice of my body more and wake up parts of my body that had been asleep. I loved the way the teachers supported me to be my own authority and take notice to what I was sensing. This was quite different from what I experienced before. I am now continuing to embody my life and move my body in a way that feels nourishing!”
