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. (Nia USA website)
First principle of Nia is, dance “Your Body’s way”, Nia is suitable for everyone in all levels of practice, it enable each participant to choose her level and dance his own ability, We listen to our body and dance it’s way. The special combination of dance forms (jazz, modern, oriental) and martial arts (tai chi, taekwondo, aikido), enables us to move through a gentle, yet dynamic forms of training.
Second principle, and yet main and important, is “The Joy of movement” connecting our body to the music we discover joy in each step and in life.
Nia is a way of living for me, through Nia dance I can work out and yet have fun and enjoy movement and rhythm. Graduated white belt of the Nia training technique, I am proud to be a member of the Nia community. I started as a belly dance performer and instructor, after several years of focusing on my busyness as a photographer, I discovered Nia, which brought me back to dance and the love of movement. Nia brings balance to my life, I learn how to tone my body and physically express myself.
