Nia is a fun fusion dance fitness class that blends dance with martial arts (such as tae kwon do) and healing arts (such as yoga). Drawing from these different movement forms, in a Nia class students as a group will follow the instructor to a one-hour active routine for fun, fitness and well being. Nia is a holistic practise and involves the entire body (including mind, emotions) as part of the fitness process. The Nia technique recognises that everybody moves in their own unique style and encourages creativity within the technique. Each routine is set to fun and inspiring music from around the world.
The technique is based on the body's natural way of moving. The intent is for students to gain whole body fitness while enjoying themselves and also minimising injury. Nia is designed for everyone, regardless of experience, age or level of fitness and each movement can be modified to fit your own body's fitness and energy level. Listening to your own body, rather than following exactly what others are doing in class is highly encouraged. All levels can be found in a Nia class together, from complete beginner to seasoned athletes. Everyone is welcome.
Founded in the early 1980s, Nia is popular in the United States and elsewhere in Europe. Nia is relatively new to Ireland so you're invited to join and give it a go. Come and kick off your shoes for an hour - Nia is practiced barefoot, though socks or shoes may be worn if need be. Wear comfortable, fun or funky exercise clothes!
Nia is different: if you're interested in gaining strength, confidence and coordination while enjoying yourself and feeling great, then you will like Nia.
