Suitable for anyone seeking a great workout, regardless of their current fitness level.
What is Nia? Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts and healing arts. It empowers people of all shapes and sizes by connecting the body, mind, emotions and spirit. Classes are taken barefoot to soul-stirring music. Every experience can be adapted to individual needs and abilities. Step into your own joyful journey with Nia, and positively shape the way you feel, look, think and live.
“Nia is one of my most precious tools for staying connected to my body and spirit. Erin’s classes are dyanmic and fun and always adaptable to my particular mood: if I need to sweat I can sweat and if I need to be gentle there’s always room to move in my body’s own way. Nia is my time to plug in and recharge.”

Dress comfortably to move. Come prepared to move barefoot, or in non-street shoes with as thin a sole as possible. Bring water. This is class follows the Nia 7-cycle format with an intention and focus.
