What to expect from a Nia Class

Nia is for body, mind and soul. Nia routines provide continuous movement designed to improve ‘functional’ fitness. It includes cardio and toning. As well as flexibility, joint mobility, stability, agility and stress relief. All this fitness happens while you focus on enjoying great music in a supportive, friendly community! 

Nia Classes are between 60-70 min. A class follows this structure:

  • Step in - Every class has a specific focus. 

  • Warm up - Turn on your metabolism, tune in your mind & lubricate your joints

  • Get moving -  Bring up your heart rate and exhilaration 

  • Cool down - Enjoy moving with ease & transition to the floor

  • Stretching & Floor Play - Align, heal, integrate and enhance range of motion

  • Stillness and/or moving meditation - Return to your centre

  • Step out - Every class to be in gratitude and a sense of clarity
