Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts and healing arts. Nia empowers people of all shapes and sizes by connecting the body, mind, emotions and spirit. Every class offers a unique combination of 52 moves that correspond with the main areas of the body: the base, the core, and the upper extremities. Stiff beginners and highly fit athletes alike can adapt Nia to meet their needs by choosing from three intensity levels. Nia’s purpose is to grow a worldwide community of healthy people who are empowered to do great things. We believe every person can discover, explore, unleash and enhance their individual potential to live a fulfilling and meaningful life by engaging their senses and listening to their bodies. 

GeGe Beall, Jessica Forsythe and Janie Peterson, Certified Nia Black Belt Instructors, love to share the art of movement with all ages and fitness levels. GeGe, Jess, and Janie encourage self-acceptance, mindfulness, and joy, in and out of the classroom!
