Why I Love Nia

Hands down the best movement / life therapy I've experienced. The music will call you, the rhythms will send you tapping, twirling, stretching, flowing to heal this one of a kind body we've been gifted with. Embrace it and Nia will love you back!!

-Ellen Parish


13+ years into the practice, Nia continues to support an enjoyable, soul-friendly everyday practice that honors all aspects of being human: body, mind, emotions, spirit. It's a workout, a community builder, a possibility to create livelihood in ways I could not imagine - and yet, hoped for. It's sweat, silliness and serenity in the same package.

-Minna Aalto

I do Nia Because..

Nia has taught me to listen to the wisdom of my body. I find strength and peace where I thought there was none. I am fiercely proud of my body and all it is capable of. My life is truly made better because of this practice.

-Rachel Prince


Nia for me is all about the magic of music,movement and community. It’s one of those things you have to try just once and you immediately get a big payback! Joy, groove, creativity, power, freedom all in one hour.

-Vicci Calvo Kane
