Nia is a beautiful blend of simple steps and free dance—where anything goes movement wise. Combining martial arts, dance arts, and healing arts, each Nia class tunes your mind and spirit as it tones your body.
Take a dash of tai chi, a sprinkle of yoga, a splash of jazz dance, add some playful shouts and calming breaths and bake or sizzle for 55 minutes at your desired temperature. All ages, all abilities. Low-impact, barefoot. Wear something stretchy and get ready for the sweetest sweat ever!
Feeling the music and sharing my love of movement is a true joy. I bring both beautiful imagery and guidance for self-healing to my classes. Come join me. Express your mind, emotions, and spirit through your body. Fully. Completely. With grounded conditioning you build at your pace.
"Aliess' Nia classes feed my body and soul. Her caring, non-judgmental guidance and warmth welcome all who enter. Her Nia dance workout stretches the spirit as well as the body, strengthens the mind and every muscle, and relaxes tension as it heals the emotions. No other exercise class offers all these opportunities in one place and time. Aliess does so with joy and heart."
