What is Nia?
Nia is a high-powered, cardiovascular movement program set to complex, customized music that blends eastern and western instrumentation and sound.
Nia was created in 1983 by Debbie and Carlos Rosas who reside in Portland, Oregon.
The movements used in Nia map directly onto the body's physiology. By tapping into the body's natural movement resources, individuals taking a Nia class are guided to move in a more energy-efficient way combining movements from dance and martial arts. They begin to condition their cardiovascular system and tone supportive muscle groups to move with dynamic ease.
