Nia Moving to Heal

Nia Moving to Heal is ‘Movement as Medicine’ and is for anybody seeking a gentler movement practice to compliment and facilitate healing of body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Nia Moving to Heal experience is defined simply by “I feel better.” Students learn how to personalise movement to adapt to their comfort and health needs. Chairs are available for students to maximise stability, pleasure, and comfort.

Nia Moving to Heal teaches people to listen to the voice of the body – sensation. Sensation is a tool for self-healing. Sessions begin with a body awareness walk (or seated as needed) and ends with body gratitude. Students are guided through a mindful movement experience using Nia’s 7 class cycles beginning with a focus and intent, warm up, mindful movement, cool down, movement on the floor (or chair) and consciously stepping out. Each session culminates in a “Dancing Through Life” tip – to bring the self-healing focus into the individuals’ daily lives.

Nia is the one movement practice that delivers the creative expression of dance, the power of the martial arts, and the functional movement of the healing arts, creating a synergistic blend of movement forms that no other isolated movement form can match!

For over 35 years Nia has been helping people to use movement to feel better in their body, and helping people with short and long term illness benefit by using movement as part of their prescription for healing. Whether it be cancer, chronic pain, anxiety/depression, Parkinson's, brain injuries, or eating disorders, use Nia Moving to Heal to step in to your body's healing potential!

Moving to Heal classes are offered as a 5-week course. A minimum of 6 participants is required in order for a course to proceed. If you are interested in this course, please contact Stephanie.
