Nia Moving to Heal is ‘Movement as Medicine’.  It is for anybody seeking a gentler movement practice to compliment and facilitate healing of body, mind, emotions, and spirit. “Healing” as defined by Nia is defined simply by “I feel better.” Students learn how to personalize movement to adapt to their comfort and health needs. Chairs are even made available for students to utilize for maximum 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 seven 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.

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 anxiety/depression, cancer, chronic pain, Parkinson’s, brain injuries, eating disorders, etc, use Moving to Heal to step in to your body’s healing potential!
Chairs are available and used. Carers are welcome, FREE of charge.
