12 Tips to Make Every Nia Class Magnificent for the Body and Mind

By: Nia  |  October 25, 2011

From the music that makes us groove (downtempo, world, reggae, electro-acoustic, jazz, rock) to the clothes that make us feel free to the workouts that let us dance from our hearts, Nia is so much more
than an opportunity to sweat and get our heart rates up. It's a chance to remind ourselves just how
much we love our bodies and lives. And here are 12 tips to make every experience that much better:

1. Arrive with purpose
Set a personal intent for yourself before you walk in the room. What do you hope to accomplish?

2. Dress for passion
Wear cool, loose fitting clothes that make you feel comfortable and beautiful. Visit our online store to check out our full line of NiaWear clothing.

3. Take off your shoes
Use the 7,000 nerve endings in each bare foot to move in safe and efficient ways. Feel free to opt for soft, flexible-soled shoes as an alternative.

4. Follow The Body’s Way
Use your body according to its inherent design and function. Never force a move.

5. Seek dynamic ease
Perform movements with maximum efficiency and minimal effort.

6. Express yourself
Be yourself and have fun.

7. Breathe and make sound
Use your voice to blend motion and breath. Exhale with sound to condition and engage your core.

8. Protect your knees
Sink gently. Whenever you lower your body weight, feel your buttocks move back to avoid pushing your knees forward over your toes.

9. Use your hands
Engage your hands to generate powerful and graceful arm movements. Keep your wrists, elbows and shoulder joints mobile and relaxed.

10. Engage your spine
Keep your spine strong, mobile and flexible by moving an imaginary ring of air around your waist and neck.

11. Love your body
The best way to heal and transform your body and life is to love your body unconditionally, the way it is now.

12. Dance through life
For the best results, dance Nia at least three times per week. Remember all Nia concepts can be applied to everyday life, outside of the studio.

Nia has been and still is a beautiful gift and a blessing to my life, which I continually receive knowledge and information from. I can't imagine my life without Nia! Thank you, Debbie Rosas Stewart and Carlos Aya Rosas for bringing this beautiful blend of music and fusion fitness to the world and to MY life!

The unique and blended methods of the Nia Technique offers a wonderful fitness experience in self-discovery and self-expression! Nia is not like any other workout I've ever experienced before...Nia is a life practice of ongoing learning and discovering!

Nia is FUN and truly excites my entire body each time I attend another instructors class or guide my own class!

Nia is the first workout I have discovered that leaves my body desiring more!

Nia has made me realize how important it is to listen to my body and become mindful and aware while exercising, sitting in a chair and even as I wake up and start my day each morning!

Thank you Nia!
