Love your body. Love your life Dancing yourself to holistic health and fitness


Done Barefoot to Diverse and Inspiring music, Nia is a transformational movement practice that teaches you to be more JOYFUL, EXPRESSIVE and ALIVE.  Nia is holistic, engaging your body, mind, emotions and spirit.

A movement form for all

“Watch out - this can change your life!”
—Carlos Rosas, Nia co-founder

Nia is a path to condition, heal and express yourself through movement and sensation. A dynamic blend of dance arts, martial arts and healing arts, Nia revolutionized the face of fitness in 1983, and has since changed millions of lives and bodies across the globe. Balancing technical precision with free-form expression, Nia brings the body, mind, emotions and spirit to optimum health through music, movement and self-expression, guided by the sensation of Pleasure.

Nia is designed for any body. It is ageless and limitless, transformational and effective for every person everywhere, from athletes, dancers and fitness instructors, to children, special needs groups and the elderly. With the philosophy, Through Movement We Find Health, Nia addresses the whole person through music and movement integrated from nine traditional movement forms.

Dancing Through Life: The Nine Movement Forms of Nia
Martial Arts: T’ai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido
Dance Arts: Jazz Dance, Modern Dance, Duncan Dance
Healing Arts: Yoga, Alexander Technique, The Teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais®

Through Nia practice, you learn to foster awareness of your life through physical sensation, allowing the Voice of The Body to direct your actions and choices, leading to a general state of what Nia calls Dynamic Ease. Practiced barefoot to music, each person is invited to move at his or her own level of intensity, adapting the 52 Moves to their body potential at any given moment. While delivering cardiovascular, whole-body conditioning, Nia creates a loving relationship with one’s own body by tuning into The Body’s Way: the innate intelligence of the body.

Most of all, Nia is exhilarating and fun!

Littleborough Cricket Club (off Denhurst rd) Calderbrook rd, Littleborough, lancs, OL15 9LD


“DONATE TO SHAVE MY HEAD” & “DANCE TO GIVE” NIA CHARITY EVENT

This very special Dance event will be the end of a journey for me. I will have past the last 2 months raising money for a charity dear to my heart :Journeys - Towards Recovery from Depression”

Do feel free to watch this moving video telling you why I WILL shave my head and why “YOU SHOULD” Donate grin......

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsm2bDOqc90&feature=plcp

Now that you understand…I would love if you put this date in your diary and join me, on the 17th November…

We will Celebrate Life, you will celebrate YOUR Life, WE will raise more money to support the meaningful and loving work of “Journeys - Towards Recovery from Depression”

All that with Soulful music, joyful Dancing, your choice of food (Bring food to share) and most importantly, friends / family / children to share Happy and Loving Vibes with.

We will start with a Nia jam (taught by a few talented Nia teachers) at 5pm - then the bar will open at 7pm for us to start the party. Bring food to share: NO need to check with me what to bring…I have already arranged with the Universe the “Perfect” variety of the most delicious dishes…just follow your inspiration and we will have a feast wink!

There will be a raffle on the night and I would also really appreciate a small donation (£3/5) for the room, as this will mean there will be more money going to the charity.

IMPORTANT! Should you make the effort to come from anywhere in the world , I will be able to suggest affordable or free accommodation with friends! Just contact me directly grin
