“Nia is both therapeutic and enjoyable. The movements feel natural
and open up insights and feelings that will make you feel like you are
discovering yourself in a new way.”

Nia: Moving to Heal
Your body’s way–for all abilities
A delightful mixture of dance, martial arts, and mindfulness, Nia is a holistic fitness practice for your body, mind, and soul. The Moving to Heal (M2H) Nia class experience is often defined simply by the words, “I feel better.” Participants learn how to personalize movements and adapt them to their health needs. These Nia M2H classes empower people of shapes, sizes, and abilities by connecting the body, mind, emotions, and spirit.
The philosophy of Nia is if it feels good, keep doing it! If it hurts, stop and adapt your movements to feel better. Classes are done barefoot to soul-stirring music, but if your feet feel better in socks or shoes, go for it! You can dance standing or in a chair. You can dress in clothes you feel comfortable moving in and you may want to have water close by!
1. If you are new to these classes, please email me to let me know you plan to attend: email@example.com. Then I will send you a health waiver to complete and send back to me so we can have it on file for the UVA Cancer Center.
2. You will want to first download Zoom on your computer, tablet, or phone.
3. Click “Zoom Client for Meetings” when you get into the Zoom website for the first time.
4. Please MUTE your device upon entry to the meeting/class. Look for the microphone picture on the bottom left of your screen. When we chat before and after class, you can unmute if you choose.
