In a Nia class we dance to a variety of music.
Nia's principles remain the same, it is a dance exercise that any BODY can do. Nia is meant for everyBODY because it uses the Body's Way. But it is understood that every BODY moves differently so safe freedom of movement is encouraged.
While Carlos (now known as Carlos AyaRosas) is no longer with the Nia Technique his routines and spirit remain a big part of Nia. Debbie is still very active in all aspects of Nia and continues to allow Nia to change and grow.
All ideas and information related to Nia is based upon their work. I often put it into my own words and state my understanding of it, but it is based off of what they have created. What has been copied from The Nia Technique Book, the Nia White Belt Manual, or the Nia Blue Belt Manual is marked as being copied from those books. Everything is used with the understanding that it is to educate people about Nia and help spread the Joy. The Nia Techique Book can be purchased from Amazon or through the Nia webiste (NiaNow.com). The Nia White Belt Manual and the Nia Blue Belt Manual is obtained by attending the respective Nia Intensives.
