Nia is a dynamic, expressive fitness and lifestyle practice that integrates your body-mind-emotions-spirit leaving you feeling recharged and fully alive! Done barefoot to diverse and inspiring music, Nia will inspire, motivate and help you move toward your health and fitness goals through a process that is based upon pleasure!

Nia challenges the nervous system by stimulating both extrinsic and intrinsic muscle groups, and encourages one to move systemically (whole body movement). The one-hour choreographed classes are a combination of 52 moves which are inspired by 9 different movement forms: The dance arts give Nia its expression (jazz, modern dance, Duncan Dance), the martial arts provide precision (tai chi, tae kwon do, aikido) and the healing arts bring about functionality and self-healing (Feldenkrais method, Alexander Technique, yoga).

Nia is adaptable for everybody, regardless of age or level of fitness.

"Experiencing Nia for me was pure joy. Ali, I'm so grateful to you, your enthusiastic way of teaching and your passion for Nia has allowed us to fall in love with the practice. You did not only teach us, you guided us, you offered your friendship, your trust, your smile and shared your energy. The Jornada Yoga family will never be the same." - Dunia de los Reyes, Yoga Teacher - Jornada Yoga, Subic Bay, Philippines
