Welcome to the high-powered energizing dance cardio workout that changes your body...and your life!


One of the most innovative group exercise and lifestyle programs in the health and fitness industry, The Nia Technique generates energy, power and excitement every time.

Nia blends 52 Easy-to-Learn Moves from the worlds of dance, martial arts and yoga.  You don’t have to be a dancer, karate expert or yoga practitioner to participate. The music changes from class to class, just to keep it new and interesting…Jazz, rock, R&B, funk, reggae, Top 40, swing, soul, Latin and pop -- even classical.  The atmosphere is friendly, fun and non-judgmental. 


Nia gives you excellent cardiovascular conditioning, builds core strength, improves balance, increases flexibility and agility and leaves you energized...physically, mentally and emotionally.  Nia teaches you to become your own conscious personal trainer.  Take your workout to the intensity level that works for you. 

Start the New Year off on the right foot...on the fitness floor with Nia!


Students say:

"I'm in the best shape I've ever been in...Nia is an intense workout!  This has been one of the best life-changing things that I've ever done."


 "The first thing I noticed was that everyone in my classes learned everyone else's name.  It's amazing how you can go to conventional fitness classes for years with the same people and never speak to anyone...Nia is like a night out with the girls...with benefits!"


 "From my very first Nia class...I felt myself moving with grace and creativity - things I'd never felt before in aerobics classes..."

 Professionals say:

"I love Nia.  It's a total mind, body, spirit celebration."Christiane Northrop, M.D., Author of "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom"


 "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." – Bernie Siegel, M.D., Author of "Love, Medicine and Miracles"
