Nia is for everyBody -- whether you never exercise or you are a professional dancer.

Nia combines elements of dance, martial arts, and healing arts. Created in 1983 by Debbie and Carlos Rosas in California,[1] Nia blends nine movement forms:

Martial Arts - T'ai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, and Aikido
Dance Arts - Jazz dance, Modern dance, and Duncan dance
Healing Arts - Yoga, the Feldenkreis Method, and the Alexander Technique

Nia is intended to deliver cardiovascular and whole-body conditioning. Nia teachers lead students through a series of 52 basic moves, each of which can be performed at three levels of intensity and three planes of movement, in each case, high, medium, and low. Nia classes are choreographed and accompanied by a wide variety of music styles.

As in some martial arts, Nia practitioners may choose to progress through levels of training, referred to as "belts", that are required to teach Nia. A White Belt is the first level of Nia teacher training. Additional levels are Blue Belt, Brown Belt, Black Belt, and Red Belt (Trainers). Nia is headquartered in Portland, Oregon.

Problem: You are unable to feel joy because frustration is in the way.

Solution: “Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.” ~ Kurt Vonnegut

Process: One day, I began meditating on how I could move from frustration to joy in those situations as fast as possible. And, I received an inspiration that worked perfectly instantly…and works every single time I choose to use it. I share it with you here:

Wishing you great joy,
