Nia Dance

Nia fitness classes are cardio-dance infused, easy to follow, low impact classes danced barefoot to soulful music and are truly for ANY body! Although Nia classes are choreographed, you are encouraged to find joy and pleasure in movement by sensing and moving in your body’s way by adapting to what feels comfortable for you. Nia builds body confidence, balances the nervous system, promotes fitness, health and wellbeing, and nourishes the soul. The delivery of Natasha’s Nia classes begins with a short reflection to encourage presence and mind-body connection, then transitions into the movement practice and ends with a short, guided relaxation. Absolutely everyone is welcome. No dance experience is necessary. Show up as you are!

Meet Natasha:

I discovered the incredible practice of Nia in 2017 and instantly fell in love with all aspects of it. My body, mind and spirit had been craving a movement practice that incorporated uplifting music, body connection and awareness, community and dance…and I found it! As a holistic nutritionist with a passion for health, I truly value the mind-body connection and recognize the critical importance of joyful movement for optimal health and well-being.  In 2019 I decided to leap into an intensive white belt training so that I could explore Nia further and share the benefits of Nia with others. What I experienced during the training was magical. Not only did we move, we also discovered, explored, played, felt, released, and connected. Since the training, I have been practicing Nia regularly and have noticed improvements in my energy, focus, mood, strength, and health. Nia leaves me feeling healthy, centered, grounded and joyful. I hope you will join me in my Nia classes!  Natasha Villeneuve, Holistic Nutritionist is the lead of The Natural Food Pantry Education Initiative and is a licensed Nia Blue belt instructor.
