The Nia Technique (also known as Nia Dance) is a flowing form of 52 non-impact motions that is a unique blend of martial, dance and healing arts disciplines. This dance form is extremely versatile, allowing it to meet the needs of any individual or adjust to their level of competence. The degree of exercise is not extremely strenuous or aimed to tire out your body because movements are not pushed and are conducted based on what your body feels comfortable with.
Dance NZ is one of New Zealand’s few Nia Dance organizations that offers both physical and online classes. Dance NZ, with locations in Hamilton and Raglan, offers lessons to suit each individual’s ability or needs, so you don’t have to worry about losing out on Nia Dance’s incredible health and emotional advantages!
Improving Emotional Wellbeing
Listening to your body and modifying moves to what feels natural to you are other important aspects of Nia Dance. As previously said, each action is highly adaptable to your abilities and needs. You may also add your own personality to the movements to make it feel as if you’re dancing the way your body wants you to. Being able to dance as you want and let go is an excellent method to relieve stress and open your mind to wellbeing.
Nia Dance provides you with both music and social support, which are both fantastic methods to improve your overall wellness. Nia Dance’s music was created with binaural frequencies, as well as certain instruments and chord combinations, in mind. Your mental and emotional well-being will also be bolstered by the friends you make at various Nia Dance courses and hangouts.
Positive Affirmations and Nia Dance
You may do Nia Dance with like-minded people in a good setting with a supportive, guiding instructor at Dance NZ. A social connection is always something you’ll encounter at Dance NZ, whether you wish to join a class online or in person. At-person classes are given in a variety of locations in Hamilton and Raglan. Zoom is a platform that allows students to take online classes.
Dance NZ provides five different classes, all of which have the same life-affirming effects. The sole variation between these programs is the design, with each class better suited to various talents or aims, such as pain relief or Parkinson’s symptom improvement. Nia Dance Move to Heal is a class that focuses on pain relief and gentle movement. This session’s motions were created to aid people in healing from accidents or illnesses.
Both Classic Nia and Mild Nia are suitable for dancers of all levels, however, Gentle Nia is ideal for those who have limited mobility or prefer gentle workouts. Classic Nia is seen to be more suitable for more advanced dancers. Nia for Parkinson’s Freedom Dancing is a Parkinson’s dance class open only to Parkinson’s patients and their caregivers.
Depending on the class you choose and why, you’ll likely meet people who are not just on the same path as you in search of positive life-affirming impact, but also people who can connect to your abilities and requirements. Being able to relate to and relate to others in similar situations will make you feel more supported.
