There are numerous ways to add a little extra joy to your life each week. This can be by doing an activity that you love or improving your mental and physical health! With Nia dance, you can do both, double the joy in your life. But what exactly is Nia Dance? Well, this blog will be discussing Nia Dance as an online joyous dance in Hamilton, Raglan and through Zoom.

Let The Joy of Nia Dance Transform Your Life

Nia Dance is a non-impact holistic exercise that consists of 52 movements that are modelled after and inspired by 9 distinct martial, healing, and dance disciplines. It is best done barefoot and requires no equipment, including shoes! Nia Dance can be done standing up in a large space, such as at home, outside, or at a public class. It may also be done sitting down and simply utilising your upper body. This makes it easy for anybody to boost the joy in their life, regardless of their skills, mobility, or access to certain locations.

Nia Dance is unlike any other dance or physical activity. Nia Dance assists you in maintaining joyous energy both inside and outside of class when it comes to mental healing and giving harmony in your life through your health. It also teaches you to listen to your body and focus on the motions that seem natural to you. 

Nia Dance has the advantage of being very customizable, making it simple to personalise the moves and bring your flair and personality to the dance. You’ll get the distinct impression that you’re dancing in perfect sync with your body.

Nia Dance may also lead to a plethora of positive benefits to bring joy to you. These include improved mental, emotional, and physical health, as well as a healthier lifestyle. Nia Dance is most commonly known for its weight loss, muscular building, posture assistance, and pain alleviation benefits. It can also assist with cognitive and physiological functioning, as well as reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety. It can also aid with balance and coordination, as well as circulation and cardiovascular health. 

Bring On The Joy With Online Hybrid-Style Classes at Dance NZ

Dance NZ is a Nia Dance company headquartered in Hamilton and Raglan that offers a range of Nia Technique classes and HYBRID-style classes for people of various ages, abilities, and mobility. Belinda Goodwin, your Dance NZ instructor, has made her HYBRID-style classes more accessible by allowing you to attend from the comfort of your own home via a live Zoom session. There are also 24-hour purchasable class replays that can be purchased here from the Dance NZ website.


Both options are perfect for people who prefer working out on their own and in their own space, don’t have enough time in their schedule to attend in person, or can’t leave home due to injury or sickness, lack of transportation, or other reasons. Nia Dance doesn’t require any special equipment, such as resistance bands, weights, or even shoes, so the only considerations are the device you’ll be using to stream the class and the location in your home where you’ll be exercising. 

Once you’ve booked and registered for an online HYBRID-style class, all you have to do is download the Zoom application from your tablet, laptop, or another device that you’ll be using to stream the session. Zoom is available for download on your device here. It’s a good idea to log in to the Zoom link 5 to 10 minutes before your class begins to ensure that there are no technical issues with your internet connection, camera, or screen display. For more information on how to improve your broadband connection, see our blog here

If you have Chromecast, you can cast the Zoom session from whichever device you’re using to your TV for a larger, better visual feed for your exercise! If you don’t mind a smaller video, you may either utilise an HDMI cable or your smaller device’s screen.
