• Moving to Heal Nia Class

The Moving to Heal Nia program* teaches people to listen to the voice of the body – sensation. Sensation is a tool for self-healing. Sessions begin with a body awareness walk (or seated as needed) and ends with body gratitude. I guide you through a mindful movement experience using Nia’s 7 class cycles beginning with a focus and intent, warm up, aerobic movement and consciously stepping out.

Each session culminates in a “Dancing Through Life” tip – to bring the self-healing focus into the individuals’ daily lives. Moving to Heal Nia experience is defined simply by “I feel better.” Students learn how to personalize movement to adapt to their health needs.

*New Moving To Heal Nia Class with Pauline Osborne on Fridays 12 – 1 pm starting January 12th, 2018

*Moving to Heal Nia classes were created through Nia Headquarters. Coincidentally my business name Moving To Heal, LLC was created separate from this program.

“I had a great time at Moving To Heal [Nia] class! Although I was there the first time was warmly welcomed and felt very comfortable there. The instructor is joyful and energetic with a smile on her face all the time :).”
—Agata, Nia student
