What is Nia?
Inspired by the martial arts, dance arts and healing arts, Nia is a transformational movement practice anchored in body-centred awareness. Offering holistic conditioning and a connection to pleasure, Nia classes are suitable for every body, no experience necessary.
Santha has been a mover her whole life. Studying jazz ballet as a child, as an adult she performed flamenco, studied physical theatre via Le Coq, movement/performance improvisation with Theatre of the Ordinary and more recently West African dance in Ghana and Australia. She has been participating in Nia classes for the past 15 years. In July 2016 she successfully undertook her Nia White Belt training and immediately began teaching. She completed her Blue Belt Training in 2018 and has also taken intensives in Nia’s 52 Moves and Move to Heal training.
