LIFE GIVING WELLBEING JOY

Community Nia for Everybody
Nia is the art of movement the body's way. Nia is a cardio-dance workout, a movement practice, and lifestyle based on the intelligent design of the body.
We believe every person can discover, explore, unleash, and enhance their individual potential to live a healthy and meaningful life by engaging their senses and listening to their bodies.
Nia tones your mind and tunes your body. Each workout brings mindfulness to your dance movement experience leaving you energized, mentally clear, and emotionally balanced.
Nia cardiodance workouts combine 52 simple moves with dance arts, martial arts, and healing arts to get you fit in 60 minutes body, mind, emotion, and spirit.
Nia is practiced barefoot, nonimpact, and adaptable to individual needs and abilities. Nia classes are taught by licensed Nia teachers.

Rest. Food. Bodywork. Warmth. Community.
These are the 5 essentials of Mother-centered postpartum care.
These essentials are found throughout the world’s ancient postpartum traditions because they are deeply rooted in women’s physiologic and psychologic needs.
Now, we’ve interwoven this time-tested postpartum wisdom with modern science to create:
INNATE Postpartum Care: Preparing for the Fourth Trimester Course.
This course consists of five classes to help Mothers, families, and their support people create a postpartum plan tailored to their unique needs.
It was designed to be taken during pregnancy - to prepare for a nourishing and regenerative postpartum period. Learn more here >> https://www.innatetraditions.
