Maybe you teach Nia and figure you know plenty about the Nia principles from your teachers and trainers.

Why would you be interested in an Unofficial Guide to the Nia Principles?

Maybe you take Nia regularly and love it. Maybe you know about the Nia principles and maybe you don’t but either way, it doesn’t seem to affect your experience in class one way or the other.

Why would you be interested in an Unofficial Guide to the Nia Principles?

Maybe you’ve never heard of Nia and have no idea what it is.2

Why would you be interested in an Unofficial Guide to the Nia Principles?

Maybe you wouldn’t be caught dead taking a Nia class and think it’s a silly pursuit done by silly people in silly pants.

Why would you be interested in an Unofficial Guide to the Nia Principles?

Why? Because you have a body and the Nia Principles can increase your awareness, increase pleasure and ease and improve healing in that body of yours.

The Unofficial Guide to the Nia Principles is a culmination of my own practice, teaching and philosophy about body~mind movement and education. The Unofficial Guide is an inquiry into the 13 Principles of Nia as they apply to anything you do with your body. It is my take on the real power of the practice of Nia: how these principles can be used in all aspects of our lives: work, sports, parenting, relationships, sex, everything. No matter who you are, the 13 Principles (and The Unofficial Guide) have something to offer you.

Since beginning my practice of The Nia Technique in 1999, what keeps me interested in Nia isn’t the particular movements we do in class. The moves we do are carefully crafted to train, condition and heal the body in a unique way, but they are actually a small part of what keeps me practicing Nia.

What’s compelling about Nia is the universality and the practical application of the 13 Principles. The particular movements you happen to do don’t actually matter at all – whether it’s Nia’s 52 moves or asanas in a yoga series or dribbling a basketball or weeding a garden or walking a dog. The principles apply to every kind of movement – every sport, every practice, every single movement performed with the human body.

This unofficial, practical guide to the 13 principles is designed to help everybody and anybody experience more ease, health, and pleasure in the body – no matter what kind of movement you do.
