ROOTED & RADIANT: Nia with Dara
Shift Seattle 3517 Stone Way N, Fremont, Seattle.
Created by Debbie Rosas and Carlos AyaRosas in 1983, Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that conciously blends nine movement forms to create an hour long experience that is truly … beyond the beyond.
My love affair with Nia began in 2002 with my first Nia teacher Carolyne Rideg. Within a few of her joyous and dynamic classes … I became obsessed. Though I never imagined I would teach group fitness classes, when I moved to Seattle I saw the need for Nia teachers and I pounced.
I personally love Nia for her ability to be wildly pleasurable and meaningful in the same moment. I have tried many forms of fitness and none of them elicit my spirit and switch me to ON, like Nia.
I offer classes that deliver a strong and fluid workout. My desire is that you leave class feeling rooted, radiant … and sweaty.
Here are some of the nice things people say about my classes:
“Dancing Nia with Dara is pure heaven in the body.” L.H. Portland, OR
“I am not sure what hit me, but I was surprised by my reaction. I wanted to cry and laugh at the same time. Great workout. I loved it. Magical.” D.C. Seattle, WA
“I love Nia with Dara. Her classes are always so invigorating and spiritual!” J.L., Seattle, WA
“Nia with Dara is unlike anything else I know. Sacred, fun and expressive.” F.B. Seattle, WA
“I’d never done Nia before. WOW! I felt a connection with my body and movement that I haven’t felt in years! I’m addicted.” M.L. Seattle, WA
“Nia with Dara turns my ordinary metal into gold.” R.S. Seattle, WA
