LAUNCHING Nia 5 STAGES classes – Saturday 12th and 26th April

OurNiaSpace studio is very excited to be launching the specialty Nia 5 STAGES classes as part of the regular class offering!

Live in your body with pleasure, comfort and ease.

The Nia 5 Stages practice is based on five stages of human development: Embryonic, Creeping, Crawling, Standing and Walking. Deepen your body knowledge, experience mindful self-healing and recharge your energy.

Practicing the 5 STAGES allows your body to naturally reclaim the physical mobility, flexibility, strength, agility and stability it needs. It also provides a way  for the body to do what it does best, take care of itself and self-heal. When allowed to, the body will always move towards healing and optimal functioning.

These classes are excellent for cross-training, and powerfully complement regular Nia classes!

No previous experience is necessary..

The class experience
Unique to the 5 STAGES, each 60-minute lesson blends a cognitive study of anatomy with a poetic, sensory-based delivery. Through the art and science of The Body’s Way, students are educated about the specific focus (body part) using a skeleton (or other tactile or visual aids), and then are guided through the 5 STAGES to experientially connect to the focus in their own bodies. The class environment provides the container for participants to tap into their body’s natural ability to self-heal.
The lesson plans are brilliant somatic experiences created by Debbie Rosas (the co-creator of Nia), with topics ranging from the study of bones, joints, muscles to the chakra system, the heart and sounding.

Saturday 12th  and 26th April: 8.15am  - 9.15am

**Regular 9.30am class commences afterwards. Join us for BOTH!!

Normal class card system applies

Move I.T – a new Nia class


  • Tuesdays at 6pm with  Shelley

A Nia Move I.T” class that invites you to a fantastic fitness experience and a whole body workout where we will explore our athletic and creative potential with all of the Nia 52 moves (a minute-a-move) with some high intensity intervals to train our hearts. All high intensity FUN to great music!

Key to the foundation of Nia is personal connection to what feels good for each person and their level of pleasure and this premise is still key to a Move I.T class – working with the personal enough – not an externally produced enough!

We are excited to be able to bring you this new Nia class experience recently launched in South Africa with the first training taking place last year in November. Both Shelley and Hanri attended and are certified to teach.

Treat your body to new ways of movement fun and inspiration for the great workout experience! Awesome!

Feedback so far on the classes has been overwhelmingly positive!! ..”i Loved it … it wa s fantastic and so much fun … class was super – challenging yet fun and and brings a lovely new dimension to body awareness via the Nia approach”
