About NIA

NIA (Neuromuscular Integrative Action), was created by Debbie and Carlos Rosas, of Portland, Oregon, in an effort to offer an alternative to the typical aerobics class. Through years of research, study, and practice, Debbie and Carlos have given to the world of fitness a systemic movement art that is safe for all ages and body types, and is enjoyed by people throughout the United States, Europe, Scandinavia, South America, and Canada.

NIA blends Eastern and Western movement arts, including Tai Chi, Tai Kwon Do, Aikido, Yoga, and Modern Dance, to create a unique, non-impact aerobic workout. Each movement expresses the eloquence of the spirit moving in harmony with the mind and body, while utilizing all the essential fitness elements- strength, endurance, balance, relaxation, flexibility.

NIA is safe for all ages and body shapes, and is presented in levels of intensity so you can choose the degree of movement that's right for you. Within each class, you'll find a different intention and focus, with various styles of music, such as reggae, jazz, classical, world beat and celtic creating a fun and movable environment!

If you are looking for a new way to relax, stay fit, and and enjoy life just a little bit more, contact one of the teachers listed on our site, and find out what NIA can do for you!
