Through Movement We Find Health Nia - Mind-Body Fitnes Nia - Non-Impact Aerobics Nia - NeuroMuscular Integrative Action Nia - Swahili: “purpose” Nia - Persian: “truth”   Nia: for Your Body Mind Spirit The Feet - The Hands that Touch the Earth Oftentimes, students who are new to Nia are concerned about dancing in bare feet. Nia is designed to be done barefoot, but listen to your feet - they might not be ready for it now. The Three Body Weights - Head, Chest And Pelvis In Nia, the three main body weights are the head, chest and pelvis. By generating your movements from the center of the body, you will begin to move in a way that will leave your spine lengthened and mobile. Your abdominal muscles will continuously be activated as will the muscles of your entire trunk. Sinking, Shifting & Rising Vs Jumping Through the shifting of body weight an integral cardiovascular workout that is limitless in its degrees of intensity is safely achieved without jogging or jumping. Stances To Express Power And Grounding When using stances you stabilize and isolate the lower portion of your body keeping your heart rate elevated by using emotion in the core of your body, your arms and hands and by changing movement dynamics. Systemic Motion As A Way To Express Your Whole Body In Nia In Nia, a systemic approach is used, applying functional, natural movements so the whole body becomes involved, stimulating and developing balance and sensory awareness. Moving Through Three Planes And Three Levels To Honour Our Bodies Moving through three planes improves coordination, balances intrinsic and extrinsic muscle groups, increases range of motion, coordinates mental and physical alertness, develops kinesthetic awareness, and blends the body and mind. Three levels of every movement provide choice, promote mind/body interest, create texture, and add variety to every single movement. This allows everyone to get as much or as little as they want from each class. Movement Qualities Focus on various movement qualities such as hard and soft, slow and fast, big and small, linear and circular, and you will change the feeling and expression of a motion, helping you tap into many new expressive parts of your personality as well as your physical body.

History of the idea (meaning) of ideas  The problem of ideas: if knowledge consists of ideas, then what is an idea? Where do they come from? How and when are they true?  History of the idea of ideas:  Plato:     Reality is dualistic: Mind – ideas vs. body -- things Ideas exist independently from the mind and transcend physical, temporal, spatial, empirical reality while making possible the appearance of empirical reality in its meaning to us. Ideas are immaterial, objective, intelligible (accessible by the mind), non-sensible (not able to be perceived empirically) Certain ideas are innate (truth, beauty, goodness, justice, love, equality, friendship, identity, difference) Descartes:     Reality is dualistic: Mind – ideas vs. body -- things But, ideas do not existence independently from the mind (or the mind of God) Ideas exist in our minds as that through and according to which we understand reality. Ideas are the object of knowledge, and the most basic ideas are innate ideas: A=A, perfection, self, God. Certain ideas are innate, such as the idea of God, perfection
