“The body is the womb of the soul, a begging bowl for spirit, like Aretha when she sings.” – Gabrielle Roth

Empty yourself of all that clutter and confusion, and just dance freely. Krista Hiser, 1st degree Nia Black Belt, creates a place to unblock and unlock your energy and stimulate multidimensional movement creativity. This Friday Nia FreeDance welcomes and celebrates Oahu’s Nia and conscious dance communities

Cultivate life force energy though this 60 minute conscious dance experience of music, movement, and magic. Krista lightly guides your experience through the realms of physical body, mental body, emotional body, and your spirit. Benefits include enhanced physical conditioning, self-healing, deep listening, and emotional self-awareness.

Krista features carefully crafted soundscapes, vocal cuing, witnessing, modeling, and demonstrating the tools and stages of the Nia FreeDance practice. Fans of ecstatic dance will gain new insights, and anyone new to conscious dance will find practical tips to invoke creativity as you move. No experience in anything is required.

After the dance, we share experiences and insights to reflect on the practice. Participants have shared that:

“I feel like I can really just be me.”

“It’s like I’m resetting my aura every week.”

“I thought I was tired but I discovered new energy.”

“I revisited a memory and got a new perspective.”

“I love just listening to the music. It’s an experience I couldn’t create for myself.”

“In my experience, Nia FreeDance Technique®️ dynamically and organically utilizes my own inner knowing. I stay present through seven stages that integrate and realign my physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. Nia FreeDance is more than just joy of movement, it is a freeing architecture that enhances my self-healing and a deep therapeutic relationship with myself. Being present creates an auric shift to align with my highest Self. Nia FreeDance helps unlock my greatest potentials.” – Lani Kwon


Krista Hiser

For Krista, Nia is the ultimate in efficiency: in one hour, she gets a physical workout, a mental re-set, an emotional experience through music, and an energizing connection to her sacred purpose on the planet. It’s a workout, a dance party with friends, and a therapy session wrapped into one amazing hour! Nia is THE 21st century fitness modality.

Krista creates an energetic, potentially athletic experience for every-BODY, grounded in the joy of movement, clarity of the 52 moves, freedance, luxurious floorplay, and guided relaxation. Students love her eclectic playlists inspired by ecstatic dance.

“My style is athletic, creative, and zany. I teach Nia from my heart and I’m usually surprised at what comes out.

Yes, you can just show up to work out and break a sweat, but Krista’s classes are designed to catalyze transformative change. She says, “I teach Nia to empower each participant to love their body and their life, and to impact our community and the world by doing whatever it is they do, and doing it better because they feel better and are connected to life force.”

Krista Hiser is a Nia Black Belt with specialized training in Nia FreeDance and Nia 52 Moves. Krista’s vigorous classes are accessible and inspiring for all levels. She currently teaches Classic Nia and Nia FreeDance.

She has been committed to Nia as a personal practice for over a decade, and has been teaching and sharing this work for eight years as a cumulative subject of inquiry.
