Unlock energy and stimulate multidimensional movement creativity with Nia FreeDance. Nia Black Belt Krista Hiser teaches Nia FreeDance every Thursday at 5:45pm, with a monthly FRIDAY FREEDANCE version to celebrate and develop Oahu’s conscious dance community.

Cultivate life force energy though this 60 minute conscious dance experience of music, movement, and magic. Nia FreeDance is lightly guided through the realms of physical body, mental body, emotional body, and your spirit, to intentionally craft multi-dimensional creativity. Benefits include enhanced physical conditioning, self-healing, deep listening, and emotional self-awareness.

Nia Black Belt Krista Hiser guides Nia FreeDance through 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 unlock their movement creativity. 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

When I stepped into my first Nia class, I thought “this is it!” It was like a cool dance party, except it was 9 am, and in a gym. I could get fit, have fun, and wear cool pants! For me, Nia is the ultimate in efficiency: in one hour, I get a physical workout, a mental re-set, an emotional experience through music, and an energizing connection to my 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! In my classes, I create an energetic, athletic experience for every-BODY, grounded in the joy of movement, clarity of the 52 moves, freedance, and luxurious floorplay and relaxation. My style is athletic, creative, and zany. I teach Nia from my heart and I’m usually surprised at what comes out. I love to play with the spirit and energy of the group – each class is a unique co-creation that will never happen again! I am committed to Nia as a personal practice, and I teach it as a cumulative subject of inquiry. You can just show up to work out and break a sweat, but if you really choose Nia, my classes can be a catalyst transformative change. I am here 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! At Still and Moving, the Athletic Nia class is 15 minutes longer, allowing a sustained cardio peak and additional time for conditioning floorplay and strength work. In Nia, “Athletic” refers to options that can leave the ground with a jump, or press into the floor with a push up. I teach Athletic Nia by modeling the edge of Nia choreography and adding improvisational bursts of energy and freedance. But the words you will hear most out of my mouth are: “you choose,” and “here’s an option,” making even my most athletic class accessible and inspiring for all.

krista niaAn exotic journey into the unknown! Let Nia and the rhythm of the ragas seep into your pores, slowly energize your body, lift you into an exuberant dance of Joy, settle into your soul, and leave you deeply satisfied.

All 4 of Oahu’s Nia Blacks will dive into the river of the unknown, leading you through original, spontaneous choreography on this special occasion. Derived from dance, yoga and martial arts, Nia heals the body – mind – spirit connection.

The talking hand drums and bamboo flute will weave their magical rhythms and melodies from the musical tradition of India. Like jazz, Indian ragas are an improvised elaboration upon a musical theme. The ancient rhythms of the ragas are designed to benefit the spirit and body.

Light refreshments provided

Do you ever feel like you’re spending too much time looking at the teacher’s feet rather than actually enjoying yourself in class? Do you ever feel like just when you’ve finally learned a move, it changes?

krista niaJoin Nia Black Belt, Krista Hiser and learn the Nia routine, AWAKE. Krista will facilitate this fun and educational process by breaking down each move, step by step, while giving as much personalized attention as possible to each participant.

Focus and Intent: The focus of Awake is Spine – Spiral – Space. The intent is to connect your physical movement in space to the spiraling flow of energy up and down the spine.

Created by Nia Trainers Philippe Beaufour and Sabine Zweig, Awake is inspired by the image of a dolphin moving in water and the spiral of the DNA double helix. Set to the soundscape of Indian and world music, Awake is an invitation to sense, explore, and manifest the natural flow of energy moving through the body by connecting to the spine, spiraling energy, and space. The line of a spiral expands the sensation of energy flow.
