What are Nia and MELT? Nia is a unique workout that incorporates dance, martial arts, and yoga. Myofascial Energetic Length Techniques (MELT) is a simple full-body, self-treatment exercise technique that uses a soft foam roller and little balls for the hands and feet.

Enjoy a one-hour fun and fabulous fitness class that combines Nia/MELT with a series of lightweight exercises, and no experience is necessary. Reap the rewards of health benefits such as improved bone density, pain reduction, and stress relief. MELT may also help to rebalance the nervous system, decompress joints, and improve the body’s overall alignment and movement. Exercises are practiced while standing and sitting.
