Dancing the Enneagram ~ 'A Nia Gram'


A Playshop to discover and dance YOU!

Begin your journey of the Enneagraom by learning about each type--and the movement around the symbol. Be open to explore each tendency with curiosity, recognizing your inner patterns that govern your behavior. Explore yourself by moving these nine "personalities" through your body to help integrate into your full potential--balanced in body (physical), head (mental, and heart (emotional). 


Using Nia and Enneamotion techniques we will explore the qualities of this sacred geometry by dancing to music that embodies each type. We end with Kate's first Enneagram Routine!


Come ready to learn, dance and express your unique self!

Join our New Triangle-Nia-Love-Your-Body Meetup Group!

A group of Triangle area-based (Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill) Nia instructors and their students, and those who want to learn more about the Nia practice and living happily in their bodies. Step into a Nia class and feel strengthened, flexible, relaxed, and more balanced, emotionally and physically. Nia is a low-impact mind-body fitness class which combines dance, martial arts and healing arts such as yoga. This class is easy on the joints and students are encouraged to move according to their body's way, so it is a wonderful workout for all ages. We host regular events which introduce Nia to new audiences and create opportunities to become part of the Triangle Nia community.
