CEXTH 3404 Nia: Mind-Body Movement

This course teaches the theory, practice, and personal integration of Nia, a somatic movement approach. These approaches within psychology emphasize an understanding and practice of a more holistic sense of wellness and healing. Nia draws from nine disciplines within the martial arts, dance arts and healing arts, in the service of enhancing the practitioners' physical precision, expression and awareness of the body. Students' integration of the Nia philosophy and practice will be explored individually as well as demonstrated through applications to assist with the needs of specific populations.
