About Nia

Fun, accessible dance class for body, mind, emotions and spirit!


Part dance, part martial arts, part self-healing, Nia is a dance workout you can really fall in love with. Beautiful music, fun movements, inspiring imagery, and mind-body bliss put your body on an upward spiral of wellness. Nia builds the “Five Sensations of Fitness” in your body: Flexibility, Agility, Mobility, Stability, and Strength. Nia has choreography, but it’s personalizable, so YOU can do it, in YOUR body, today. Side effects may include feelings of euphoria that last long after class, and an improved social life. The Nia community is filled with great people – including potentially you!

Paula’s Nia classes were recently named by Lessons.com as one of the best dance fitness classes in LA!

More about Nia

About Paula Chambers

Inspiring, passionate Nia teacher


Hi, I’m Paula and my mission is to share Nia with as many people as possible because it’s just SO wonderful. Students say my teaching is joyous, funny, imaginative and compassionate. I love watching students find the Joy of Movement in my classes. Then when they keep coming back, I love watching how Nia uplifts their lives!

As a First Degree Black Belt teacher, I have taken all of the Nia trainings that exist, plowing each piece of education directly into my teaching. I also produce Nia teachers trainings, and have guest taught nationally and internationally.
