NIA Dance Classes - Tavoos Garden



The Nia Technique is a sensory-based movement practice that draws upon elements of dance, martial arts and therapeutic practices such as yoga.

Practiced barefoot to music of all genres, Nia blends simple choreography, fast and slow movements, free movement, sounding and floorplay to create a practice which conditions the body, mind and emotions.

Since Nia teaches people to access and be guided by SENSATION, it heightens body awareness. People learn to move and condition in their body’s unique way, always following pleasure rather than pain, thus making Nia completely safe and adaptable to people of all ages, fitness levels and abilities.

NIA Teacher

Debbie-Lee van Ginkel (from South Africa) is passionate about movement and its role in self-healing, and is dedicated to educating and empowering people to take charge of their own holistic and sustainable fitness. She first discovered Nia in a rehabilitation and addiction centre, where she was being treated for anorexia nervosa and exercise addiction. After years of waging a war with her body, she found pleasure, joy and self-healing in the practice of Nia, and fell in love with the practice in the first class. Soon after, she took her White Belt Nia training in Cape Town in 2008 to become a certified Nia instructor and has  been teaching regular Nia classes in Beijing (where she was living as an expatriate) ever since. She has also presented workshops and seminars on Nia in various settings, including corporations, schools and drug rehabs . As an international school teacher, she incorporates her knowledge and expertise in holitsic movement into her teaching of children.

Debbie leads regular classes, workshops and retreats in China, South Africa, and now Siem Reap, where she currently resides.
