Nia is a fitness and movement program drawing elements from martial arts, yoga, and dance. Developed in the early 1980s by Debbie and Carlos Rosas, Nia now claims teachers and practitioners around the world. The name "Nia", though not capitalized like an acronym, is actually derived from "Neuromuscular Integrative Action". It also means "with purpose" in Swahili.
