WELCOME TO NESKAYA!

Designed to be a +Sacred space+

Our beautiful building was created as a “sacred space” to promote inner happiness, healthy social connections, and world peace through the practice of celebrating our differences.

By offering Circle Dances and movement disciplines that are also spiritual practices, we want to heal the divisions between soul and body, between people of different cultural backgrounds, and between human beings and the material body of our planet.

Circle Dance New Time 3:30 - 5:30 pm

CIRCLE DANCE

Traditional dances from around the world along with newly choreographed dances taught to a variety of world music. Dances range from fast & furious to slow & meditative. All dances are taught, no partner needed. Dance for relaxation, joy, growth, awareness & healing. Also known as the Sacred Circle Dance.

NIA

Nia is an exciting way to discover how to use your entire body to stay fit and healthy in truly enjoyable ways. It changes your body posture and teaches you how to move efficiently and safely. Nia works all your muscles thoroughly, and pumps your heart steadily. It gently opens your joints, and integrates your body-mind-wisdom. Nia uses three tools to stimulate, motivate, and create positive change: Music, Movement, and Magic.

YOGA

Through the practice of yoga one can quiet the chattering mind, gain health, and achieve inner peace. While performing yoga postures students aim to align the skeletal and muscular structures of the body to promote healthy function of all bodily systems.

BELLY DANCE

Discover the joy of belly dance in a welcoming, judgment-free environment! This class is suitable for all skill levels, whether you are an experienced dancer or are just taking your first steps. We will cover the basic movement vocabulary of this dance-art form, and then combine them as we “move and groove” to a selection of upbeat eastern music. We’ll also explore both choreography and improvisation. And most importantly, we’ll have fun! All are welcome to join. Please wear comfortable clothing and plan to leave your street shoes at the door. Hip scarves will be available to borrow or bring your own.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Neskaya leaves an impression

“This is a place of high consciousness, a hostel of sorts, a sacred gathering space where food, stories and life lessons are shared freely and often. Sacred in this community is serious as well as silly, sensuous as well as sexy. In this dance circle, there are no mistakes only variations!!!!”

Sarah

“The grounds and facility are just beautiful and inviting. The dorms were reminiscent of a bohemian slumber party (♡♡♡). What a beautiful place with energy that makes you vibrate!!!”

Lisa

“Peaceful, relaxing, and amazing. I was so relaxed, had the best time there, I can’t believe a place like that exists, we need a Neskaya around where I live. Anyone who visits it will feel blessed. I know I did.”
