nia classes: Cardio Dance Class - On going - Nia - 10/15/10 10:43 AM
Nia is an exercise class that is a cardio dance.  (Well it is a lot more, but . . . .)
Is Nia like Zumba?  Zumba is done very fast to a specific type of music wearing shoes. 
Nia is done both fast and slow (high and low, up and down, in and out, and bascially all around --- using the design of the body) to a variety of music.  You can wear shoes, but we get intensity from movement and not jumping so it is non-impact, yet very aerobic.  In Nia it is all up to you.
I have been leading ON GOING Nia classes since February … (0 comments)

At times we might move slow focusing on movements centered around the body’s inner core, as in T’ai chi.  We might kick or punch as … (0 comments)
