Nia Is . . .

Posted by terrepruitt on February 6, 2010

Nia is a technique that starts with fitness and ends with comprehensive healing of the body, mind, spirit, and emotions.

Nia is to exercise what holistic medicine is to health care. It has many different components that help many different conditions such as asthma, depression, and pregnancy. Nia is movement as medicine.

Nia is an advanced form of fusion fitness—the combining of classic movement forms. It encompasses the martial arts. The healing arts (including yoga), and dance. The combination creates a synergy that no isolated technique can match.

Nia is a cardiovascular program that uses whole-body, expressive, grounded movement, rather than repetitive jogging or lifting.

Nia is adaptable to every level of fitness, every age and type of body, even those with special limitations.

Nia is a worldwide fitness movement with more than twenty six years of technical advancement.

Nia is a non intimidating way of appreciating your body—indeed yourself—in class, or in the privacy of your own home.

Nia is effective and fun.

Nia is the Body’s Way, a new way of being and living in your body.
