The Classic Nia Workout

Posted by terrepruitt on May 13, 2010

This information is taken directly from The Nia Technique Book.  Usually I use my own words from my own experiences and from what others have shared with me, I thought this time I would share with you a portion directly from the book.  I am hoping that this information and the information that I have shared will interest you enough so that you will purchase the book for yourself.

Classic Nia is for everyone—from neophyte to dancer to athlete.

Classic Nia is a learning experience, with an emphasis on gaining new knowledge about your body and the best ways to move.

In Classic Nia, it is reasonable and acceptable not to expect perfection in your movements.

Classic Nia is noncompetitive, meaning you grow and change in your own time and in your own way.

Classic Nia teaches you to play, have fun and express yourself.

In Classic Nia teaches  you to play, to have fun, and express yourself.

In Classic Nia, you focus at least as much on your Body’s Way as you do on the Body’s Way.

This is information taken from pages 168 and 169 of the Nia Technique Book written by Debbie Rosas (presently Debbie Rosas Stewart)  and Carlos Rosas (presently Carlos AyaRosas).

Please let me know if you have any questions.  I love both questions and comments.
