NIA-HOLISTIC, HEALING, DANCE-BASED MOVEMENT
Classic NIA is a holistic fitness class combining movement from the dance arts, martial arts and healing arts, including yoga. Anyone can do NIA-it is appropriate for all levels of fitness and agility. Students are encouraged to modify all movements according to their own body’s needs. Movements are simple and leave lots of room for self-expression. Classic NIA is a fun, cardiovascular experience that gives you a new body and a new life.
NIA or Neuromuscular Integrative Action, is a sensory-based movement practice fusing nine different movement forms from the dance arts, martial arts and the healing arts including yoga. As a cardiovascular exercise, Nia builds flexibility, agility, mobility, strength and stability. It is effective for weight-loss and is known to help many conditions including depression, asthma, diabetes, arthritis and fibromyalgia to name a few. Bethamie balances the joy, excitement and fun of Nia with its calming, healing components and offers classes to women, men and teens of all abilities.
