Nia is a heart-pumping, heart-warming journey into Joy! It is a technique that starts with fitness and ends with comprehensive healing of the body, mind, emotions and spirit. I stumbled upon Nia about 5 years ago and immediately knew that it was going to change my life. I danced as a child and have never lost that urge to move. I tried many different classes as an adult and none of them gave me what I was looking for. I went to an Expo and there it was, a group of ladies dancing on a stage beaming such joy. I just had to do it and do it now. I went to as many Nia classes as I could and when the opportunity was offered to become a Nia instructor, I jumped at the chance and changed my life. I now have the pleasure of being able to share this fabulous fitness fusion programe with people of all genders, ages, fitness levels and needs. It is my meditation, my medicine and my daily fix. Come step into your own joyful journey with Nia and positively change the way you feel, look, think and live.
