The Practice of Nia or What is Nia? by White Belt Teacher Linda Wilkes

Combining dance, martial arts and mindfulness, Nia tones your body while transforming your mind. More than just a workout, Nia is a holistic fitness practice addressing each aspect of your life – body, mind and soul.
We believe every person can discover, explore, unleash, and enhance their individual potential to live a healthy and meaningful life by engaging their senses and listening to their bodies.
Nia is based on the intelligent design of the body. Each workout brings mindfulness to your dance movement experience leaving you energized, mentally clear, and emotionally balanced.
Nia cardio-dance workouts combine 52 simple moves with dance arts, martial arts, and healing arts to get you fit in 60 minutes – body, mind, emotion, and spirit.
Nia is non-impact, practiced barefoot, and adaptable to individual needs and abilities. Nia classes are taught by licensed Nia teachers.
Want to try Nia for free?  Seniors can come to a free class every Monday at 1 pm at the Rose Baker Senior Center in Gloucester.

 Join me tomorrow and try out this practice as we dance to the classic routine, AWAKE! All about how our spine moves.  Here are a few links to some of the music in the routine.
Hope to see you and your spine in a class sometime soon!
