Here is my “Top 10” List of things you should know about Nia:
# 10: You’re going to sweat. Nia offers the ultimate pathway to fitness based on the pleasure principle: if it feels good, keep doing it! Who couldn’t use more pleasure in life? I grew up a star athlete. I crashed and burned as a collegiate athlete. After 2 major surgeries, it was through Nia that I reclaimed my health, my athleticism, power, grace and to living my life in that state of awareness called the Zone.
# 9: Your whole body gets conditioned. Nia utilizes 200/700 movement potential: moving your 200+ bones and 700+ muscles as they were designed up, down, and spiraling all around, opening and closing your joints targeting your base, core and upper extremities. Like yoga, it utilizes total body integration. Nia combined with yoga has done more for my flexibility and balance than yoga alone.
