NIA involves cardiovascular aerobic exercise. It combines some martial arts, some dance, and some healing arts (like yoga) for a whole mind/body workout that all ages and skill levels can enjoy.
Classes are choreographed and accompanied by music, and can be performed at the student’s own pace and comfort level.
Each class includes mindful movement guidance – warm-up, sustained non-impact aerobic conditioning, strength training, cool down and stretching.
