Notes About This Class
Suitable for seniors 55+ or anyone who is seeking a gentler style of Nia.
Dress comfortably to move. This is class follows the Nia 7-cycle format with an intention and focus.
Students will become familiar with the Nia technique by learning the 52 moves with emphasis on balance, flexibility, agility, mobility, stability and strength. The 52 moves condition the body's safety and comfort for integration into daily activities. Benefits include: increase in range of motion, heightened reflex response, more energy, core & muscle strength, and improved structural alignment.
Students are encouraged to use the floor for "floorplay," however chairs can be used as an option for "cool-down".
