"Together we step barefoot into the first sequence. There are seven cycles to a Nia class; the focus and intention, stepping in, warming up, moving, warming down, cooling, stepping out."
"Nia was born of a philosophy that there is no need to use pain to change the body. Developed by Californian aerobic teachers Debbie Rosas and Carlos AyaRosas in 1983 it is now one of top three body-mind programmes in the world, taught in 30 countries and has been taught in New Zealand for about 27 years."
