"In Nia our movements are always for the pleasure and confort of the body. We never strain or provoke pain in class. It's all about self-expression and moving in your own way."
Nia Teacher Maureen Small has her Nia class featured on French Television in a report by journalist Bérengère Bourgeot for France 3 Rhone- Alpes' regional edition. Bourgeot gives a short synopsis of the many benefits of Nia as a "new" fusion fitness that is growing in France.
