Nia Testimonial: Debra, Nia Student
San Antonio, Texas, United States
I'm just your typical 27 year old who was looking for something different in the fitness world; I wanted a practice that was not only physically satisfying, but also mentally satisfying. It's been over a year now that I've been practicing Nia, and the results have been incredible – I've lost 50 pounds and I'm making my way towards a more peaceful, calmer soul. I couldn't ask for anything better.
Why do you practice and/or teach Nia?
I practice Nia because it allows me to escape the daily grind and just be free. I literally get to be a kid again... dance, jump, skip, hop... my dance is endless.
Where and with whom do you take Nia classes and/or trainings?
I try to take class at least two times per week at the Synergy Studio in San Antonio, TX with Joanie. She rocks it every time!
What is one thing most people don't know about Nia?
Perhaps the one thing most people don't know about Nia is just how creative it allows you to be and feel. It's not your normal workout, it's your dance! You can go as far as your imagination allows you. It's your dance, your moves and your vision.
What tip can you give someone who is considering trying Nia for the first time?
Let all your hesitations go and get ready to play! It is, without a doubt, the best treat you will ever give yourself.
How has Nia helped you in your daily life?
Nia has made me feel not only younger, healthier, happier and more peaceful, but also closer to my God. I wake up every morning and inhale my first breath of peace, light, joy and love, and I thank the goodness above. It's a beautiful thing!
