Nia Testimonial: Jennifer, Nia Student
Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
I am a divorced mother of two, a birthed son and an adopted daughter. I am so proud of my kids. But I realized that when my life fell apart and I found myself single, what I needed most was "ME TIME." And I found that in various forms of exercise and dance. The one I have stuck with most however is Nia and I LOVE it!
Why do you practice and/or teach Nia?
Nia is the most FUN I have ever had while exercising. Nia teaches me something about myself and my body every class. No matter how many times I do a routine, I find something new in it. It makes it fun because of the personalization with free dance, etc. I also love the intensity levels and variance that can be done to meet the way I feel on a particular day, in a particular class.
Where and with whom do you take Nia classes and/or trainings?
I take Nia at a local community center with a fantastic teacher who I am willing to follow around the city / community to teach me more Nia. She has a great spirit about her that makes you take a class for body, mind, and spirit. :)
What is one thing most people don't know about Nia?
That it is a WORKOUT while you are having fun and it is to MUSIC so it is like dancing!
What tip can you give someone who is considering trying Nia for the first time?
You have to try it and I bet once you do, you will want to do it again and again.
