Rachel Zimmerman about Nia in "Shake It Up: Nia, A Fusion Of Dance, Kicks And Spirit-Stirring":
".... In the end, Nia is neither pure dance nor pure rote exercise class. It’s more of a lovely tasting menu of moves served up to make you feel better in your body. I asked another friend, who had never heard of Nia until she took her first class and is now hooked, to describe her experience. Here’s what she wrote:
I was immediately taken by the music and the movements—there is fluidity and a gracefulness that I aspired to and wanted to be a part of. I was never a dancer, but Nia makes me feel like one. I’ve only been doing Nia for 5 months and can remember the first few classes when I felt stiff and awkward until half-way through the class. Now I loosen up pretty quickly. It is also a very liberating exercise class —- not so focused on right or wrong, but just do it.
Compared to step aerobics which I did in my twenties, Nia is less about someone shouting out footwork to you and taking your pulse every 10 minutes and more about “make it your own” and “feel the music” and “let the spirit move you.” NIA feels so right for my body. It doesn’t strain or stress your joints, but stretches and strengthens every part of you.
It is an empowering exercise and encourages you both to vocalize (as in karate) and to be at peace with oneself (as in yoga) and to dance. The choreography of NIA forces you to stay “in the moment” and there is a certain joy of mastery when you learn the steps. It’s the perfect exercise in that it gets you moving in a body friendly way — one that you could do into old age."


Dies ist eine Gruppe für alle, die eine Alternative zum Fitnessstudio suchen. Nia passt zu jedem, unabhängig von Alter, körperlicher Kondition und Körperform. Nia ist getanzte Lebensfreude! Es explodiert wie Tae Kwon Do ... es groovt wie Jazzdance... es fließt wie Tai zentriert wie Yoga. Schuhe ausziehen, inspirierende Musik... und dann geht es los! Ich freue mich, mit euch Nia zu tanzen in der
