What is Nia?
Nia tones your mind and tunes your body. Each workout brings mindfulness to your dance movement experience leaving you energized, mentally clear, and emotionally balanced.
Nia cardio-dance workouts combine 52 simple moves with dance arts, martial arts, and healing arts to get you fit in 60 minutes – body, mind, emotion, and spirit.
Nia is practiced barefoot (though you may wear supportive tennis shoes if desired), non-impact, and adaptable to individual needs and abilities.
Each class includes mindful movement guidance and somatic education; class cycles include warm-up, sustained non-impact aerobic conditioning, strength training, cool down and stretching. Nia Fitness classes are taught to music, including pop, electronica, jazz, Latin, New Age, Indian and hip hop.
Nia class is held on Thursday mornings at 8:15 am in our studio. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat for the floor work. Yoga mats are also available for purchase at Serenity.
To register for a class please call Serenity at 419-891-2181 to reserve your spot as we only take 10 students per class.
Deb Reis teaches Nia here at Serenity. She is an RN and certified Nia black belt teacher.
