For Nia feel free to wear any exercise or comfortable clothing that makes you feel good and free to move. Bring along a water bottle and a towel or yoga mat if you want one (not essential). Nia is designed to be practised barefoot. If there are physical reasons not to practise barefoot, soft sole shoes can be worn. Beginners are always welcome & please know that YES you can do it.  Contact me by phone or email if you have any questions, or simply come along to class. You’ll be very welcome.

A Classic Nia class is a sensory-based, cardio movement class to music that blends 52 moves with martial arts, dance arts, and healing arts – body, mind, emotion, and spirit. Open to all levels.
