Body/Mind Connections through the Joy of Movement

Heal your body, strengthen your mind/body connections, with  dance, yoga, healing and martial arts combined. Sounds crazy? Read on!

I met Myrna about 2 and a half years ago when I walked into my first Nia class and she was the teacher. I didn’t know exactly what Nia was, however someone had told me it was fun. I had always had back pains and thought that the only exercise I could do was in water, but I decided to give Nia a try. I didn’t know then that it would help heal my body.

I introduced myself and Myrna said, “If you like to have a good time you are in the right place!”

Nia is an Amazing Dance Form

I soon learned that Nia is an amazing dance form that draws from the martial arts, the dance arts and the healing arts. Not only is it fun, but it is excellent for both the body and the mind.
