I have signed up for NIA classes beginning on monday and was wondering if anyone has been, or still goes for NIA classes?

Me, with two left feet -- so it should be a hoot for everyone else watching me.:H I would love to hear your opinion of it.

Watch Nia in Action | Nia (http://www.nianow.com/nia-in-action)

?Nia is movement-medicine for the body and soul.?

Nia simultaneously addresses the body, mind, emotions, and spirit, and puts them on the ?same page? using music, movement and personal expression to integrate one?s neurology (including the mind, emotions, and spirit) with one?s outer body, or musculature. To achieve this whole-being integration, Nia addresses the whole person using a comprehensive, holistic exercise approach designed with a combination of nine classic movement forms.

Nia Blends Nine Movement Forms
Martial Arts: T?ai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido
Dance Arts: Jazz Dance, Modern Dance, Duncan Dance
Healing Arts: Yoga, Alexander Technique, The Teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais

Nia teaches you how to physically interpret and internally direct your actions and choices, and to listen to the voice of your body and allow the body to be your guide in discovering Dynamic Ease. Practiced barefoot to music, Nia is self-guided, adaptable and safe for any fitness level, from stiff beginners to highly fit athletes. Delivering cardiovascular, whole-body conditioning, Nia is based on creating a loving relationship with the body and following The Body?s Way ? the innate intelligence of the body.
