The Gift of Nia in 2017 image

If one of your New Year's resolutions is to be good to yourself in 2017, then Nia is the gift for you. In a Nia class, you'll focus on the sensation of pleasure, body awareness and self-care to promote fitness.

We have a growing number of Nia students on Scotland Island. "What I really like about Nia is that it's not about performance, it's about moving in a way that feels good to your body and, you're in a non-judgemental space where people generously share their enthusiasm."

Nia brings an energy that's unique and different to any other fitness class; it combines dance arts, martial arts and yoga in a workout that blends music, movement, mindfulness, self-healing and balance.  Try your first class for free.
