The joy of moving your body Nia's way may be habit forming. If you are looking for an inspiring activity that will have you smiling wider and walking with more confidence, then Nia may be for you. Join Deborah Bramm and Carol Cram for free Nia classes on Sunday, September 15, at 9 a.m. and Tuesday, September 17, at 7:15 p.m. in the Bowen Island Youth Centre dance studio.
In a Nia class, you experience a holistic workout that connects body, mind, emotions, and spirit in a fitness practice that is powerful, yet light-hearted and fun. Nia is designed to be accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels. Set to exciting and inspiring music, low-impact aerobic Nia routines allow you to move comfortably, safely and efficiently. Movements are based on practices from the martial arts, dance arts, and healing arts to give you a full body workout. We use choreography as a guide, but you'll enjoy plenty of opportunities for creative self-expression. The resulting benefits include improved flexibility, agility, strength, stability and endurance. Nia also cultivates sensitivity and awareness, and supports an enhanced sense of overall well-being.
On Bowen Island, you can choose from three Nia classes a week. Classes on Tuesday evenings at 7:15 p.m. and Sunday mornings at 9 a.m. at the Bowen Island Youth Centre studio and are organized through the Bowen Island Community Recreation.
