Thanks Sunny and Bellydancer, for the warm welcomes!
Bellydancer, when I order more stuff, I will go to your url. Thanks for the info. I had a gift certificate at Amazon so I ordered the book and DVD (Global) from them, but I like having a source where I can get questions answered so I'll look you up.
Sunny, I first tried the you tube videos, but my computer is in our little office with no room to really move and I felt like I needed more space for NIA, and I would like a workout where I kept going for 60 minutes. The you tube videos there are good though, and watching them I knew I would love NIA. Thanks for the link -- I will try it while I am waiting for my order from Amazon.
Glad to find some knowledgeable people about NIA. I will probably be asking questions!

Hi Anne - I am Sunny and also love Nia however we do not have anyone teaching Nia around here so dance to videos I find on the net. I love it as it is so fluid and to me, a very spiritual dance form.

Congratulations on your green belt, Bellydancer!! Woohoo and good for you!

Nice to meet you Anne. This is one of my favorite videos that I dance along with.

Hi Anne!
Welcome to our group! Nia is an amazing mind-body workout! It really is exercise for everyBODY! I have been teaching Nia for over a year and I am continuing to learn more and more. I have my White Belt and will be getting my Green Belt at the end of March! I am excited and can't wait to dive deeper into the wonderful world of Nia. You should consider signing up to do a White Belt workshop! You may or may not want to teach, but it is an amazing experience!! If you would like to order more things from the Nia website and get a 40% discount on your purchase, you can go to my url which is:

If you are looking for DVDs, I would suggest the routines Opal and Global Unity (I think they are the best)! The clothes are really nice too and the music as well!
If you ever have any questions, just send a message!! Welcome again and good luck on your quest for better health!! We are all here for you!

I just saw a reference to nia on another thread and did some looking at their website. Wow -- it looks like the perfect form of exercise for me. I love to dance and have done a little bit of yoga and pilates. Haven't done any martial arts except what is on ExerBeat. I like the idea of combination of structure and free form. I ordered the introductory DVD and the book and am really looking forward to this! I tried to find a class, but the nearest one to me is 700 miles away!
