I did check on their website and there are no classes near where I live.

I am going to order the book and also one of the DVD's.

Do have a good day and so glad you have the class to go to. Sounds like you really enjoy it.

There is a book written by the Rosas on Nia. I think I am going to get it to learn more of the basic steps and concepts. I think I am going to buy one of the videos offered by Nia.com. I love the way I feel after class. It is "weird" to work out for an hour but you just had fun. Freedom to move the way your body wants is wonderful.

I am not sure they have the Nia classes here but will check that out. It is a wonderful feeling - that feeling of freedom and feeling light. I think it all is related to how this dance makes you feel. I do what I can do and I love the free form aspect of it.

Keep on keeping on, Lola. Do let me know about the class. I am so jealous.

Dance like no one is looking....

Watched the video, loved it, and then watched another 20 minutes of NIA techniques and dances. I am going to Nia class tonight. I really look forward to going. I am learning to "dance" to any music. I am feeling the freedom. For the first time in my entire life, I am beginning to have times when my body "feels" light. (Amazing considering I still would like to lose another 70 to 75 pounds!)

Nice to meet you.

I saw the blurb in Prevention too! : ) Have you gone to nia.com? You can purchase videos there. My friend at work let me borrow her video and it was pretty fun.

Hi Lola - I am Sunny and new to this team. I just found Nia yesterday as a result of an article in my new Prevention Magazine. I went to You Tube.com and found several videos which I plan to use.

Nice to meet you and best wishes on your journey.

Anyone know of other sites or places to get more information on Nia and routines? I have been three times to Nia class and am finding that I think about it and am using the moves in some of my other workouts!
