I haven't done that yet, although my class sometimes goes up it hasn't fit my schedule yet. I hope to do it soon!!! My teacher is going for her brown belt this year, so maybe there will be more trips!

I'm a psychologist and a client of mine was just raving about it. I went to one class about 3 years ago and liked it, but the place was hard to get to. So this summer, when there was a new place right on my bike path, I jumped at it!

I'm lucky. I'm in Oregon, about 100 miles south of the main NIA headquarters, so there are a lot of teachers here!

Hi there Peachy
I discovered it by fluke, really. I was managing a brand new health club, the group fitness division, and hiring a staff of instructors. This woman (a nia teacher) was recommended to me by the owners' lawyer. I took a sample class to check it and her out, and I fell in love with Nia immediately. (that was last May).
Although I am no longer with that health club, there is a center nearby that I am now working at that offers a lot of Nia (Yoga too, I occasionally will teach there, I am a yoga teacher). I feel lucky. Here's hoping that you can get to a live Nia class soon, maybe it will come to your town. Where are you? I am in MA.
love and light

I was just wondering how everybody found Nia. I found it though the blog of an author. Dianne Sylvan wrote a great book called *The Body Sacred* (among others). She lives in TX and talked on her blog about this amazing exercise class she'd discovered called Nia. There aren't any classes in my area, but I went online and got the Dvd, the book, and one of the older VHS videos. I'm loving it!
