There are even some NIA classes being taught here in nursing homes. It's for everyone, and I agree about the emphasis on inner experience, not outer beauty!!!!

Aside from the fact that it's given me a fluidity of movement that I've never previously possessed, I think I most love the fact that it's so inclusive. I love that everyone can come, all ages, all conditions, and all sizes. While it's undoubtedly good for me, it's being part of an experience that can include anyone willing that I like most of all. I hate gyms and their sweaty, looks-oriented feel, so I think of Nia as being the counterpoint to that.

I agree with you about the spiritual experience. When everyone is in sync and letting the music move us, it's jut out of this world!

I love the energy of it--the music is awesome, my teachers are awesome, and when everyone gets into the groove of things, it's an almost spiritual experience! And on top of that, with the cool-down at the end, it brings my mind into focus and channels all my positive energy leaving me feeling happy, healthy and ready to take on the world!

Mine is how it mixes simple steps with amazing free dance. I've never been much of a "dancer", but I feel that way in NIA! And I sweat like crazy!!!!!
