    I'm really bummed out that I didn't take NIA classes when they had them at my local YMCA. I've heard they are great in getting you to have more body awareness.

    They are! Most of the classes have a strong focus on core strength, centering and grounding. I find the bast way to describe what it is, is a cross between yoga, lyrical dance and creative expression. It isn't really a set choreography for a class, there's always a component that makes each move individual to you. It could be anything from just arms while your feet are doing a simple, set pattern to a whole song for you to free dance.

    If you're interested in checking out a class, have a look here to see if there's one in your area.
