susan sloane b wkaryn cordoso2017Learn why Nia is a lifestyle practice that has a vitalising impact on your nervous system and strengthens your ability to sustain body-centred awareness under all circumstances. Feel how every cell in your body can vibrate in joy and how you are connected to everything that surrounds you. It is much more than a cardio dance fitness class.
