What we're about

Nia is a mind/body fusion fitness practice. We dance in bare feet to great music combining the energies and movements of the dance arts, martial arts and healing arts. The movements are low or non impact, the classes are welcoming and open to all fitness levels. Nia is about finding pleasure in your body, tapping into the joy of movement while conditioning your entire body. Come dance and move with me at any of my Nia classes at Center for Performing Arts, 3754 Pleasant Ave., Minneapolis, MN.

I also teach at two other locations in the Twin Cities. My full schedule is at http://www.nianow.com/bethgiles

I invite you to try a Nia class! Through movement we find health.
