If you already take part in a sport such as yoga, Zumba or Pilates then you will be aware of the enormous benefits your discipline has for you and the contribution it makes to your physical and mental fitness.

Sport fans and experienced yogis can also often discover the supplementary facets which Nia can offer – lots of people who come to Nia classes also practice yoga or attend a Zumba class afterwards.

Lots of people who discover Nia at some point in their lives, going on to train as and become teachers, come from one of these areas and experience Nia as a further development; as a new path for the second half of their lives or as the perfect professionalization of their career as a trainer or therapist.
