I had no clue what ""Nia"" was. But I was desperate to find an exercise class that I would stick with. I tried a Nia class and couldn't believe what a fantastic and fun workout it was -- a combination of dance, yoga, and martial arts. The music varies from funky to world music to ethereal. And you get to choose the level of intensity that's right for you. I don't really think of Nia as an exercise class but as my fun time, my therapist , my time for me. I've been to lots of different exercise classes, and NiaSpace's Nia class is the best and most joyful workout I've ever had. As a ""regular"" in Nia classes, I lost ten pounds over three months, gained muscle tone, and feel great! If you enjoy listening and moving to music, you gotta try Nia.
Pros: Great workout, great music, nice folks, South Austin jewel
