Joy in Motion
NIA holistic movement practise
I’ve been to a few of Pingel‘s NIA classes & I can really recommend them. For me NIA is a mixture of guided movement & free movement, working with a part of the body to bring more fluidity & strength to the muscles of the body. It helps with coordination & is a gentle & strong workout. Pingel has great music & brings a real aliveness & vitality to her guidance of the class. It’s an overall fun experience, GO YOU’LL LOVE IT!!
Before I started my NIA classes with Pingel, I didn’t know what to expect. My friend had talked about this ‘new dance fitness, but I’m not the kind of person who goes to a gym. But when my friend asked if I wanted to join her, I surprisingly agreed. Well, NIA completely met my high expectations. I gained a great amount of knowledge about my body. This was the only type of class I wanted to participate in and it became a huge meditative moment for me. I think it was the combination of dance/meditation/mindfulness with taking control of your body and definitely the way Pingel taught it. Even when she moved to another space further downtown, I didn’t miss her classes. Both my friend and I were disappointed when she announced her move to Spain. Pingel is a great NIA teacher, so if you get the chance, try it. You will love it and be hooked forever.
