Already practice a particular sport, exercise or movement form? 


Nia makes for an excellent cross-training complement. Check out these comparisons to see how Nia can benefit your current programme.

You’ll see here what additional benefits Nia offers – perhaps something you’ve been missing in your current practice; whatever you’re looking for, you’ll get some insight here into whether Nia is a good fit. Also, beginners looking for a class and wondering whether they should take up Yoga or Nia for example, can get an idea here of which one suits them better.

If you already take part in something like Yoga, Zumba or Pilates then you’ll be aware of the enormous benefits your discipline offers you and the contribution it makes to your physical and mental health and fitness. Sport and exercise fans and experienced Yogis often discover the extra facets Nia can offer. Many people attend Nia classes in addition to yoga, and some even follow their Nia class with Zumba, for example. With its holistic approach, Nia is an excellent complement to these disciplines as part of a balanced cross-training approach.

Even if you are totally immersed in your current discipline – if you are a trained dancer, a dedicated Yoga or Pilates practitioner or teacher, or if you work in physiotherapy – you will discover new, supplementary aspects in Nia that help you to develop at a personal or athletic level. Many of the people who discover Nia and go on to become teachers have a background in these areas and experience Nia as a further development on their path: as a complement to their career as a teacher or therapist, or sometimes, as a new path for the second half of their lives.
