NIA Technique Class Coming Up

The Nia Technique is a lifestyle and fitness practice that provides healing through pleasurable movement. Nia is an innovative fitness and well-being practice, based on mindfulness, the joy of movement, and East / West body-mind-spirit harmony techniques.

The Nia movement was created by fitness instructors Debbie and Carlos Rosas in 1983, and now, in its 25th anniversary year, is recognized and practiced world-wide as a friendly cardiovascular program. A philosophy of Nia is "Through movement we find health." Using unique and pleasurable movements, Nia leads you to strength, flexibility, self-esteem, insight, power, and self healing.

Together with a warm group of enthusiasts, our senior professional Nia instructor, Jane Markowitz, whose experience has been enriched by many years of ballet and yoga, will guide you to a healthy, more meaningful lifestyle.

You are invited for the introductory class on Thursday, November 6th at 7:30 pm in the Ecology of Health Community Centre, 885 Don Mills Road, Suite 121, Toronto, ON.
Call (416) 449 - 6747
Vitality Magazine: November 2008, pp. 118 - 119

About Jane Markowitz:

In 1995, she discovered Nia in the midst of a classroom teaching career, and “everything changed!!!” Now, 3 years post-retirement, she is Dancing Through Life as a Black Belt Practitioner. An instructor of both Kripalu Yoga and Nia, her growing second career continues to inspire and energize her; in leading students into The Body’s Way, her deepest pleasure is to watch their faces, bodies and lives transform into vibrancy and well-being. To Jane, it’s the most important work of her lifetime.
