This new once-a-month gathering is a great introduction into Nia, a holistic mind-body wellness workout, and its community of instructors and students. We will have a one-hour outdoor class at the Great Meadow Amphitheater in the Briar Chapel community of Chapel Hill, followed by a potluck brunch.

Nia is a low-impact fitness class which combines dance, martial arts and healing arts such as yoga. Nia is easy on the joints and students are encouraged to move according to their body's way, so it is a wonderful workout for all ages from seniors to young adults 16+.
