Many times a New-to-Nia student reports back to me that they had "so much fun!". Recent research indicates that how you perceive or categorize your daily movement habits (exercise/working out vs. fun/pleasure/hobby) can impact how you eat subsequent to that "workout".

Classes are held in various studios and locations in town and can be found on this Albuquerque Nia Site.
