By Nancy Dow | OregonLive.com :: May, 2012
"I'm a closet dancer. Nia is full-on play. It's a great workout and I'm pooped at the end."
Eric Johnson, a forensic and clinical psychologist with the Oregon Forensic Institute, is 58 years old and stands at 6 feet, 3 inches. Eighteen months ago, he was looking for something low-impact but aerobic to add to his workout, and began taking Nia. Now, Johnson takes two 75-minute Nia classes per week.
