Wanting to start your 2022 off right but not sure where to begin? Some of the most popular New Years resolutions include bettering health, trying something new, and getting involved in fitness. With this peaceful, gentle dance in Raglan, you can achieve all three of these resolutions with a sustainable routine. Read onwards to discover more about Nia Dance, where you can practice this technique, exciting New Years deals and offers, and the perfect class for you.

Dance and Fitness In A Way You’ve Never Experienced Before

When it comes to fitness-based New Years resolutions, it can be very difficult to maintain this routine for many people. Some of the largest reasons for not being able to sustain this lifestyle throughout the year are due to setting intense and unrealistic goals (i.e. losing 20 kgs in one month) and doing non-enjoyable fitness.

To have sustainable fitness goals, you have to enjoy what you’re doing. If you don’t enjoy going to the gym, you’re likely not going to stick out a year of attending but if you find what you like, such as yoga or dance, you can maintain a healthy lifestyle for a longer period because you’re having fun.

Nia Dance is a dance form that adapts movements and teachings from popular fitness styles, such as yoga, tai-chi and tae-kwon-do. Nia stands for Non-Impact Aerobics, meaning each of the 52 movements are easily adaptable for your body or restrictions (i.e. low mobility, injury, etc). And, no matter how you adapt the movements, you can still receive 100% of the health benefits that come along with Nia Dance. When it comes to setting goals within fitness, it’s important that your main aim is to be healthy. If you’re aiming for overall better bodily and mental health, then you’ll find yourself enjoying the process of your fitness/health journey.

Nia Dance provides benefits for the mind, body and soul, for all ages, genders, activity levels and body types. Some of these amazing benefits include higher quality organ function, increased cognition, better hand-eye coordination and balance, higher positive energy and happiness, lowered stress and depressive levels, stronger self-connection and spiritual bond, and much more!
