If you’ve read any of this blog, you probably know by now that Nia is one of my favorite things. What is Nia, you ask? That’s an excellent question that can really only be answered with the experience of doing it yourself. It’s part yoga, part martial arts, part healing arts, part dance. It is always pleasure in movement and 100% FUN!
Since arriving in Mannheim, I’ve been in email contact with a Nia instructor in the area, and when she invited me to do Nia tonight, there was nothing I could say except OF COURSE. After the adventure in Karlsruhe, getting picked up from a train station seemed too straightforward and sensible to pass up—and aside from that, it was just REALLY time to do some Nia.
The train transfers there and back went over without a hitch, and I arrived home feeling like a new person. That’s the greatest thing about Nia for me—the way it can refresh you on so many different levels. It doesn’t matter how much time passes between sessions—Nia always makes me feel whole again.
