Can I come to class on a drop-in basis?
Drop-in is available at £7.50 per class but you will need to contact me first to check availability.
What happens if I miss a class?
If you can’t make it I’m afraid there’s no refund, however you’ll find it easy to just join in as normal the next time you come. If I have to cancel a class for any reason, you’ll get a refund of £6 per class.
Do I need to be slim / look very fit / a certain size or shape to feel comfortable in a Nia class?
Absolutely not. Nia is all about the pleasure of movement not about looking a particular way. Nia training really stresses and celebrates the uniqueness of every body and every class I’ve been to has been a real mix of shapes, sizes and styles.
What should I wear to class?
The most important thing is to be comfortable s0 you will probably want to bring a bottle of water with you to rehydrate and wear something comfortable you can move easily in – I usually wear running leggings and a vest top; whatever you feel best in will be perfect. Nia is done barefoot so no trainers needed. That’s it!
