Erin Curran

Nia Class with Erin Curren

Jewish Community Alliance
1342 Congress St., Portland

Wednesdays, 12:15-1:00 PM

Join Nia Black Belt Teacher, Erin Curren, for joyful fitness following the design of the body. Non-impact, expressive, fun, and healing, Nia ("nee-ah") is the original fusion fitness class and first came on the scene in 1983. Nia blends the power and precision of the martial arts with the expressiveness of dance and the mindfulness of the healing arts. It provides a cardio workout while being easy on the joints and enlivening for the whole person, body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Classes are equally suitable for self-described couch potatoes and highly fit athletes as Nia is a practice that can be adapted through conscious movement choices for greater or lesser intensity.
