Fitness Class Mixes Martial Arts, Dance, and Healing
Health Education Institute offers 10-week NIA class
Mix a little martial arts, dance, and healing arts, and the result is NIA – or neuromuscular integrative action.
Founded in San Francisco more than 20 years ago, the aerobic exercise incorporates various movements and music into a fun and dynamic cardiovascular workout. NIA promotes healthy joints and balance, and increases strength, flexibility, and circulation.
The Health Education Institute, a partnership between Northwestern Michigan College and Munson Medical Center, offers a 10-week NIA class Tuesdays, Jan. 17 - March 20. Classes are 5:30 - 6:30 pm in Munson Community Health Center’s Classroom D. Cost is $99.
The classes are a moderately paced mind and body workout with enough intensity to burn calories and exercise the heart. Participants should wear comfortable clothing for movement. Sessions are taught by Anna Wassa.
Pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, call NMC at (231) 995-1700.
Munson Community Health Center is located at 550 Munson Ave. in Traverse City.
