BridgeWay Youth Shelter brought some wonderful young people to our regular 10am Nia class. We hope this is the first of many of these opportunities. Special Thanks to Woodlands Black Belt Nia Teacher Peggy Renfroe for being the connector and supporter of this adventure.
One of the great things about Nia is how it can be adapted for special groups and populations.
Sometimes Nia will be taught as a special class for the group and other times (like this) it is possible to integrate the group with a regular class. We had a new lady in class, some local teachers, regular attendees and our special guests. Everyone expressed what an exceptional experience they had, the joy in the room was captivating. Even Phelps and Belle watched joyfully at the door!
