What sort of person is Susan Rees ?

I am 54.  Not originally of fitness background - its incredible I find myself teaching Nia at all. I am now a certified Nia Teacher, teaching for 3 years in Scotland.  Ever felt a clux at a class ?  Ever felt alienated from posing or extreme hard-pushing mentality.  Just want to feel fitter and enjoy it ? This is where I am,  and it would be a privilege if you would allow me to show you how Nia is different in that respect. I don't see myself at a 'fitness teacher' - I am a Nia Teacher - I only teach Nia - because it is the only thing I want to do!  I wanted more Nia and so I trained - simple as that.  It not my 'job', its not just another class I teach - its my passion - when I am not teaching Nia I am usually preparing, doing my personal Nia practice or listening to Nia music!  I now teach 5 classes a week in the triangle formed by Stirling, Dunblane and Perth - simply because I want more people who were turned off by the fitness "industry" obsession with hard-assed grim fitness to boom boom music - to experience the difference that is Nia.

Read my story here.

What is Nia ?  - a 35 year-old worldwide form of movement for fitness and health - adaptable for all kinds of personal goals, age and fitness levels.  Each Nia Teacher brings their own essence to the form inspired and informed by a worldwide and Scottish community of teachers and trainers.

Why have you never heard of Nia ? - it is not pushed as the next and only thing but rather has grown low-profile through, well really just people loving it.  Investment is instead in constant improvement and teacher training.

What is Special about it ?  - too much to tell you here - but 3 things are

*  its more than a fitness class - there is a community and dip in delights to follow outside the class to allow you to enrich & enhance your health and wellbeing in various ways

* the glorious music

* the delightful yet effective way we move (ideally barefoot, but shoes are an option)

Online classes using zoom have been a real challenge to set up - getting the music and mic right is not easy - believe me.

However from get-go I have been bowled over by your enthusiasm - and I found my own mojo.

I was amazed how good it felt - how close it came to our class experience and it was very good indeed to see your faces.

Thank you for all your lovely comments about how good the classes are - I am loving them too.

From the beginning of May I extended the programme beyond 1 or 2 classes a week to include innovative formats to make the most of the online world plus retaining our close community regular classes.

You can find out this weeks schedule and book in for a class here.

In my classes I especially emphasise that Nia is for all ages and abilities, sizes and shapes. For those that love to dance and for those with two left feet.  Nia is for any-body!
