NIA is one of my FAVORITE THINGS EVER.

Forget about courage. I was terrified of fitness classes when my boyfriend and I showed up for yoga and it was changed to NIA. Now, he looked like a drunk cheerleader, but I loved it. In my class it's primarily women of all levels. I just hung out in back for a few weeks until I was more comfortable with the routine. If your instructor is good, she will have a few different routines to change up weekly and the moves aren't that hard. Also, there are different levels of difficutly you can use. It really helped me regain my balance and strength in my ankle after I shattered it. It tends to focus on balance (emotional and physical). It amy sound strange, but I had a very traumatic experience at work (a hockey player collapsed and died while I was adminstering CPR), and it helped get me back on track emotionally as well.

Like all things, it's not for everyone, but give it a shot! You may really like it.

BTW, I can't dance, either.
