Nia is the original barefoot, joy, workout offering several benefits such as increased confidence, enhanced vitality, mental clarity, emotional release, improved heart health, and elevated mood. It encourages a holistic, and balanced lifestyle that contributes towards lowering the risk of cancer and is also known to reduce stress and anxiety, increase strength, mobility, and flexibility as well as reduce pain.
Research shows that for most people exercise is safe and helpful before, during, and after cancer treatment. It can help improve your quality of life as well as the energy you have to do the things you like. Physical activity may also help you cope with the side effects of treatment and possibly decrease your risk of new cancers in the future.
