Sudbury Resident Opens New Fitness Center in Northborough

Partners bring the healthy art of Nia to town.

Sudbury Resident Opens New Fitness Center in Northborough

Studio Joy, as its website says, "offers a unique variety of classes and workshops based on the practice of Nia - a sensory-based movement practice that leads to health, wellness and fitness."

Co-founders Amy Podolsky of Sudbury and Jenny Silverberg brought the "studio" to First Unitarian Church for an open house on Thursday, Jan. 31, from 6-8 p.m.

More about Nia from Studio Joy's site: "Nia offers you cardiovascular whole-body conditioning, stress reduction, increased strength, flexibility and greater balance in a safe and natural way. Nia is about listening to your body, which brings about a better sense of awareness and mindfulness that among many other things, will respect the body."

Keep in mind that no experience is necessary, and Nia is done barefoot to a variety of music.
