NEW: Northborough Studio to Bring New Fitness Art to Central Mass

Friday, January 25, 2013


Studio Joy's co-owners Jenny Silverberg and Amy Podolsky

Central Mass residents looking for a new way to stay fit for the new year can explore Nia, a non-impact physical conditioning program that has gained popularity in recent years, at Northborough's Studio Joy, which will offer classes and workshops and is hosting an open house on February 7 from 6-8 p.m. at the First Parish Unitarian Church Hall.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with Studio Joy's co-owners Jenny Silverberg of Westborough and Amy Podolsky of Sudbury, both of whom are Nia trained instructors, and to experience a free Nia class firsthand, which incorporates martial arts, the healing arts and dance arts in its practice. The studio has partnered with other local businesses to offer raffle prizes, and will host a similar friends and family event on Thursday, January 31.

“I have been practicing Nia for over seven years and I’m excited to be launching Studio Joy and bringing Nia to the area” said Silverberg, a Brown Belt Certified Nia Instructor and Nia 5 Stages Teacher, who holds a Master's Degree in Dance/Movement Therapy from Lesley University.

Her partner and co-owner, Amy Podolsky, is Green Belt Certified Nia Instructor, is a former television news producer/researcher, educator at Camp Sewataro in Sudbury and co-creator of Sewataro Sprouts.

Nia is adaptable to every level of fitness, every age and type of body, even those with special limitations, and Studio Joy offers a variety of classes and levels, workshops and education for continued growth.

Visit Studio Joy's website to register, learn more about the event, a complete class schedule and future listing of workshops and events.
