"Joan's Nia class is too much fun ;>) We move every joint- big and small, short and tall, high and low, fast and slow, in and out, and round about! Left-ness and right-ness are of no import, a personal favorite. The music is cool. We have a ball. Do try it!"

"Working with Joan Turnberg as an executive "wellness coach" was definitely a fabulous experience! She was someone that I had to be honest with about setting realistic goals. She was very professional in organizing and orchestrating the sessions that we had together for optimal results. I set goals and with Joan's patient and thoughtful direction I realized these goals. It was an extremely satisfactory process, and one that proved highly motivational as well."
"I am so happy". I thought my husband was going to fall off the bed. I have not been able to say that truthfully about all aspects of my life in a long, long time. I feel good and am really beginning to get back my love of life, something that I thought I had lost. Isn't it amazing that eating right, exercise, having realistic limits and goals, and doing something special for myself can make me feel so great about life? It seems so simple now! Hindsight is 20/20.
Wellness Coaching gave me the opportunity to focus on ME for once. I had limits to set that I could only change myself, or be in charge of myself. I have always been a person who will try to engage others into my diet or exercise or schemes. Once, Joan said to me "Cassandra can only control what Cassandra does". I never realized I was trying to get others to help me in a way that sometimes would sabotage me and my goals. In focusing on myself, I am able now to set a good example for my family and others. I am not allowing them the opportunity to sabotage my health and fitness goals, because I am in charge of Cassandra. It sure does feel good. It feels good to finally lighten-up.
I am happy. I am healthy. I am physically fit. I am energetic. I am unstoppable!! Wellness Coaching is the best thing I have ever done for myself. Through realistic goals I have set with you, Joan, I have become a better woman, wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend and employee. Everyone should experience a Wellness Coach for themselves at least once in their lives.

Nia has done a terrific job improving my balance, energy and endurance. I was skeptical at first, thinking a once a week class would have a very limited impact on a middle-aged body. Nia actually has done a great job and more than I ever expected! While at a wedding, on my way down a crowded corridor, I tripped on a tablecloth that was dangling into the walkway. Wow, I went flying, BUT I caught myself, without falling, twisting or any other injury! I attribute this to my Nia workouts which include a segment on balance and strengthening. The workouts are always fun and challenging but can be easily modified to one’s ability and fitness. I'm hooked!

Joan and Nia offer a dynamic combination of joy, fun, great music and a good workout! Joan is a natural teacher, who communicates genuine enthusiasm and joy for Nia as she leads us through each session. I'm so grateful to have found Nia--it is the most fun I've had in an 'exercise class' ever! And, the music is great too!
Sara E., Lexington
"I love how I feel during class and afterwards. Nia has a GREAT calming effect on me, I find that I am very much 'in the moment' during class and fully enjoy the music and movement. I don't feel pressure to 'do each move right' rather I just move in the direction my body takes me and that's ok! I leave class feeling very relaxed and calm. Joan loves Nia and it really shows in her teaching – she always explains the different levels of a particular movement and encourages everyone to do what they feel comfortable with, she has great energy and a passion for what she does, and it really sets the tone for each class. It really doesn't matter your age or past experience or expertise with fitness/exercise, Nia truly welcomes everyone!"
Kelly Biedermann, Billerica
"Nia provides a space for the soul to dance, and that's why I love it."
Jessica Bethoney, Lexington
"Joan's Nia class has been wonderfully effective in giving me relief from the chronic stiffness and muscular pain of fibromyalgia. By the end of a session, every muscle in my body has been stretched, soothed, and relaxed. No spoonful of sugar required, either – interesting routines and intriguing music make Nia a pleasure. I always look forward to Nia Day!"
"Balance and flexibility, stretching, soothing, relaxed. In a word, wonderful"
Lea Ann Knight, Financial Advisor, Bedford
"She has a wonderfully gentle presence and a fine sense of exactly what you need."
Stephanie Muller, Lexington
"Using a computer all day gives me a stiff back. Joan's massage gave me the relief I needed."
Teddy O'Connell, Billerica
"Joan is always able to create an environment that is comfortable, and cleansing. She allows for the mind to release its stress through the breathing exercises before she begins the massage. For me the massage is about the place that I go to ...I become one with myself again. I can really tell you it works."
"Joan showed me the research and taught me about the negative effects of trans fats, artificial flavorings, colorings, and artificial sweeteners have on the body. It was clear to me that I had to make some changes."
Paula Salvucci, Director / Owner, Inch By Inch Child Development Center, Bedford
"Coaching is very powerful. Together we took steps to improve the health of my body, mind, and spirit."
Kim Hodder, Bedford
"Wellness Coaching was an extremely positive experience. I feel great about the goals I accomplished, including being more aware of the quality of food I put into my mouth. Setting, discussing, and being accountable for my goals was key."
Adrienne O'Neil, Billerica, MA
