Activities at the Barnet Tradepost

In 2008, we completed construction on the "Annex" to the Barnet Tradepost. The Tradepost Annex is a separate building located to the rear of the main Tradepost Building. The upper level of the Annex offers an inviting, spacious room overlooking the river valley that provides an ideal space for our classes and practices in Yoga, Tai Chi, Kyudo and Swordplay.

In early 2010, we introduced the BTWC "Extension", which is located immediately adjacent to the Barnet Tradepost. In addition to treatment rooms, the expansion offers additional space for Fine Arts classes and meetings.

with Cathy Smith, Certified NIA Instructor

Nia is neuromuscular integrated action, non-impact aerobic and in Swahili means "attention". Nia involves dancing with attention, awareness and presence in the here and now resulting in Joy!

Nia class uses very simple steps to great world music, adds some kicks, punches, knee lifts, lots of arms up, out and around, hip slides, ribcage rolls, shoulder shakes and stretches at closing. Nia is nonjudgemental, lubricates all the joints and is cardiovascular without impact. You move to great rhythms for an hour without stopping - YOUR body's way! Nia is great for anyone of any age and is fantastic for midlife and older women. It's hard to describe, totally fun and uplifting!

$10 per class
