My life changed when I stepped into my first NIA class in 2009. Anxiety, depression and disconnection
decreased. Pleasure, energy, connection increased. I knew in that first class that I wanted to teach NIA,
to bring that delicious movement and music to others. I began sharing the joy of NIA in 2010 and have
had the honor and privilege to teach in fitness centers, mental health facilities, yoga and dance studios,
houses, hallways and backyards.
While working as a mental health therapist, I have observed that people thrive when they have creative
outlets and ways to connect to their bodies in a world that encourages disconnection. My classes offer
an opportunity for both, with evocative music and conscious, grounding movement. It is my greatest
pleasure in life to share music and cathartic, freeing movement with people.
In addition to being a blue belt NIA instructor, I am also a Certified Ageless Grace Educator. Movement
practices have the ability to heal ailments of various shades and depths, so join me on the dance floor
and feel better in your body and better in your life.
Nia Dance (Beginners Welcome)
Sundays from 11:30 to 12:30 pm
Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, jazz dance,
modern dance, Duncan dance, yoga, Alexander Technique and Teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais. Every
class offers a unique combination of 52 moves that correspond with the main areas of the body: the
base, the core and the upper extremities. Stiff beginners and highly fit athletes alike can adapt Nia to
meet their needs by choosing from three intensity levels. Step into your own joyful journey with Nia,
and positively shape the way you feel, look, think and live.
