Allison Wright

Nia Teacher Trainer
Portland, Oregon, United States

Like a true Leo, Nia Trainer Allison Wright brings a fiery and fun spirit to every class she teaches. Allison has a degree in holistic psychology, and also studied music and neuroscience. She worked at Harvard's Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine, presented at Ohio State University's Talbot Hall Addiction Medicine Clinic, and spent three years as an arts coordinator for an independent elementary school in Cambridge, MA. 

As Allison explains, "Nia wasn't a decision; it was a calling." Those who have trained with her know her as a comedic storyteller, talented musician, and original teacher. Allison shows you how to hear music with your whole body. Her fun yet relaxed approach to the Nia training experience invites you to awaken through sensing; to become more self-aware in body, mind, emotions and spirit as you dance through life. 

When she's not teaching classes and leading Nia trainings, you'll find Allison trekking through the Columbia River Gorge, writing in coffee shops, or at home, recycling and transforming coffee sleeves into magnificent artistic creatures for her art-education business, Accidental Art Project

Allison likes to collect jasmine green teas, ties, pumas (shoes, not wild cats) and countless books on eastern philosophy, neuroscience, and personal growth to keep the universe of her mind ever-expanding.
