(My  b i o g r a p h y)
Half Swedish and half Italian, living and working in Stockholm and in Gävle, Sweden. 
"When I count my blessings, I count you twice"; I'm in a wonderful relationship with my partner since 2008.
No pro background, just some disco gogo dancing in my youth, a couple of years of flamenco, some tango trials and a few years of kick boxing.
A massage therapist since 1990, today mostly giving classical massage to my friends & family.
Today when not giving or getting dance & movement therapy through Nia or spending time with my family, I'm also a professional whisky blender, working with my Swedish malt whiskies in my warehouse since more than 20 years. I get to create, to meet a lot of great people and to travel the world. 

(B e f o r e  & when I  m e t  Nia)
Looking back, it seems something in my life was missing before.
Yes, I was happy, but a not a present kind of happy person until I met nia. I was more mind-happy. Not like now, more complete body-mind-happy.
Quite good at forcing myself to train/move, I guess that also had to with me injuring myself quite often too.
This of course, didn't give the best of training results either.

Years ago, I went to a dance class in London, my great friend Cim had just become a nia teacher.
That class was love at first sight and I felt it immediately I just had to get more.

(Me & Nia T o d a y)
My body loves my "nia life" - as a result: it has started listen to me on a completely different level. I feel a warm and comfortable consciusness in my body today that I love and that I want to give to others too.

All the joy and all the fun is HERE. All the benefits are obvious, my body tells me so too. Nia dancing is now on my mind, soul and body's can't-live-without-list. Now I know what I didn't know back then... and my body knows it too. Positive muscle memories are bit by bit, being built up by my nia training. 

(My  c l a s s e s / w e e k  and  my Nia Stockholm c o m u n i t y )

I have now four Nia classes a week. I love creating events and I'm often taking initiative when possible within my comunity. For the moment I'm taking care of the Nia Stockholm's newsletters and info for the Stockholm teachers schedules.

The way I see it, there's a
 world of fab Nia classes, workshops and trainings at our feet, so why not use it? lots of serious body knowledge at hand, great dancing buddies all over the globe and a network that we, whenever we want and need, can to tap into. Indeed fantastic resources!


(My Nia  B i o)
I completed my White Belt training in London with London trainer Dorit Noble. My Green Belt training was completed with trainer Britta von Tagen. I've also done great The Body's Way and The 52 Moves Trainings, with amazingly skilled Nia co-founder Debbie Rosas and side-kicks/ trainers Rachael Reisch and Ann Christiansen.
I produced the first ever Tribal Workshop for Nia trainer Britta von Tagen, in Stockholm, in August the same year.
And when last year ended, it was with the magical Nia 5 Stages, with lovely trainer Laurie Bass in London. 
How can it get much better than that??? 

Finally. Here's my 2014 wish, for YOU...

Hey, have a great life and enjoy; in search for what that is for You and Your Body, at this and every coming moment...
Enjoy your greatest life you ever can do, and with as much joy as you can - while you can. 

And if you wish and our road happends to cross, I hope we'll meet on the nia dance floor.
Adding a joyful, sweaty and fun piece of the puzzle, mine and yours.

With love and joy,
