Nia Blue Belt Teacher
Saint Clair Shores, Michigan, United States

When I first found Nia, I was critical, annoyed by happy people, and living entirely in my head.  Fighting with my body for years, with Bulimia Nervosa mixed with yo yo dieting, I felt hatred towards my body, blaming my body for being the only reason I wasn't living life successfully. 
Frozen in fear, I was using my body and my obsession with food as an avoidance from life all together, as avoidance of feeling my pain, as avoidance of feeling anything.

Even though I was taking classes with a room full of other students, my Nia practice always felt intimate and personal, that I had permission to move with whatever emotions that presented themselves and in so doing I discovered a deeper respect for all of them.  I felt that I didn't have to ignore, hide, or apologize for any of my emotions, that through dancing them, my emotions became pure creative energy that inspired the color and feeling of my movements which felt like a living body of art even when I danced with criticsm, frustration, anger or agitation.

My Nia practice continues to propel my evolvution as a woman.  Nia reminds me that whatever I'm feeling now, is just a moment in time that I can acknowledge and dance with.  Nia brought pleasure back into my life, especially in my relationship to my body and to food, in a way that is truly satisfying, that is no longer shameful or secretive.  I am able eat all of the foods I love and move in fulfilling ways through trusting my body's messages equally respecting the voices of pleasure and of pain.
