Christine Davis

Nia Brown Belt Teacher
Gloucester, England, United Kingdom

Karen, from the Barefoot Studios Cardiff, gave a very interesting talk about Nia and how the movements could be tuned to the individual. I suffocated a giggle as I thought it would have to be tuned so far out for me, the string would break! This is because I had a motorbike accident as a teenager which left me a bit of a wreck with two damaged discs at the base of my spine and two damaged vertebrae between my shoulders.

Karen invited us to try a few steps. I started moving, and to my amazement nothing hurt. In fact the way I moved my body felt wonderful, beautiful, and very emotional. From that moment, I knew I had to dance this Nia regularly. Unfortunately, there were no teachers within 70 miles of me - so Karen suggested I become a teacher. Me? A teacher? With my body? She had got to be kidding!

The rest, as they say, is history. I trained as a teacher and I am so much fitter and healthier now - in mind as well as body. I have the best job in the world, as each week someone comes to my Nia classes, maybe worried or stressed, in pain or angry and at the end of the hour they’re transformed - happy, calm and usually wearing a beaming smile. They don’t have to tell me how good they feel, I can see it.
