Dancing is simply in my soul, and I just love to dance! I’ve experienced various dance forms including modern, ballet, folk, ethnic and ballroom dance throughout my life.  I discovered Nia in 1989 and at the same time, I also trained in and began to teach Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan with Dr. Tingsen Xu formerly of Shanghai.  I rediscovered Nia in 1997 when I moved to the Boulder/Longmont area and later received my White Belt with Carolyne Rideg.  I continued my Nia training with Debbie and Carlos Rosas, founders of the Nia technique and received my Black Belt in Nia in 2004.  I am also a Reiki Master Teacher, of the Usui Shiki Ryoho tradition.  Teaching comes naturally to me, I have been teaching Tai Chi for 20 years and teaching Nia for 8 years in health clubs, studios, and universities as classes and workshops.

My Ph.D. in Anatomy/Cell Biology comes with a concentration in Neuroscience.  I really wanted to understand how the body was constructed and learn how various treatments are designed to heal the physical body. Health for the physical body requires the input from the mind and emotions, that I learned from Nia.  My Reiki training taught me how Energy/Chi/Prana can be directed to provide nourishment and restore health to the entire system: body, mind, emotions and spirit.  Holographic Sound Healing adds dimensions of knowledge and experience.  Coming full circle, and bringing this work into the world is suppored by my Business degree.

Nia is an essential element of my personal practice, which is strengthened and enhanced through Reiki and T’ai Chi Ch’uan. It is through my Nia practice that I found an extraordinary Joy in Living.  Nia has guided me to my hearts path.  This is to dance with joy through life, and assist others to find the Joy of Living that comes with the integration of body, mind, spirit and emotions.
