Monica Espinoza

Nia Blue Belt Teacher
Melbourne, VIC, Australia

I strongly believe in nourishing life with the “Art of Dance and Inner Wisdom”. That is inspiring my heart, body, mind and spirit in my personal journey.  Nia has brought life to my whole body, complementing my soul, spirit, mind and most of all I have found the gift of joy and pleasure in my body.

Every time I step into a Nia class I feel my whole self emerged with a nourished dance that heals within. A Nia class energises my entire being, creating a well balance and harmonious blend, sensing the present moment with awareness of my body (to release) of my mind (letting thoughts to ease or capture an insight) of my spirit (the connection of self with the universal beauty) giving me the greatest workout ever! Feeling the Joy of Movement and at the same time able to work out life issues through movement wow!

As a child I grew up in Peru, with the passion of dance and gymnastics that lead me to succeed as a young gymnast at National/State level, through ballet classes I become a Ballet coach for gymnasts. When my life took me to a different path and landed in Australia I worked many years in the Health Industry and the Catholic Community and worked in the Dance/Sports Industry. I completed my MBA with the means to pursued my dreams of having a wellbeing studio offering services in various dance modalities from Creative dance, expressive Ballet, Jazz, Acro-Dance, Contemporary, Latin Rhythms, ….but then in 2009 I experienced a dislocation of my spine discs under the care of a chiropractic session in which I was immobilised for nearly a year…what a tragic experienced in my life… and being told the uncertainty of not able to dance again…

The search began with pain….and suddenly Nia came to my eyes…so while meditating every night crying out to blossom once again…deep inside I felt that I have found a window of hope…it has giving me back the confidence of the joy of dancing, the strength and flexibility and the healing that my body needed to move again…

When I experienced that through movement there is a possibility of healing, I began to explore more the practice of Nia. Through the White Belt Intensive training I experienced an incredible uplift release from emotional to physical and mental outburst experience that lead to an incredible journey of healing for me… listening to my body (feelings, emotions), noticing (awareness) and choosing what is best for my body at my own pace was my key.

Nia tools brought laughter, joy of moment, body awareness and appreciation of self, as well as accepting personal limitations and discovering the endless possibility to nourish life through movement.  “Everything is possible …”

Come and share with me the various classes I offer some are gentle to suit your needs, other sessions are just more get moving, and creative either way you learn to go at your own pace, connecting to self and Feel Alive!…
