- The Hague
Esther has 20 years of experience in dance, such as modern, jazz-dance, showballet, classical ballet and freestyle. She also taught modern-jazzclasses. In 2007 she created a new form of movement and dance that incorporated body-awareness and internal guidance through music (being seduced by the music). With this concept she talked to the founder of a body, mind and spirit center named ‘Hands at Work’ in The Hague, to see and feel if there was a possibility to experiment with her new creation. The founders reaction was: ‘It sounds beautiful. It sounds like Nia!' In August 2007 she followed her intuition and without even trying a Nia class she signed in for her Nia White Belt training with Ann Christiansen in Hamburg, Germany. Esther is now a certified Brown Belt Nia teacher and teaches classes where- and whenever she is guided to teach. She taught in The Netherlands, The Caribien and The United States. Nia is also her life-style practise. She chooses to dance and move consciously through life, becoming more aware of everything within and around her.
Esther’s classes are: inspirational, stimulating, joyful, welcoming, healing, safe to Self-explore and express. It's a sensory adventure!
Esther: “For me Nia is all about celebrating being born in a body and being grateful for the opportunity my body gives me to experience all that life is and has to offer! Through dancing I experience joy and pleasure, I gain self-knowledge and information, I transform, I explore, I discover, I lurn, I create, I play, I heal, I feel, I grow..I AM! Dance brings me to my source, my essence!”
My focus: Now I Am!
My intent: Exploring the Magic of the Now-moment. Through embracing the Unknown I create the space for my Higher Self to guide me. So I can live, dance and share my True Self with the world.
“When you see Esther dance you see life-force energy expressing itself.”
