My philosophy is the body is sacred.  My life purpose is rockin’ for The Holy.

I discovered Nia in 1995 when I was disabled with asthma.  Nia helped me heal by teaching me how to listen to my body and distinguish between healthy and unhealthy sensations in my lungs.  As a result of becoming body literate, I am now medication-free. 

I’ve been teaching Nia since 1999 and leading Nia White Belt trainings since 2011.  My new training,

I’ve been teaching Nia since 1999 and leading Nia White Belt trainings since 2011.  My new training, The Body’s Way: The Art of Nested Systems, co-created with Nia founder Debbie Rosas, is about sensing the sacredness of your anatomy and becoming a body literate. 

I love witnessing the transformation Nia brings to people’s bodies and lives and hope you’ll join me in Nia classes or a training soon.  Please feel free to email or call if you have any questions.
