Nia Testimonial: Kinga Brezina, Nia Teacher
BA in Hungarian, Certified Access Bars Instructor
I am a PR expert and in my "before-Nia" time, I worked for radio stations, PR agencies and two Hungarian state-owned companies. I loved my job, I really did. And then when I became pregnant with my second son, my body started to talk to me, saying things like, "Kinga, I want to dance." So I searched and found Nia. After my second Nia class I was sure that it was "The Thing" I want to do, and when I heard that Nia Trainer Helen Terry was coming to hold a White Belt Training here, in Budapest, there was no question that I would participate.
So, in 2010, I became a White Belt graduate and Nia teacher. I started to teach once a week while attending my regular Nia classes (held by Andi Hriczu and Angi Molnár). Then, suddenly, I had three classes... and then four. Since springtime, I have been teaching five classes a week!
All of us who teach, dance, and practice Nia can say that our lives have changed. I gave up my PR and dove deep into Nia. Holding the classes, having regular workshops, and hosting weekend retraets is fun, fun, fun and fun. I am deeply in love with my husband, who gave me his two helping hands (because of the evening classes, he is the one who does the holy "dinner-bath-bed" triangle with our boys).
Who knows what is coming next? I ask day by day, "How am I so lucky to hav found my path in this life?" And of course, I ask, "What else is possible?"
This Christmas was the first during which I spent as a real Nia teacher, and I can thank my students for it! They are the ones who "transformed" me into the "teacher-being" I am. Together we found joy, energy healing, fun, ease and community in Nia.
