I found Nia in the gym. I kept noticing this tall, graceful woman heading in to teach, and became curious about what she taught. As is the case with many of us, after my first class I was hooked. I considered myself a former dancer; I trained for years in ballet and modern dance with every intention of dancing profesionally. I burned out in my late teens and didn't dance again for over a decade. In Nia I again found the pure joy of movement, the spark that made me dance in the first place.
My classes facilitate a full spectrum of movement: I invite you to step beyond percieved limitations while honoring your body's way of moving. I believe that a Nia practice provides both freedom and discipline, fitness and healing, power and grace. I value both humor and silence, funk and flow. Through movement we find health, community, and forge ourselves!
