Nia Brown Belt Teacher
Turku, Finland

Nia oli rakkautta ensiaskeleelta. Olen nyt tanssinut ja ohjannut kaikenikäisiä, - kokoisia ja -näköisiä jo yli kymmenen vuotta. Jokin tässä yhtälössä toimii, sillä sekä oppiminen ja ohjaaminen ovat edelleen ilontäyteisesti lähellä sydäntäni. Blogistani voit lukea Nia-kokemuksistani lisää. Tanssimisiin!

Nia var kärlek vid första stegen. Knappt hade jag kommit igång med min nya hobby, och så visste jag för kanske första gången i mitt liv vad jag på riktigt ville bli som stor: Nia-instruktör. Över tio år in på min hittills enkelriktade Nia-stig kan jag konstatera att min intuition hade rätt: det har varit bra, och det tycks bli bara bättre. Är ödmjuk och tacksam över alla jag redan fått dansa med längs åren, och ser framemot att beröra och beröras ännu långt framöver. På återdansande, härlis!

For me, Nia was love at first step. Within months I felt more at home with Nia than with anything ever before, and wrote "Now I know what I'm gonna be when I grow up: a Nia Instructor!" in my diary (no kidding). White Belt followed in June 2005, and I started teaching classes half a year later. 10 years further into the movement form, I feel better and healthier than ever before, and I continue to be moved by the gifts of Nia and the joy of sharing it with students of all shapes and ages.

As it happens, I stepped on my Nia path under the guidance of Ann Christiansen. Enjoying Ann's ways of teaching and level of increasing mastery, I have returned to train with her throughout the years. Wanting to share the Nia White Belt experience with my community, I have produced three White Belt trainings with Ann in Turku (in October 2008, February 2013 and June 2015).
In June 2016, we come together for the first Nia Blue Belt Training in Finland since 2008.
