My name is Nancy Burke and I am a Nia Blue Belt and Wise Moves Instructor in New York City. I am also a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor Specializing in Seniors. I have furthered my education by working with Parkinson's, Dystonia and Cancer Patients.
I have a background in Modern Dance and found Nia in 2009. I was absolutely lovestruck the first time I tried it. The training process of the White, Green and Blue Belts have deepened my love and committment to the incredible healing power of Nia. The magic of the new Wise Moves Programs has reaffirmed to me the healing powers of Nia. As we bring the Magic of Nia to those in chairs, wheelchairs, walkers and beds I have had the privilege of witnessing cognitive and physical changes in even the most challenged bodies.Nia is truly a brilliant combination of creative dance, incredible healing power and empowering martial arts. Nia truly nourishes the body, mind and spirit.
I am currently teaching Classic Nia at Asphalt Green along with Cardio weights for Seniors and Spinning. I teach a Wise Moves Class at Dorot and a Zumba Gold Class at Council House. At the JCC I teach Fall Prevention and Parkinsons And have the honor of teaching for the amazing Caroline Kohles and Kevin Verecke. Its an honor to work with all of these wonderful people!
Our bodies are a beautiful wonder and no matter where we begin there is tremendous potential for healing in our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual being.
Looking forward to dancing with you!!!
Love and Light
