Allison Wright

Nia Black Belt Teacher
Portland, Oregon, United States

Allison "Al" Wright is a Black Belt Nia Teacher, MELT Method Instructor, and specialist in adapting Nia For Kids. Like a true Leo, she brings a sense of deep heart and fiery spirit to every movement experience she facilitates. Al leads master classes, workshops, and ocean retreats around the globe that are designed to unite body, mind, emotions, and spirit through mindful movement.

Al holds a degree in Holistic Psychology from Lesley University and also studied jazz piano at Berklee College of Music. She has worked at Harvard's Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine, presented at Ohio State University's Talbot Hall Addiction Medicine Clinic, and has traveled across North America and the Middle East sharing the joy of movement.

Known for her passion for music, Al loves to teach people how to hear music with their whole body. Her classes blend conscious movement with athleticism, personalization, sound healing, self-expression, and playful creativity that will leave you sweaty and inspired–all the while inviting you to fall in love with sensation. 

Al is the co-creator of the 2012 Nia Routine, Touch, which she choreographed and filmed with co-trainer Vickie Saito for the Nia Technique.

When she's not teaching classes and leading workshops, you'll find Allison trekking through the Columbia River Gorge, writing in coffee shops, or at home, recycling and transforming coffee sleeves into magnificent artistic creatures for her online art-education business, Accidental Art Project
