I first discovered the Nia Technique in 2008. To my delight I found myself leaving every dance class feeling better in my body than when I had arrived and that kept me coming back. I love that Nia’s number one principle is “Joy of Movement”. Nia however is so much more than dance, it is movement medicine. We move to feel, we move to heal.
In 2010 I completed the Nia white belt training and began teaching classes in 2011. I became a green belt certified teacher in 2012 and completed my blue belt training in 2013. I am a regular student and currently teach outdoor Nia classes in the spring and fall at Tower Grove Park in South St. Louis.
I love how Nia has helped me to condition my body on all levels. I cannot imagine not having Nia in my life.
