Nia Brown Belt Teacher
Sundbyberg, Stockholms län, Sweden


When Nia came into my life, it created a direct link to my own happiness, finding my home in my own body together with mind, emotions & spirit. Moving with nia has given me lots... opportunity to ground and heal, great fitness, great enjoyment and training without boredom, lots of dance and an everyday awareness that I love. As an inspired Nia Brown Belt teacher, I'm very excited to be sharing this all with my community.

Below is the quick access to my "Quick Info 2017", with my classes & events held in Stockholm city and in the town of Gävle, Sweden. 
Below that, read more about me and the Nia Stockholm community.

(My  b i o g r a p h y)

Half Swedish and half Italian, born, living and working in Stockholm + in Gävle, Sweden. 

"When I count my blessings, I count you twice"; yes, I'm a happy wife, and in a wonderful relationship since 2008.

No pro dance background, just always very active and love to move & to music; a lot of disco dancings in my youth, a couple of years of flamenco, some tango trials plus a few years of kick boxing. Pingpong, basket, football... A massage therapist since 1990; today mostly giving classical Swedish massage to my friends & family.

Today daytime, I'm a professional whisky blender, working with my Swedish malt whiskies in my warehouses in Gästrikland/Gävle. Working with whisky for nearly 25 years, I get to create, to meet a lot of great people, and to travel the world. I love my life and I really love the diversity of it.


(B e f o r e  & when I  m e t  Nia)

Looking back now, I can certainly see something was truly missing in my life. I can now see the connection to my body was.. only partly there.

At the time, I was quite good at and took pride in getting (forcing) myself to train/move. As we all know it, I played the "no pain - no gain"- game. 
I did injure myself, over and over. So in the end, this didn't give the best of end training results...

Years ago, I went to a dance class in London, my great friend Cim had just become a nia teacher.

That class was LOVE at FIRST SIGHT, and I just KNEW immediately I HAD TO GET MORE from where that came from! I did the white belt and after that, decided to become a a teacher, for the simple fact, to be able to have nia as much as possible in my life. Felt like it was a life saver...


(Me & Nia T o d a y)

All me and my body loves my "Nia life" now - and as a result it has started listen to me on a completely different level. Today I feel a warm and comfortable consciusness in my body, and can read it (and other bodies) on a new level. And I love to give this gift on, to others who also are in search for this connwction! Even when my body has its my problems (I have some bad discs in my back)- I can take care of it and move on- and still be teacher.

All the joy and fun. Nia is a unique funcional fitness form: creating a fit body, while having the greatest of times, dancing & moving. 
All benefits are obvious and my body tells me so, too. Nia is on my can't-live-without-it-list. My body has learned what it didn't know.

Positive muscle memories are, bit by bit, being built up by joyful, effective training.


(My  weekly  c l a s s e s   and  my Nia Stockholm c o m u n i t y )

Most of the time, I have up to four Nia classes a week. I love creating events and I am often taking initiatives when possible within my comunity. For the moment I'm taking care of Nia Stockholm's general information and the Stockholm teachers schedules.

There's a whole world of fab Nia classes, workshops and trainings out there, at our feet. Lots of serious body knowledge at hand, great dancing buddies all over the globe, and a network that we, whenever we want and need, can to tap into. Indeed some resources.


(My  N i a  B i o)

My Brown and Blue Belt was done with trainer* Helen Terry. My Green Belt teaching training was completed with trainer Britta von Tagen and a recent retake with trainer Ann Christiansen. I completed my basic White Belt in London with trainer Dorit Noble. The Body's Way and The 52 Moves/IT Training with trainer and Nia co-founder Debbie Rosas, trainer Rachael Reisch and Ann Christiansen. The healing Nia 5 Stages with trainer Laurie Bass. 

I have produced the Magical 7 workshop with trainer Helen Terry in 2016, the Sword dancing/Dragonfly/Creative Movements for Kids in 2016, and the Tribal Workshop for trainer Britta von Tagen in 2013. Workshops and playshops with trainer Ann Christiansen in 2016 and 2014, and the Dance into being Workshop with Black Belt 1st degree Saffire Bouchelion in 2015. 

*All Trainers are Nia Faculty Trainers.


Here's my wish for YOU...

Have a great life and enjoy; in search for what that is for You and Your Body, at this and every coming moment...
Enjoy your greatest life you ever can do, and with as much joy as you can - while you can. 

And if your wish and our road happends to cross, I hope we'll meet on the nia dance floor.
 Adding an experience of joyful, sweaty and fun piece of the puzzle, mine and yours.

With Love & Joy,
