(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 I am in a wonderful relationship since 2008.

No pro dance background, just always very active and love to move & love music; a lot of disco dancings in my youth, a couple of years of flamenco & sevillanas, some tango trials, 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 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 was happy. Maybe not a present kind of happy person, but nevertheless. A mind-kind of happy person, and that was not bad at all. Still, at the time, I was quite good at, and took pride in, forcing myself to train/move. As you know it too, the well known "no pain - no gain game". 
I did injure myself, over and over. This of course, didn't give the best of end training results...

Some 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 decided to become a a teacher, for the simple fact, just to be able to have as much as possible in my life of nia.


(Me & Nia T o d a y)

I and my body loves my "Nia life" of 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 I love to give this gift on, to others who also are in search for it!

All the joy and all the fun is here. 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 then.

Positive muscle memories are, bit by bit, being built up by joyful and 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. I WELCOME ANYBODY TO ALSO JUMP INTO THE WARM NIA POOL!


(My  N i a  B i o)

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

I produced the Tribal Workshop for Nia trainer Britta von Tagen, in Stockholm in August 2013, workshops and playshop with Ann Christiansen in Feb 2016 and June 2014, and Dance into being Workshop with Black Belt 1st degree Saffire Bouchelion in April 2015. 


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 a joyful, sweaty and fun piece of the puzzle, mine and yours.

With Love & Joy,




The  T e a c h e r  M e e t i n g s  (Livelihood Belts meetings):

* Livelihood Belts Meetings with the active Nia Stockholm area teachers and their guests (guest by invitation and for the purpose of being a or becoming a member). Ask for more information on where and when the next Livelihood Belt meetings are.


Some of Nia Stockholm's P a s t Events thoughts -->:

* In Nia Stockholm we arranges various jam dancing sessions with more teachers and many choreographies; amongst other a Womens Day Jam, a Nia HalloweenJam and a Nia's 30 years Jam. Sometimes we have given some of the surplus to organisations helping just arrived refugee children (through Läkare i Världen) or children with cancer (through Barncancerföreningarna i Stockholm)


Private teacher, class or group?

In October 2015, we had 40 nurses dancing a 2 hours workshop in Högbo bruk. In January 2016 around 20 gym trainers at Korpen Gävle....

Let me know if you are looking for a private Nia course for yourself or for a group. ​Looking for a Nia teacher for a company occasion? Contact me on
