“Do you love to dance? I do ! Although when I was a teenager, I was told I’d never be able to dance again, following surgery on both knees. Fast forward a few decades and my husband laughed and said ‘that’s not true!’. I railed against his confidence and then, encouraged by him, joined a gym where Nia was on offer. ‘What’s Nia?’ I asked. ‘I think you’ll love it’ I was told. And from the very first class I was hooked. Although at the time (2006) I felt unfit and uncoordinated.

“Since then, the fun and joy of Nia has brought so much change to my body and life. My family tells me they like me better when I do Nia. And through Nia trainings, education and practice, I’ve reached a level of health and fitness that I only dreamed of when I was younger.”

Hi, I’m Ann Boon, a Brisbane-based Nia teacher. I help people connect to the wisdom of their bodies to invite joy, ease and playfulness into their lives. If you’re looking for fitness, health, increased energy, flexibility, fun or simply to get moving again I can help you too! If it’s been a while, here are tips for how to start exercising again.

“The music is fabulous and the movements are simple. If you haven’t done Nia before it doesn’t matter. You’re welcome to come along anytime and give it a go. Nia classes are suitable for every ‘body’ and no experience is necessary.” Ann

What if it’s your first time?

If you’re new to Nia and want some reassurance or simply to understand more about whether you can do it (YES!), how to modify if you have a particular injiury or body quirk, or simply to touch base before coming to class, give me a call on 0437 392 424.

Expect to move your body and be prepared to experience some ‘new to you’ sensations. You are always invited to move in your own way and to take care of your body’s needs. Nia is natural-to-the-body movement and very kind on the joints. Take some deep breaths and trust that your body was designed to move even if it hasn’t done much for a while.

You can also simply come along to class. You’re welcome anytime. Bring a water bottle and wear clothes that are easy to move in. First time round, come a little early to meet me, have a chat, learn how to sign in and get familiarised with the space. I can’t wait to meet you!

Ann has completed the Nia White, Green, Blue and Brown Belt trainings and the Nia 5 Stages, Moving to Heal & Art of Teaching trainings and she is a member of the Nia 5 Stages Master Teaching Faculty.
