Nia Black Belt Teacher
Downers Grove, Illinois, United States

I began teaching fitness in 1992, discovered Nia in 1998 (trainer Stephaney Robinson was my first Nia teacher!) and took my White Belt in Hendersonville, NC with Denise Medved in 1999. I stepped into teaching Nia in 2003. I currently teach 4 classes a week and I can't wait to get to class!

August 2011 I stepped into the unknown and took my Black belt intensive. Fear into curiousity, frustration into fascination.

In October 2013 I stepped in the Feldenkrais Method training program. I will never look at or feel movement the same way ever again.

Nia-based work, website and blog: www.movementalchemy.com

For me, Nia is not just a fitness program, it is a personal practice that grounds and balances my mind, body, spirit and emotions. It is a professional practice that creates fitness and wellness through energetic awareness. Nia has helped me remain gentle and vulnerable in a world that does not value either. I practice to stay gentle, to stay vulnerable, and to stay strong. I teach, share, guide to stay flexible, agile, mobile and stable!  I am integrating Nia as a lifestyle practice and little by little I am uncovering my personal and professional strengths, gifts and path. Through Nia I reconnect with nature, the nature of the body and the world.
