Catherine Perreau Ehret

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.

Dreamer. Creator. Builder.  Nia Local to Global and Movement Alchemy, Facebook pages, classes, labs, workshops and...

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:

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.

Dancer. Student. Teacher. Writer. Artist. White, Blue, Green and Brown and Black. Mother. Daughter. Friend. Lover. Warrior. Pioneer. In any given moment I can be formidable, gentle, strong, soft, intense, sentimental, fierce... In the next...
