Elisa Risquez

Nia First Degree Black Belt Teacher
Winchester, England, United Kingdom

Objectively, Nia is a dance-based barefoot fitness practice that draws from the power and precision of martial arts, with delicious, conscious movement that allows for making good choices and living in pleasure.

And for me, Nia has brought me back to feeling love and gratitude for my body and my life, after many years of feeling dissatisfied with my body shape, and with how I used to feel tired just by doing simple physical tasks. Since first stepping into a Nia class 10 years ago with my inner critic working full time, I have been in love with my body, working out and working in with the Nia Technique.

My body and my mind now feel in harmony, (most of the time, I'm still a work in progress) and my emotions and spirit thrive with the body of work I'm proud to share. I aim to spread my joy and life-gratitude with my students, to go beyond self-imposed limitations, and to offer education that is fun and inspiring. 

I offer classes, workshops and events around Europe and I have a knack for making people feel welcome and at ease. My lack of dancing or fitness background I used to consider a disadvantage; now I know it gives me the superpower of empathy, modelling the huge transformation that getting in touch with the body through Nia classes can bring. Never in my wildest dreams I could image feeling so fit for life and acquiring all this knowledge about biomechanics and the body that now I use in my Nia work. EveryBody is welcome, everyBody is capable, strong, and beautiful.

When we step in together, we step into our greatness. See you in class!
