Hi, I am happy to meet you here. I started taking Nia classes in 2006 in Northern Finland. I was amazed by the organic moves and a simple yet intelligent coreography that I was able to follow as a beginner. Above all, Nia connected me with the joy of movement. I took Nia teacher training in 2008.  

In my Nia classes you are invited to tune into your body's sensations and move in a joyful way. I am fascinated about the wisdom of the body and how we can access self-awareness and new choices in our lives through movement. Nia principles can help in everyday life to find centered calmness and ease.

My background is in mental health nursing and educational psychology. Through Nia's somatic education I found a way to connect mind, body and emotions. Nia has lead me to become Embodied Facilitator and MA in Dance Movement Psychotherapy that complement my practice. In my dissertation I researched embodied shame and how it can be transformed through embodied self-compassion. I have also done adapted movement trainings and taught Nia to people of all ages and to people with special needs.
