Hiie Saumaa

Nia White Belt Teacher
New York, New York, United States

I love movement and stillness, dance and meditation. I have studied and teach various somatic and movement practices and the richness, diversity, and playfulness are the aspects that I most treasure about the Nia practice. As a part of my background is in music -- I studied the flute and instrumental conducting -- I appreciate the multi-dimensionality of music in Nia. My mission when teaching Nia is to create a space where participants find healing, joy, ease, and strength through movement and can be themselves and be whole. Next to Nia, I teach BodyLogos Active Meditation and JourneyDance. I offer classes and workshops in NYC and in Estonia, my home country. 

I study movement and somatic practices also in my scholarship -- I teach philosophy and literature at Columbia University and write about interconnections between mind-body techniques, meditative states, literature, and theories of consciousness. Movement is an incredibly rich area to study -- as a personal practice, as a classroom and community experience, and as a philosophy and approach to life.
