Holly Nastasi

Nia Teacher Trainer
College Station, Texas, United States

 


Holly Nastasi began teaching group fitness in 1983. She has followed a path from Jane Fonda-style aerobics to Nia body and life education that includes weight training, running, step aerobics, interval classes, personal training, personal growth, program development, community development, facility operations, marketing, finances, and education. Following her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from UT Austin, Holly completed her first level of Nia training, White Belt, while working towards her Master of Education degree in health promotion at UT Austin. Her professional career began as a program coordinator for the Wellness Program for the Recreation Department at UT Austin. Soon after, she launched her own business by opening one of a first of its kind, a mind/body studio, called NiaSpace, in Austin, TX. There she successfully developed a vibrant community of Nia teachers and dancers that thrived together. Holly achieved her Black Belt status in Nia during that time and began offering the Body and Life education for Nia teachers and students, White Belt, The Art of Sensation. The White Belt is the entry level training to become certified in the program and licensed to teach. These trainings are open to both teachers and students alike. No experience is necessary.
Holly’s passion for Nia led her to Santa Fe, NM, where she repeated her success in Austin by helping establish Studio Nia Santa Fe with good friend and colleague, Jan Pitlak. Holly’s vision of a spacious, welcoming, collaborative Nia dance studio that specialized in the delivery of Nia in all its formats, bringing health, fitness and joy to thousands of people, lives still, years after Holly moved away to Lincoln, NE. Studio Nia Santa Fe has become the premier Nia Studio worldwide, offering over 40 Nia classes a week led by highly skilled, experienced, soulful Nia teachers. Studio Nia Santa Fe continues also as an educational center for Nia, developing Nia teachers from around the world through the Nia Body and Life Education program, an original intent of Holly’s.


Lincoln, NE is the third Nia community developed by Holly. Arriving in 2011, Holly began building the Nia program by establishing classes at fitness centers, dance studios, 55+ communities, universities, and elder care centers. As a Nia trainer, Holly certified and licensed a team of Lincoln Nia teachers who are also teaching in these and other settings. Nia continues to develop there to this day.

Holly has re-located once again to College Station, TX, where she is developing another Nia community.

Holly’s unique upbringing, education, competence, passion, and charisma have been a blessing in her life. Happily married, pursuing her work and loving her family, Holly looks forward to every day she gets to share the rich, body-learning experience of Nia, wherever she is. Experience Nia with Holly and connect to the music, movement, and magic of Nia, which can truly change your life.
