Nia First Degree Black Belt Teacher
Seattle, Washington, United States

Jag has been passionate about maintaining optimum health and physical fitness since childhood. Jack LaLanne was his first mentor as he exersized along to his syndicated television show every morning before going to elementary school. A natural athlete, Jag grew up in Santa Barbara playing tennis, soccer, baseball, swimming and wrestling. In his 20's, he moved to Seattle and got into dancing and teaching aerobics. At the age of 30, discovering Nia and meeting Debbie and Carlos changed his life and he never put his shoes back on again. Now, Jag says, "I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to teach this technique that does such a thorough job at conditioning the body and is also so creative and expressive as well."

Jag first obtained his White Belt in 1996, and acheived Black Belt in 2001. Since then, he has taught many classes and workshops from coast to coast and all across the USA and Italy and Ireland. After having spent over a decade teaching and living in New York City while simultaneous enjoying an acting and modeling career there, he hung it ALL up in 2011 to do some soul searching.

"The idea was to go Tabula Rasa and spend a lot of time in RAW. Relaxed, alert and waiting for whatever calling I will be answering next." Jag  found himself adopting a dog from the local shelter and buying a car. "The open road was going to be my next calling". But then Jag found himself answering the call to Nia. When missing from his life, Jag could feel the desire to have it back. It was a clear call. So now he travels all over the USA with River in the back seat and teaches classes and workshops wherever they let him bring a dog  

In February of 2014, Jag took the next step and joined the avant-garde of Nia by obtaining his First Degree Black Belt. He is also trained as a Nia Five Stages teacher and a Nia FreeDance DJ. He got his Second Degree Black Belt in January 2019.
