Jason Alan Griffin

Seattle, Washington, United States

Jason has been passionate about maintaining optimum health and physical fitness since childhood. Jack LaLanne was his first mentor as he exersized along to his television show in syndication 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, Jason 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."

Jason 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." Jason 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 Jason found himself answering the call to Nia. When missing from his life, Jason could feel the desire to have it back. It was a clear call.

In February of 2014, Jason 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. 

Now Jason drives all over the United States with River in the passenger seat. His intention is to teach Nia in any place along his path that will welcome him and his pal, River, and share the beauty and pleasure of Nia. Visit this site to see JAG's Traveling and Teaching Schedule:

In October 2017, he plans to start up classes again in his Nia Home Town of Seattle.
