Jamie Klein

Nia First Degree Black Belt Teacher
Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States

My heart’s answer to the question, “what do you want to be when you grow up”, has always been, “a dancer”. For decades, conventional aerobic dance programs, adult tap dancing, weight lifting and biking filled my need for movement and fitness.  

In January of 2009 everything changed as I stepped into my first Nia class in Dallas, Texas.  Nia’s guided journey into accessible dynamic flow of energy, ease and pure joy of movement, release of body tension, playful freedom and the ability to experience healing in body and soul opened a whole new world to me.

My early Nia education began with Holly Nastasi's stellar White Belt training and Nia 5 Stages of Movement Development with Debbie Rosas.  Receiving these trainings re-invented my way of understanding anatomy and the body/mind connection.  Subsequent Nia belts and personal practice would then guide me through a healing journey that included 4 decades of intense physical pain, frustration and ultimately a full hip replacement.  That surgery and the fine doctors and therapists i worked with would give the me opportunity to reclaim my dancer's body.  For me, it was a miracle and the birth of a passion to share the word of "Nia".

Nia continues to change my body and my life every day.  I truly believe that awareness is the way.  A practice of conscious movement with no judgement is the path to sustainable health and fitness, well-being and a life state of "joy".  Through Nia I am privileged to connect and grow along with my students, witnessing the awakenings in body, mind and spirit both on and off the dance floor.  Almost 10 years of one on one work with movement disorders has enriched my life and my work.  My Nia classes, tailored private movement sessions, 5 Stages and Moving to Heal experiences provide an opportunity to personalize the practice for maximum benefit, no matter what an individual's circumstances might be.

Since that very first Nia class with Jule Aguire, I have studied with many of our training faculty including Debbie Rosas Stewart, Carlos Aya Rosas, Holly Nastasi, Ann Christiansen, Helen Terry, Winalee Zeeb, Caroline Kholes, Kelle Rae Oien, Loretta Milo, Shannon Mairs, Al Wright, Vicki Saito, and Siere Munro.  I honor each of their gifts to me and strive to be the very best I can be in every moment this life offers me.  Deep gratidude to every teacher and student who has insprired my journey.  I look forward to sharing this journey with YOU on the dance floor along the way...
