Janet Hollander

Nia Teacher Trainer
Pleasant Hill, Oregon, United States

I was first attracted to Nia by its diverse influences. I had studied modern, jazz, and creative dance in school, folk dance with my social group, and dabbled in yoga, judo, and Tai Chi. I was amazed and pleased that someone else had made an integrated program out of my haphazard lifetime curriculum. I attended a master class with Debbie Rosas and Carlos Rosas when they visited my town and I was smitten with a sense of authenticity. I knew I wanted to study with them.

Within a year, I registered for my first training. As I began preparing to attend the White Belt, I discovered that Nia provided a refuge of comfortable movement following 20+ years of knee and neck pain. Never an evangelist before, now I wanted everyone to know how much better their bodies could feel.

I continued my career as a gerontologist, offering recreation and exercise for older adults, never imagining that my Nia hobby would someday blend with my professional training. And now, I am certain that Nia has not only given me a fitness and lifestyle practice I can do for the rest of my life, but that many elements of Nia philosophy and implementation offer exactly what research is telling us is the path to healthy longevity. Nia provides myriad tools for resilience and sustainability for the body, the mind and the spirit. It addresses the many aspects of wellness, not only physical, but mental, emotional, social, environmental, spiritual, and vocational.

 I love adding helpful applications of the White Belt curriculum to the latter third of life.
