Katia Mikhailova

Nia Blue Belt Teacher
Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland

Since completing her Nia White Belt Training, Katia has become a student of “The Body’s Way” - a term coined by the Nia creators in the 80s. There is nothing more beautiful and gracious than the body given to us, no matter what size or form. Katia is on a mission to prove this to you through Nia Dance – the ultimate holistic fitness program that promotes authentic dance. She is teaching her participants that loving your body is the first step towards self-improvement whether physical, mental or emotional.

Often times, we do not pay attention to our body’s needs; we either do not hear our body because we are not used to listening, or we ignore it. American writer Henry Miller said: ‘Our own physical body possesses a wisdom which we who inhabit the body lack. We give it orders which make no sense.’ In her Nia classes, Katia uses instructions that are focused on fostering awareness of the body, loving your body and joyful, fun movements. She incorporates humor, movement exploration and free dance. This multi-faceted approach allows participants to experience the many different aspects of Nia.

Katia has been exploring diverse forms of body movement since her childhood. She received ballet training in Russia from the age of 8 to 14, moving later on to other types of movement such as modern dance, yoga, tai chi and Pilates. She has been teaching Nia since October 2011 and follows workshops and training sessions conducted by Nia Trainer Ann Christiansen, as she continually adds to the repertoire of skills that she brings to her classes and shares with her students.
