I grew up as an athlete, pushing my body hard and pounding the heck out of my joints - great fun, but it took its toll, and I was in pain. I began practicing Nia regularly in 2004, and have been discovering that using pleasure as my guide can bring so much more strength and healing to my body – and my life - than my previous mantra of "No Pain No Gain." I used to be strong but rigid. Now, thanks to Nia, I feel strong and supple, able to move with grounded stability, creativity, variety, and freedom. Oh! And a lot less pain!

I completed my Nia White Belt training and teacher certification in 2008 with France-Laude Gohard and began teaching in 2009. I LOVE to dance, and Nia brings joy and passion to my life. I completed my Green Belt training with Carlos AyaRosas, Britta van Tagen, and Ken Gilbert in July 2010, and I love learning and sharing the joy of Nia!

A while back, I was invited to write a guest post about my experience of dance as embodied spirituality at Magpie Girl.com. It was a pleasure to share the joy! Check it out.

In early 2013, I completed Life Coach Training with the wise, funny, and irrepressible Martha Beck, Ph.D. - best-selling author, monthly O Magazine columnist, and Oprah's "Favorite Life Coach." I love working with passionate people who are ready for more joyful, authentic, full-bodied living. Visit me at www.katiebagby.com.

While I've been training and launching my coaching business, I've taken a pause from teaching regular Nia classes. Nevertheless, Nia remains a part of my life everyday. Watch for new classes and workshops in the future!
