Nia Blue Belt Teacher
Bastrop, Texas, United States

I discovered Nia in the late 1980's while working out at a fitness club in Austin. Having put aside dance for a decade, my heart leapt when I saw women dancing beautifully to music at a fitness club.. I practiced Nia there for about 6 months and, once again, put dance aside as I went back to college and finished a degree in Biology to become a high school teacher.

In 1999 my husband and I moved 20 miles east of Austin to the town of Bastrop.  Not too far from our home is a Hyatt Resort and I heard that there was a Nia class at the Hyatt spa taught by Julie Wylie. I joined Julie's Sunday morning classes and loved them.  In 2008 Julie suggested I take White Belt Intensive training to go deeper into my Nia experience. I guess this suggestion was made at exactly the right time, because my heart responded with a mighty YES! and I signed up to take White Belt with Holly Nastasi at Synergy Studio in San Antonio.  I loved the training and my new Nia sisters. Even though I purchased Livelihood Membership, I had no intention of teaching. The idea of leading a dance fitness class scared me to death.....and at the same time, I was aware that I was fascinated with the idea. I'm a teacher, right? I love dance? Could this be in my future???

One Friday night in 2014 my fingers called Julie and my mouth said " I'm ready to teach Nia and I need your help". I started working with Julie on a consulting basis for a few months and she helped me get started developing my personal practice and learning my first routine, White Belt Dreamwalker. In November 2014 I began teaching my first Nia class at the Y in Bastrop. I added two more classes per week during 2015.

So often I hear those in the Nia Community say that Nia has changed their life. It certainly has transformed mine. In the last year I have cleaned up my diet, lost 40 pounds while I've gained so much confidence and energy.  l have discovered a capacity for self- discipline and commitment like I've not know before- motivated by desire and love (not fear).

January 3rd, 2016 I opened Studio Espavo on Main Street in my town of Bastrop,Tx. The studio space is beautiful and has the integrity that NIA classes  deserve. I offer 5 NIA classes and 1 Gentle NIA class each week.  My studio also offers yoga classes, healing arts classes and workshops.  I love every moment of teaching and every day as owner, manager of a Studio where I can share this beautiful practice with my community and create a living for myself doing work I love.

Eckart Tolle says we all have the same inner purpose in life- and that is to be PRESENT. Once we learn to be present, we are awakened to our outer purpose, which is unique to every person. My outer purpose is SHARING NIA. I know that now and never have to wonder what my purpose is again!  At age 59 I get to dance every day! Thank you life! Thank you NIA!
