Nia White Belt Teacher
, Illinois, United States

While experiencing my first Nia® class tears rolled down my cheek.  My emotions were stirring, my spirit was soaring, and pure bliss had been ignited from movement & music that felt amazing inside and out!  After almost twenty years, I had finally found what I had been searching for.  As a dancer and artist, I had placed my needs and desires for self-fulfilling movement aside to pursue other avenues. After nine rewarding years of teaching at the elementary school level, and nine fulfilling years working in the home raising our family, I had rediscovered myself and reconnected to my body spiritually, emotionally and physically through the Nia® practice.  I was immediately hooked!  My first Nia class was truly magical as well as each experience on this journey continues to be.  Sharing my passion for Nia and witnessing it's immediate positive benefits within the rich community of people I have met along the way, is what I treasure most!  I invite you to 'step in' to a new way of thinking, feeling, sensing and being ~ Dancing Through Life ~ moving to heal and condition while stimulating mind, body, spirit, and emotions in a profound movement and lifestyle practice.  All ages,  body-types, fitness levels and physical abilties are called to explore their human potential in a positive community setting.  No prior experience.  I look forward to meeting you and joining you in your own personal Movement~Music~Magic,  Nia style!

Why should people come to one of my classes?  Nia is like no other movement class you may have experienced!  It is a life-changing practice that heals you from the inside ~ out!  All ages (children-adults), body-types, fitness levels, physical abilities and limitations, including those undergoing rehabilitation or requiring a chair, are welcome as we move Joyfully according to our body's natural design, "The Body's Way",  NO PAIN ~ ALL GAIN!  Three intensity levels and three planes of movement are demonstrated to help you target your individual needs. You don't have to be a kick-boxer, dancer, or yogi to reap the many holistic benefits of Nia.  It's FUN, easy to follow movements get your heart pumping and tone your muscles while you gain strength & flexibility.  YES!  Martial Arts, Dance Arts, and Healing Arts are integrated and set to inspirational music for one dynamic class!   The total body conditioning movements will have you dripping wet with sweat and feeling rejuvenated.  YES!  While performing Nia barefoot and stimulating nerve endings in the soles of your feet, you'll feel balanced and exhilarated while enhancing your holistic self efficiently. . . Mind~Body~Spirit~Emotions are Ignited!  COME KICK OFF YOUR SHOES AND JOIN US!  WARNING!  IT'S POSITIVELY ADDICTING!

What type of Nia classes do I offer?  Nia colleagues, partners and friends, Carleen Weber and I, take our Nia classes 'On The Move' within the Greater St. Louis Area and surrounding communities.  We offer our classes at a variety of venues and settings that include outdoors, studios, commercial spaces, church facilities and private settings.  Traditional 60 minute Nia classes and 30 minute express classes are available.  Our 30 minute classes offer everything you gain from a traditional 60 minute class, yet in half the time, accommodating busy schedules and offering rates at a fraction of the cost. You'll be amazed how invigorated and relaxed you'll feel post class!  Nia ~ Express!

What about Nia classes for children?   I offer 'NiaTotz' (adult & child bonding classes) for toddlers and up, and 'NiaKidz' classes for independent movers, adults always welcome.  'NiaTotz' and 'NiaKidz' classes offer all the benefits of traditional Nia classes while incorporating child-friendly movement & music in one 30 minute dynamic class.  Adult participation is always welcome & encouraged!  Participants engage in expressive movements stemming from Martial Arts, Dance Arts, & Healing Arts,  promoting creativity and increasing fine/gross motor skills, brain development, balance, coordination, cardio-vascular health, social skills, attention span and much more!  Hosting a children's play date or party?  Leading a Scout Troop and looking to promote healthy and active lifestyles for our youth?  Searching for a non-competitive activity that provides an opportunity for your child to lead, share, and respond to others?  Looking to bond with your child in fun, purposeful movement?  Nia classes for children and have it all!  

What about private Nia classes?  Private Nia classes are offered for girl/boy scout troops, church community & health programs, school health programs, cancer healing & wellness programs, corporate wellness programs/retreats, children's play dates, child and adult gatherings/parties, rehabilitation programs, and more!  To inquire or reserve a class for your group of 10 or more, please contact me for more information.

Live your life passionately. . . "Love Your Body ~ Love Your Life!"
