Myrna Weinman

Nia Black Belt Teacher
Evanston, Illinois, United States

I first experienced  the joy of movement 17 years ago. As I danced in my first Nia class, I felt a door opening within. I stepped through, I turned inward and though I was surrounded by swaying bodies of various shapes, sizes,and abilities, I connected  deeply to myself for the first time. I became body aware for the first time, I was present for the first time. Following simple steps and gestures, with poetic verbal guidance, and fun,varied music, I became the witness of my own movement experience. I found my body. I found wonder. I found the Joy of Movement.

I believe  in the transformational power of movement. Movement that touches people deeply on all levels; phyiscally, mentally, emotionally,spiritually and energetically. I believe movement  is the pathway through which we find health and balance. I believe movement is our birthright. I believe dance and movement is both our diagnostic tool and a theraputic opportunity. I believe movement is the way we connect to ourselves.

Nia was developed to facillitate access to each of the your body's realms,facillitating that connection to yourself.The form of Nia provides the structure and also encourages freedom within that structure.Then you, Nia and the instructor co-create your experience. Nia is accessable to all bodies,and because Nia is self directed,it as accessable to all fitness levels.

The practice of Nia gave me access to my own body. I am honored to co-facilitate that access in others every week.
