"She also began training as a dance teacher in the 'Nia' style, which focuses on sensing and respecting your body.

Jenn Hicks shares her experience of how anxiety fueled her to exercise, but soon turned into an addiction to continue getting physical results and looking a certain way. She shares her journey, that eventually led her to go to India and reset, and how Nia, coming from a place of respect for the body, transformed her relationship with her own personal body.
