Nia Blue Belt Teacher
Columbus, Ohio, United States

I am keen to share the beauty of NIA, the bliss, the ecstasy, the poetry that comes alive through our senses! As a Nia teacher, I offer a safe space where people may find magic in music, healing in movement, universal joy, flow and ease! 
 
Dance is body poetry to me!
It is my joy, my sanctuary. Dance is deeply ingrained in our culture in the Philippines where I'm from. I grew up with it.  As a young girl, I performed dances in community events, in school, even in neighbours' houses, together with my sisters. I've travelled to more than 50 countries and dance is how I connect beyond words with different cultures. 

Coming to the USA, I looked for dance studios in my neighbourhood but can't find any, until I stumbled upon NIA.  I fell in love with it!

I was a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, got exposed to Feldenkrais and personal growth. I'm a trained NLP Master Practitioner and the principles of NIA are congruent with personal growth and healing principles. I was thrilled that a practice combines the best of all worlds that I so loved: Dance, Martial Arts, Healing Arts!

My first few sessions in NIA healed a recurring arm issue I had. I was then inspired to pursue the practice completing my White Belt in June 2016 and recently, my Blue Belt. Nia has offered me a life-long path for joy, wellness, learning, teaching and community.
