Sue discovered Nia after an inner ear disorder left her with chronic vertigo and robbed her of her balance. In 1999, in an effort to bring more balance into her life, both literally and figuratively, she began attending Nia classes and discovered Nia was a path to health, fitness, and well-being. A pharmacist for over 30 years, in 2011 Sue left healthcare for wellness. She is also certified by the American Council on Exercise as a personal trainer.
Now a Nia Brown Belt Instructor, Sue did her Nia trainings with Nia Co-Creators, Debbie Rosas and Carlos Rosas. She completed her White Belt in 2001, her Blue Belt in 2006 and her Brown Belt in 2011. She’s been teaching Nia since 2002. Her classes combine the passion, playfulness, humor, emotional release, athleticism, structure, freedom, technique and improvisation. As one who has found self-healing, she expresses the creativity and fluidity of dance; the power and precision of martial arts; the focus and concentration of the healing arts; and the joy of just moving the body in ways that feel good.
