NIA HOLISTIC DANCE
Creating accessible movement for EveryBody to dance from your Soul!
It brings me so much joy to be able to offer one-on-one sessions and group classes designed to heal, expand and empower people using the Nia Technique. As a certified and licensed Nia Brown Belt instructor, I create a space for healing and choosing joy through movement.
Nia, or Neuromuscular Integrative Action, is a sensory-based movement practice fusing nine different movement forms from the dance arts, martial arts, and the healing arts including yoga. As a cardiovascular exercise, Nia builds flexibility, agility, mobility, strength, and stability. The focus of my Nia classes is on helping participants to feel embodied through expressive, soulful movement and finding pleasure in moving. Many people have shared testimonials of the ways it has helped them find emotional release and better manage conditions like depression, anxiety, diabetes, arthritis, and fibromyalgia.
In my classes, I balance the joy, excitement, and fun of Nia with its calming, meditative, and healing components. An instructor since 2008, I facilitate Nia classes and workshops that encourage community and connection among class participants. Impressions from my cultural experiences in West Africa, Central America, and South Africa can be felt in my classes through the sounds and rhythms of these musically rich places. Each gathering with me is a unique experience with a blend of broad influences that allow me to provide a quality education around health and movement wellness while building a rapport with a diverse group of participants. After a Nia class with me, you are sure to step into your day on the “Nia cloud” – strong and determined yet relaxed and rejuvenated!
