Nia, for me is poetry in motion, the joy of life expressed.

From a young age, I have always wanted to dance. Initially that was ballet, a very disciplined and regimented form of dance. The dreams I had of dancing for life were shattered when I had to undergo knee surgery, but the dream of moving for a living never really left my body. I became and still am a group and personal training instructor, with specialties in Pilates, Functional Movement and Aquaerobics, but it was only when I discovered Nia that I knew the joy of movement and found my body's inspiration. I rediscovered the fun and passion of moving my body's way (the way we feel as a child at play) and more freedom and comfort than I ever felt in the controlled movement of ballet. Nia has healed my knees, and continues to heal my heart and my life as I dance through life in-joy.
