I am a 1st Degree Black Belt Nia Instructor and have been practicing for 18 years. Nia is self-healing and self expression through conscious awareness of how you use your body, mind, emotions and Spirit. It is cardiovascular for the body and cleansing for the soul. Nia invites us to move as a whole system, an integrated unit that chooses the sensation of pleasure and the state of Joy in the body as our baseline and we expand our awareness, our movement and our expression from there. Nia is Movement as Medicine.
