“Nia provides beautiful soulful movement sustenance that gets my whole being sensing unparalleled gratitude, wonder and delight”!  I had spent years dancing professionally, yet it was only upon discovering Nia, that I experienced a deep fulfilment.  The holistic approach of Nia allows so much to be embraced, explored and permissible.  The practice inspires growth, variety, learning, being in the moment and spontaneous expression!  I love sharing the exuberance of Nia and watching my students discover just how playful and healing Nia can be.  Furthermore I teach Qi Gong and Tai Chi which provides another beautiful and accessible way to bring calm, resilience, meaning and balance to one’s life.

Join me as we connect, awaken and ignite your joy of living and being in your body! So much awaits you if you decide to embark on this journey.  Such a rich adventure and celebration which will have you dancing through life!”
