Biography

Ever feel like you just want time for YOU? Nia is a brilliant way to receive exactly what you need in body, mind and spirit. From my very first class, I was hooked!

When I was a teenager, a doctor told me I’d ‘never be able to dance again’, following surgery on both knees. Fast forward a few years, my husband said ‘what b******t!’. I railed against him then joined a gym where Nia was on offer. ‘What’s Nia?’ I asked. ‘I think you’ll love it’ I was told. I was so uncoordinated but the music took me away and I fell in love … and the rest as they say … is history.

The fun and joy and ‘your body’s way’ permission of Nia combined with the fitness and conditioning has brought incredible change to my body and life. Through Nia trainings, education and practice, I’ve reached a level of health and fitness that I only dreamed of when I was younger. And my family likes me a whole lot better too.

If you’re looking for fitness, conditioning, happiness, flexibility, fun or simply to get moving again I would love to introduce you to Nia! If it’s been a while, here are tips for how to start exercising again.

“The music is fabulous and the movements are simple. If you haven’t done it before that doesn’t matter. You’re welcome to come along anytime and give it a go. Nia classes are suitable for every ‘body’ and no experience is necessary.” Ann

Classic Nia is an hour long fitness class combining elements of dance, martial arts and healing movement therapies, that offers a cardio-vascular workout without the impact of zumba or aerobics. It’s practised barefoot but you can wear shoes it you need to. Each class begins with a focus and intent, stepping into warm up, get moving, cool down, floorplay and then a conscious step out. Key elements of Nia include using awareness of the body, mind, emotions and spirit and choosing to practice being with body sensations that feel good. If it’s been a while since you moved your body, there’s no need to worry. Nia meets you where you’re at and invites you to move in your own body’s way. 

The music is fabulous and the movements are simple. You’re welcome to come along anytime and give it a go. To learn more, give me a call on 0437 392 424.
