Biography

Ann has completed the Nia White, Green, Blue and Brown Belt trainings and the Nia 5 Stages, Moving to Heal & Art of Teaching trainings and she is a member of the Nia 5 Stages Master Teaching Faculty. Ann is based in Brisbane.

She discovered Nia in 2006 when she had 2 toddlers, a bad back, was very unfit and had been told she’d never dance again post-knee surgery. “From the very first class I was lit up, loved the music and couldn’t get the smile off my face.” Fast-forward to now, and the culmination of all those years practising Nia has brought massive transformation to Ann’s body and life. She brings her unique spark of joy & playfulness to class and delights in reminding people to trust the deep wisdom of their body. 

If it’s been a while since you moved your body, Nia meets you where you’re at and invites you to move in your own way. Here are some tips on how to start exercising again.

“The music is fabulous and the movements are simple. If you haven’t done Nia before it doesn’t matter. You’re welcome to come along anytime and give it a go. To learn more, give me a call on 0437 392 424. 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. Here are some tips on how to start exercising again.

Nia 5 Stages is a gem of a class. How do you clear your mind? This is a great way to stop thinking and start moving to improve alignment, increase energy, bolster wellbeing and tune into the body’s wisdom. Each class has an anatomical focus which is brought to life through hands-on study of the skeleton, sensing to tune into your body and moving through five develoipmental stages – Embryonic, Creeping, Crawling, Standing and Walking.
