Having worked and performed in the dance industry, where competition, external appearance and the ‘no pain, no gain’ mentality was prevalent, Emily fell in love with Nia’s focus on inclusivity, fun, self-expression, self-care and self-acceptance. By dancing Nia, Emily has learnt to listen more deeply and clearly to her body’s needs, which has lead to a softness in her movement and approach to life. With regular Nia practice, Emily is better able to mindfully choose joy and sustain a sense of ease and flow in her life.
Emily is very proud to offer Nia classes, that make dance and fitness accessible to children and adults of all ages, levels of experience and physical facility. Participants have an opportunity to improve their health and wellbeing, express and create, feel connected to a conscious community and discover joy in movement, all in a safe and supportive environment.
Emily studied a Bachelor of Arts (Dance and Theatre Studies) and a Bachelor of Education, and additionally completed her Nia Blue Belt teacher accreditation. Emily is currently the Head of Dance at Gungahlin College and is the Founder and Director of Energy in Motion – Dance and Wellbeing, through which she teaches Nia classes and in-school creative dance programs.

A Classic Nia class is a sensory-based, cardio movement class to music that blends 52 moves with martial arts, dance arts, and healing arts – body, mind, emotion, and spirit. Classes are open to all, as you’re invited to choose an appropriate level of intensity and/or range of motion to meet your needs.
Please wear comfortable clothing for movement and please bring a drink bottle for water. Nia is designed to be practised barefoot, so no special footwear is required.
