Biography

Helen has completed the Nia White, Green, Blue and Brown Belt trainings and the Nia 5 Stages training. Helen is based in Brisbane.

“Nia is the spark that ignited my soul. Each class I take; each training I attend, that light which started out as a little glimmer shines brighter and brighter allowing me to step out in the world with greater self-confidence, self-esteem and awareness.

From the moment the first beat of music pumps out, a smile spreads across my face, my cells tingle in anticipation and my body begins to sing – Nia is a natural high that lasts all day. I get to play, yell, imagine, dance, laugh, melt, sway, sweat, crawl, roll, receive, connect, touch, feel, kick and punch my way into well-being, health and fitness. Nia is so much more than a fitness class. As a practitioner my desire is to spread the magic and awareness of Nia in the community, so others may start their own journey of self-discovery, come home to their own body and allow their soul light to shine bright.”

Sandgate Town Hall – Awakening the Dancer Within 2018

Sandgate Town Hall, Seymour Street, Sandgate, Queensland, Australia

AWAKENING THE DANCER WITHIN

This dance session starts with a guided movement meditation to drop into your body and become present to the rhythm of your soul.   We then gently mesh into the Nia FreeDance experience designed to awaken the artist within and to stimulate an individual’s Art of Conscious Dance.

Guided by a Trained and Certified Nia FreeDance Teacher, participants explore their own movement in their own way and in their own time. Participants dance to soul-stirring music, eclectic sonic landscapes that provide cellular resonance to evoke self-expression, and unleash movement creativity. The 4 parts of Nia FreeDance explore the integration of body, emotion, mind and spirit through a unique focus for each Nia FreeDance experience.

This class is open to every Body. No previous experience necessary. No Dance experience.
