Biography

Patricia (Trish) has completed the White Belt training, The Art of Teaching Level 1 (Green Belt), The Blue Belt,  the Moving to Heal training with the founder of Nia, Debbie Rosas plus the 52 Moves training.    

She has also attended a Nia training retreat plus several playshops and immersions with International trainers. 

“I first discovered Nia in 2012 and immediately knew it was for me!  I have always loved to dance and had been looking for a movement/fitness practice that would fulfill me on a more holistic level than other movement/dance forms.

I find that not only does Nia make me feel energized and alive at the end of each class but my mind, body, spirit & emotions feel more clear & in balance. I particularly love the self-healing aspect of Nia.  

Having a background of over 35 years as a personal development/life skills facilitator, teacher & counsellor, I find that Nia  perfectly completes my jigsaw puzzle  & beautifully complements what I teach with my ‘Journeys of Self-Discovery’ community group. .  

I am excited to share my passion for Nia during my weekly classes & retreats and would love you to join me.”
