Biography

Mandy has been practicing Nia for 11 years and has completed the White, Green and Blue Belt trainings, 52 Moves and Moving to Heal modalities. She’s an accredited Nia Teacher and Mindfulness and Meditation Teacher on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and she’s passionate about sharing the joy of movement.

“Nia has created a positive transformation in my life. There’s no doubt it’s expressive, mindful movement has been good for both my physical and mental health. I feel more focused, less emotional and so much happier when I’m dancing Nia regularly. My body is strong, I have more vitality and I’m fitter than ever before.”

 “As a teacher, I love sharing Nia’s mix of martial arts, healing arts and dance arts and its unique blend of grace and power. It’s a lifestyle practice and a fun-filled way to take care of yourself.”

Mandy is a certified Trauma Sensitive Movement Practitioner and her trauma sensitive classes offer a safe space to express, move and heal. Classes are for women only.

THREE CLASS TYPES

Classic Nia – Dance FItness Classes

Classic Nia is a joyful, cardio dance workout to music.  This class incorporates simple movement patterns and is designed to condition your body and bring up feelings of inner joy and connection. Nia fitness classes draw from 52 basic moves which are based on the intelligent design of the body. These moves lubricate joints, strengthen and stretch muscles and promote stability, flexibility and agility. You will step out of a Classic Nia class feeling energised, mentally clear and balanced. Suitable for beginners.

Gentle Nia – Gentle, Rhythmic Movement Classes – Mona Vale location only

Gentle Nia is great if you prefer a slower-paced movement practice. This class uses the same music and moves as Classic Nia but with less physical intensity. Gentle Nia is taught at level 1, the most intrinsic, close to the body movements with an emphasis on awareness, breath, balance and self-healing.  Suitable for beginners. 

Moving Through Anxiety – 4 Class Program – Mona Vale location only

This program offers restorative movement plus helpful, take-home tools to reduce symptoms of anxiety, stress, isolation or immobility resulting from trauma, grief or the impact of COVID-19.

Moving Through Anxiety combines grounding and self-soothing practices with Nia movement to music as a therapeutic practice. You will learn how to develop somatic skills and slow down to listen to the voice of your body – sensation. Sensation is a tool for self-healing and the key to self-awareness. Growing body literacy helps you to track your inner feelings and consciously move through anxiety towards comfort and “feeling better”.

This is a small group class, bookings essential. Individual sessions are available on application.
