Biography

I discovered Nia about 3 and a half years ago and fell in love with it immediately!

As a kid and all through school, I hated all kinds of sport and physical activity. I was uncoordinated, always picked last for team sports and even had a phobia of balls!
Fast forward a few years, in my last year at university, I studied a subject called Music and Health, for which we were required to create a playlist to accompany an exercise routine! My worst nightmare! What was I going to use as my form of exercise?!
Mum suggested I come along to a Nia class so I went – and I loved it! I researched Nia and learnt about its foundations, why it was created and what it can do for your overall wellbeing. I created my playlist and submitted my assignment. I have been going to Nia classes weekly ever since.

Nia started my fitness journey; after finding Nia, I found other forms of exercise I enjoy and now do up to 3-4 hours of exercise classes every night 6 days a week.

What I love about Nia is the freedom of expression and connecting with my body in a judgment-free environment with a focus on the JOY of movement – moving in a way that feels good to you! I also love the friends and community I have met on my Nia journey and in Nia classes. I love that you don’t have to be coordinated, that you can choose the level of your own workout and just have fun!

A bit more about me:
I am a certified Feng Shui Master and have my own Feng Shui business.
I sing.
At university I completed a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Chinese (language) and International Relations. I also completed a concurrent Diploma in Languages in French. Additionally, my studies included Spanish, Positive Psychology and Music and Health.
I also speak Japanese and basic Auslan
