Brisbane based Oriana embodies Self-healing. She loves inspiring others to move to receive the magic of Nia Movement as Medicine – to feel better. During the Pandemic, Nia has been instrumental in sustaining mental and emotional wellbeing for Oriana and her students.

On the dance floor, Ory invites you to slip into Sensation to find your unique sense of playfulness, joy, and personal empowerment. 

In 2011 Oriana replaced her punishing gym workouts with this nurturing, healing movement that has transformed her immune and nervous systems, and added an inch to her height by organically re-aligning her posture.

Oriana has completed the Nia White, Green, Blue, Brown and Black Belt trainings, the Nia 5 Stages, Nia 52 Moves and Moving 2 Heal trainings.
