Biography

Patricia (Trish) has completed the White Belt training, The Art of Teaching Level 1 (Green Belt), The Blue Belt,  the Brown Belt plus several specialty trainings –  Nia Moving to Heal, Nia FreeDance, the 52 Moves, Nia Floorplay & the Nia 5 Stages.  

Trish 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 had more depth & would fulfill me on a more wholistic level than other movement/dance practices.

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 & am eternally grateful for the personal healing I have received from this unique lifestyle practice.   

Having a background of over 35 years as a personal development/life skills facilitator, teacher, speaker, counsellor & retreat facilitator,  I find that the Nia Technique perfectly completes my jigsaw puzzle  & beautifully complements my teachings 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.”
