From my very first Nia class, I was hooked.
I’d never taken an aerobics class or formal dance class,
much less thought about teaching. But I missed social dancing,
so I signed up for Nia at the yoga studio where I was taking
Kundalini Yoga classes.
At the end of that first class, I went up to my instructor and
asked her, “How do you go about teaching this class?”
She explained about the Nia Belt System,
and five or so short years later, in 2010, I went to
Nia Headquarters in Portland, Oregon,
and became certified to teach Nia.
Even then, I didn’t plan on teaching, but took the
White Belt Training for my personal growth.
When in 2014 an opportunity to teach
presented itself, the next thing I knew I was
teaching a couple of classes a week, and loving it.
When I’m not practicing Nia,
I’m a decorative artist and faux painter,
and I enjoy taking Zumba and Yoga classes.
