NIA – “Now I Am”
Why? Because I love to dance!

I first stumbled across Nia at a local festival a few years ago and decided to try it out. I’d never danced in that way before and I’d certainly never experienced the sheer sense of wellbeing and elation that Nia gave me.

Nia stands for “Non-Impact Aerobics” and incorporates nine dance forms and 52 moves. It has elements of free dance where you get to dance in any way as long as it feels good!

I wanted more! Returning from the festival I realised that there were no Nia teachers in my local area so the only way I could get to dance Nia was to become a Nia teacher.

I completed my White Belt intensive training in Gloucestershire and couldn’t wait to share the Nia experience. So here I am, running three classes a week across Leicestershire, working with people of all ages and all abilities and from all walks of life, with common goals; to feel joy through movement, to experience that sense of freedom through dance, and to awaken your inner child.

Through Nia we can experience a huge emotional release – it really is the missing piece of the jigsaw for many of us, to connect with our inner selves and the world around us.

As well as my weekly classes, I am available to run bespoke classes across Leicestershire; team building events, wellbeing events and retreats.
