I find Nia is easier and more fun than Zumba. I workout my way. Try it!
I started teaching fitness classes in 2003, doing step aerobics and kickboxing at the University of Washington IMA. After a move to Portland, I discovered Nia and was a quick convert. I completed my white belt in 2006 and since then I have been teaching Nia with ever increasing joy! I am currently a black belt level Nia teacher, and I also enjoy modern dance and yoga. When I'm not on the dance floor, I work as a biomedical researcher studying neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and ALS. It is my great privilege to help people of all types find healing and joy through Nia.
