Since childhood, dancing has fascinated me. Jazz- and Modern Dance, Ballroom Dancing and also Tap Dancing have accompanied me through life earlier.In 2004 I discovered NIA for the first time and I immediately fell in love with it. The simplicity of the flowing movements and the joy of movement were so fascinating to me. Since then I keep dancing NIA regularly and passionately.
In 2013 I took the White Belt Intensive Training with Ann Christiansen, followed by the Green Belt Teacher Training in autumn 2017, also with Ann. In addition I train NIA 1-2 times a week and participate continuously in various Workshops.
NIA just makes me feel good. Taking a NIA class after a hard working day, I have an increased feeling of relaxation and inner balance. But it also makes me sweat. I feel more enjoyment of life and of moving. Dancing, sweating and laughing – this and much more is NIA for me.
