~ Meet partners 'On The Move' ~
Always on the move, I’ve been an avid runner, yogi, weight lifter, Zumba gal, biker, boot camper, you name it. I’ve liked and disliked my workouts, usually enjoying my playlist most. My upper body was strong and my lower body was in shape but never quite ‘whole’. My feet were confined in expensive footwear, and I was usually nursing a pulled or strained ______. You fill in the blank. Perhaps you’ve been there?
In January 2006, I walked into a strange venue not knowing a soul and had no idea what to expect. What I did know is that I was SO ready for a different style of workout that would show results, nurture the holistic me and MOST IMPORTANT it had to be FUN!!! I found Nia and immediately felt the ‘click’. Everything I love and believe in that will stimulate me and my entire life focus in one beautiful art form ~ Nia.
Nia, encourages me to play with and move my body in accordance with its design and function “The Body’s Way”. Consistent practice had me noticing my core was strong and curvy and inches were falling off. Was I beginning to see a ‘dancer’s body’? Yes! It’s me! Throw in grace, strength, energy, and a sense of calm all working together to improve my balance, reflexes, stamina and most important....... a love for myself and my body!
Six years later, I obtained my White and Green Belts in Nia® Instruction. My former experience in management as well as my Clinical Social Work License has allowed me to inspire others as facilitator, educator, and counselor. True to the social work philosophy, I believe one part of the system affects the whole. With Nia, I reap holistic benefits. nurturing my body, mind, spirit and emotions.
I love to connect with people. My friends are an eclectic group and you might describe my home decor and taste in music the same way. My hobbies and experiences are vast and colorful. I believe in working hard and playing hard, and what you give you get back two-fold. I’ve been married for 19 years to a great guy who supports and puts up with my adventures and me. My twin ten-year-olds keep me young, busy, and honest.
