Nia + Yoga

When I practice Nia and Yoga, I experience a sense of balance and energy that in any given moment brings me joy, clarity, inspiration, calm, release, self-love, curiosity, resolve or strength.

Each time I step barefoot onto the studio floor or pull out my mat, I create a dedicated space and time to investigate the connection and relationship between my body and mind. Like many relationships, the more I explore it, play with it, expand it and nurture it, the more it grows, flourishes and shows me things I had never imagined.

As I continue to practice and increase my teaching, the more often these sensations, inspirations and discoveries spill out of the studio and into the rest of my life. Honestly, sometimes I’m not sure whether the ideas, inspirations, revelations and resolutions I experience while moving in my practice come from my head…or my toes!


What will it be like for you?


I was new to Nia, and after Christine’s class I was on a body high for days! With her welcoming and accepting spirit she lead us through body movements and dance steps that made me feel powerful and fluid in my body. She demonstrated several levels for the moves and supported everyone to do the steps at their comfort level. I had so much fun shaking my tail feather and all the while it was a great body workout!

Before my class of Nia with Christine, I had no previous experience, so I was intrigued and excited to try it out. It  honestly exceeded my expectations. This class was so fun, and a great way to move my body, while listening to great music. Christine makes it also extra fun by being so charming, friendly and inviting. She lights up the room with her playful energy. Her class feels like a safe space to be free, silly, or just disconnect for a minute from the chaos of every day life. I highly recommend her class!

NIA has been a wonderful way for me to connect with my body through movement and dance. As if that’s not enough… it’s so much fun and it is a wonderful community. I love that women of all ages come together through dance. Christine is simply one of my favorite instructors, and not just NIA. Her joy is infectious. It is like joy comes out of every pore of her body and we can’t help but feel it too. I love that her music selection is eclectic with a lot of world music so it is a journey for the senses. Christine is the best!

 Nia is a practice that draws on the energies of 9 different movement arts including 3 dance arts, 3 healing arts and 3 martial arts. It gives the body a space to play with strength, precision and agility in the same class as freedom, flow and flexibility. Classic Nia classes are 60 minutes in length and are done barefoot to a wide variety of music.  To learn more about The Nia Technique If you would like to bring a private Nia class to your workplace or community, please contact me.


Yoga provides me with stillness, stability and strength. My practice has helped me avoid and heal from injury as well as created an awareness in my body of when I am more vulnerable and how to best protect myself. Teaching private and small group sessions allows me to provide guidance and encouragement on a more intimate level.
