ST Nia Photo for new siteIt was truly a JOY to discover Nia in 1997 while I was the Director of Health Promotion and assistant professor in the School of Medicine at the University of Virginia. I remember a colleague walking into my office with a flyer advertising a free Nia class that night at a local studio. She said, “Susan, this has your name all over it!” She was right. After enjoying classes for two years, I flew to California to take the first level of Nia training. I began teaching in Charlottesville a few months later.

carlosDebbie-Rosas-Headshot-2011-0319It has been a privilege to complete all my trainings with The Nia Technique co-creators Debbie Rosas and Carlos AyaRosas (pictured right). As a black belt Nia instructor, Nia Moving to Heal instructor, and certified Nia 5 Stages of Self-Healing instructor; I continue to learn and grow through joy with each class I teach and each Nia training I take. And after teaching several thousand classes, I can assure you that the learning and the joy continues.  

Candle1Nia students and teachers in Antwerp, New York City, Washington DC, Toronto, Seattle, Waimea (Hawaii), and cities in between have been moved by my signature workshop: Igniting the Power of the Pelvis. It combines the best of my experiences as a sexuality health educator, nourisher, and Nia teacher.

When I moved to the Seattle area in 2000, I happily expanded my Nia practice and found it to be such a wonderful complement to my nutritional consulting, wellness coaching, writing, and speaking. As a health educator for over forty-five years, adding the Nia principals to all the work I do has made my work more sustainable and valuable for those I serve.

I have just recently moved back to Charlottesville, where I danced my first Nia steps 20 years ago. Through a generous grant from the Charlottesville Women’s Four Miler group, I am teaching Nia at the Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center at the University of Virginia. My current class schedule can tell you more.

I am the ecstatically proud mother of two amazing adult children and I delight in being a dancing grandmother! Gratitude fills my days.
