Many years ago I discovered Nia after searching the Sydney suburbs for a dance class I could just have fun with. Coming from a traditional dance background (ballet, jazz) I had grown tired of the fixation on exact steps and perfect technique. I just loved to dance!
I met an inspirational teacher, Noel Boycott, who encouraged me gently to explore the modality of Nia and becoming a certified Nia Instructor. Since those early days I have undertaken two levels of Nia Instructor training – the White and Blue belt intensives. Both belt experiences were life changing. Nia is extremely holistic and works at achieving balance in all areas, not just movement.
Another lovely element of Nia is the strong community full of beautiful souls all looking to help each other bring more Nia to the world.
One fellow Nia-ite, Anya, who I have had the pleasure of dancing with will be holding a 7 day Nia retreat in Bali this year.
This retreat just has me so excited!
For those who read my post a few days ago reviewing the book “Yoga Bitch,” you will already be aware of my love for Bali and the fond memories I have of Ubud after completing a 10 day yoga retreat in 2010. However this retreat is raising the bar! Not only will I able to return to Ubud and immerse myself back into yoga bliss, but I can now include Nia in my 7 days of heaven!
Below are the event details and contact info for the retreat.
This retreat is suitable for all levels and a great chance to chill out just before the manic festive season.
