Sandra discovered nia® in January of 2015 when she was looking for a cardio workout to do while recovering from injury during a triathlon training. She found nia® - a non-impact exercise that worked every aspect of the body - that she could do "her body's way".
During her first nia® class, Sandra was very nervous but felt welcomed and accepted. She had found what she was looking for - an amazing exercise experience that she says "brought me back to myself". nia® has given her a tremendous feeling of freedom and her body has responded with lessened aches and pains, weight loss and toning, and nice juicy joints. nia® has also brought calm and reflection as well as the freedom to express herself in a judgment-free zone as she danced.
As she learned more about the benefits of nia®, teaching was the next logical step and Sandra registered for her White Belt Certification. Sandra now shares nia® and Moving To Heal with others through her unique teaching style. Sandra continues to take Nia Teacher Training to hone her skills – completing her latest - her Green Belt Certification in May 2019. Sandra is a co-owner of the n~motion studio, LLC.
