We offer fitness that's purposeful and meaningful.
Nia® is a workout, a practice, a lifestyle and a tool for:
I'm Valerie, I discovered Nia Technique® in Honolulu, Hawai'i in 2011, and everything about my life has been exponentially better ever since. Nia® stirs me to my core and it has taught me how feel healthy and well from the inside out. I've tried many different types of "workouts," and I'm convinced Mind-Body Fitness programs like Nia®, are not only effective but also the most sustainable- I'm here to help you stay on the wagon!
I guide people in taking charge and being in the driver seat of their workout routine.
"Valerie always knows what I need. Nia® is the perfect combination of dance, stretching and strengthening. The playlist is rich, rhythmic and spiritual. I always feel amazing when I leave her class. I feel like I have transcended through the daily grind, in just an hour, into bliss! Nia® is both feminine and masculine- through graceful dance and strong martial arts. There is always a class focus that makes me aware of my body, so I am reminded not to take movement for granted. I also burn between 400-500 calories per class, that's always a bonus!"
