Nia


This class is taught by:

Amy Gonzalez-Nelsen

Nia White Belt

Born in San Rafael, California and raised in New York, Amy has brought the best of both worlds with her; the serenity of nature and the city street smarts.

She has been practicing Nia for over a year, though for her feels it like a lifetime. She received her White Belt in July of 2013 and jumped right into teaching. The dance, healing and martial arts took her breath away. She has never looked back since. Nia has helped in so many ways, reconnecting to self, having more awareness about the body and what feels right. Amy's style of Nia is unique, tapping into her genuine love of the human connection and sharing a jazzy, infectious nature which is infectious for students of any age.

When not teaching Nia, Amy is raising two amazing little boys. Her professional background includes 20 years experience in the Fashion and Event industries and continues to work today as an event planner.

Movement is her meditation, her way of centering. She believes we are all the car singer, the last person on the dance floor, moving and grooving to the worlds song…we just need to let go of our minds and be present in our awesomeness…listen, the world is playing your favorite song!

Demi Yuvanu

Demi has 10 years teaching experience with Nia and is a Blue Belt level Instructor. She was introduced to it in 2002 in San Diego CA. She instantly fell in love with Nia's philosophy, world music and holistic movement. She received her 1st level of training in CA. in 2004 before moving to Charlotte in 2005. Additionally, she is an Ageless Grace educator, an experiential workshop facilitator, and an EFT coach. She is CPR certified.

Demi, is also the author of two books based on the Science of Mind principles and her empirical understanding of the Laws of Attraction:
About Spiritual Mind Treatments:
Setting the Law of Attraction in Motion and
BeJoWiLo’s Upper House:
Law of Attraction Basics for Children.

Demi was born and raised in Athens, Greece. She has lived in Turkey and in several U.S. States. She has two grown sons and two grandsons!

She’s passionate about kicking her shoes off, letting her body move to Nia's world music and inspiring others to do the same in order to find physical and emotional health through movement!
She also offers an annual Seaside Nia Retreat @ the Greek island Agistri in late Summer.
Her life's philosophy that perception creates our reality and that the Universe ultimately has our best interest at heart, keeps her grounded in a world where visions and desires manifest in alignment with our highest good.
