Joy of Movement is key to my life.
It has been increasing my fitness, health, power and beauty.
And joy and fun.
I always loved to move, and for years practiced dance, running, qigong, taiji, Alexander technique. It was great and yet not perfect.
Then Nia and I met.
It is the movement form I dreamt of.
It is my honor to share the joy with you, inspire you, encourage you.
