About Erin 

In 2007, after being a dedicated Nia student for 5 years, Erin decided it was time to expand her experience beyond being a student, and became a White Belt certified teacher. She has taught regularly since, and in 2010 earned both her Black Belt and Nia 5 Stages Certification. Trained in hatha yoga and bodywork (massage therapy, polarity, reflexology, shiatsu, postural alignment), Erin has a deep and playful curiosity of human anatomy and physiology (even teaching A&P at the NM School of Natural Therapeutics), movement potential, health and wellness. And, she loves to share the Nia Technique with Any Body! Come enjoy great music, fun, community and movement exploration in one of Erin's classes.

 
I am so excited to be able to share Nia (and my therapeutic massage practice!) with you. Nia didn’t just “change my life”, it became my life and a practice that continues to guide me on my journey each day. Sharing the Nia Technique has provided me a practice that feeds my desire for movement, joy and a pleasure-filled life. My philosophy is that movement is our birthright as well as a source of fun, expression, exploration, creativity and transformation. Join me!
