I am pleased to announce that I will now be offering Healing with Crystals to my repertoire of healing work. As well as still offering home visits and parties, I have a lovely new location at the CLC Clinic (9 Cameron St. N. Kitchener) where I will provide Energy Treatments and Tarot Readings.


A great article about Nia appeared in the May 2010 issue of Best Health Magazine, written by our own Yvonne Chypchar’s experience with Nia.

Text Box: If you know of a worthy cause that would like to organize a “Fun”draiser, how about suggesting a Nia Jam or Beginners Nia Workshop? Maybe a Humour Workshop or Storytelling.
What is a Nia Jam? For 1.5 to 2 hours, certified Nia Instructors will donate their time to guide participants through various Nia  kata. Suitable for everyone! This is the perfect time to introduce your friends and family to Nia and to support a worthy cause at the same time! 
I would be happy to provide more information about Fundraising options or help organize a Nia Jam event. Please contact me for more information. 
Text Box: Nia FUN-damentals: NIA BASICS

You will get a solid overview of the principles and philosophies behind The Nia Technique. We will discuss and explore the benefits of Nia, body awareness and sensation, body rhythm, natural time, the cycles, the energies and the 5 stages of healing.

Text Box: Nia: Exploring the Body’s Way
Everything you do in Nia supports the design and function of the body. The Body’s Way is a method of moving according to the body's specific design and structure. With The Body's Way, we honor this design and structure and allow it to guide our movement.
Nia’s way is always in alignment with the body. When you begin to understand The Body’s Way, your Body’s Way, you will start creating a new relationship with your body. You will learn how to get optimum power, propulsion, conditioning and flexibility, without pain. Movement choices will change because you will no longer base movement on habit, but on structural and experiential validation. We will use various techniques in this movement-oriented workshop to help you tap into your own Body’s Way. Please wear comfortable clothing, bring a mat/blanket, water and writing implement.
Date TBA, 12:30– 2:45 pm @ Rockway Centre, King St. E., Kitchener             $35 advance/$40 door
