I started late with ballet (at 11 years) and I had a hard time convincing my parents to let me go there. I continued for many years, also as an adult. After a long time I also tried oriental dance, which I liked a lot but finally was too constraining. In 2007 a friend of mine invited me to a NIA-class, which was then very unknown in France, brought to us by Régine PETIT).
At the beginning I just went there once in a while but I quickly became « addicted ». I never miss a workshop (Carlos, Debbie, Helen Terry, Ann Christiansen, Niamasté) and I’ve participated three times at the Nia Chakra retreat in Auroville with Philippe and Sabine whom I helped co-producting their white belt in Paris (April 2015). I obtained my white belt in July 2011 (France Laude GOHARD), the green one (France Laude GOHARD) in july 2013 and the blue one (Ann Christiansen) in october 2013.
I teach since September 2011 and I know that there is still much to discover with Nia.
Hope to see you soon!
