"I happened upon Sandy's Nia class when trying out an unlimited month at a new studio, and I remember her saying that we would probably find ourselves smiling or laughing uncontrollably as we danced. I was skeptical, but she was right--it was the most fun I'd had "exercising" in my life. More importantly, Sandy has helped me understand movement and dance in a completely new way--how it feels in the body and what it does for the mind, not how it is supposed to look for an observer. Nia practice develops grace and strength for the inner self that radiates into the community and universe through its practitioners. Sandy embodies this grace and strength in her teaching and her passion for sharing this craft is contagious--you will leave feeling calm, connected, and energized! "

"My best experiences with Nia are when the music and movement make me feel like spring is all around me and I am dancing in nature, even if it is winter. I guess those are the times when my juices are flowing. I stand straighter after Nia." R. Brown

"I was very struck at how they all moved with more ease as the class went on, and the increased sense of joy in the room." ~ Feedback from a corporate client watching one of my recent classes
"Sandra Lynn, you're such a HAM." ~ Heard from my mother, after attending my Nia class for the first time. (OK, I threw this in just for fun. Here's a pic of me and my awesome Momma...)
