The yoga we practice is not for ourselves alone, but for the Divine.

Sri Aurobindo


Dancers are the messengers of the gods.
Martha Graham


The purpose of our lives is to be happy.

Dalai Lama


It is the truth that frees, not your effort to be free.
J Krishnamurti


When you go to the garden, do you look at thorns or flowers?
Spend more time with roses and jasmine.



Allow yourself to trust joy & embrace it. You will find your dance with everything.


I would believe only in a god who knows how to dance.
Friedrich Nietsche


The world needs healing now, and all of us, students and teachers alike, can spread the Joy of Nia and the message of movement, community, love and compassion to help heal peoples's hearts and souls and quite possible , the world.
