Through teaching Nia and practicing massage therapy, it is with great joy I help people relieve pain and stress, learn more about themselves through body awareness and assist in their healing process. I love to help people feel better, move better and live better! Through practicing Nia, I was guided down a very complementary path. I became a massage therapist, graduating from the Colorado School of Healing Arts in 2004. I honed my craft at world class resorts in Colorado, Idaho and Florida before starting my own practice here in St. Petersburg. I’ve been in St. Pete for over 7 years now and since I’ve been here I’ve married, made new friendships, started my own practice, become a teacher of Nia Technique and became a mom. I love my body and I love my life! www.nia-stpete.com
Christine Stineman instructs the following:
Nia is a sensory-based movement practice and a fun, creative way to get fit, relieve stress, self-heal and move your body with Joy, Pleasure and Awareness. You'll sweat and laugh while conditioning your whole body. Practiced barefoot to a variety of soul-stirring music, Nia blends form with freedom, drawing from disciplines of the dance arts, martial arts, and healing arts. Every experience can be adapted to individual needs and abilities. Step into your own joyful journey with Nia, and positively shape the way you feel, look, think and live. Nia will move you...
