Marty, also a Nia Black Belt Instructor, became inspired to teach Nia after personally experiencing it’s healing power. Learning to sense and move his body in a healthy way has helped him to overcome the pain and stiffness of congenital disc degeneration. His passion for music drew him to Nia’s unique way of blending dance, martial arts and healing arts into a 60 minute music infused workout.
