About Emily

I’m a certified blue belt Nia teacher in Bothell, WA and hold a PhD in Public Health from the University of Washington.

I was introduced to Nia a little over three years ago in Seattle. From the first moment, I was gripped by feelings of exhilaration, freedom, and joy.  I was overwhelmed by how connected I felt to the movement. After much support and encouragement, I completed the White Belt training in March, 2012 with Jill Pagano and the Blue Belt training in 2013 with Britta von Tagen.

During my doctorate training in Public Health, I learned that the evidence is overwhelming–moving your body is healthy!   Nia is a glorious gateway to finding joy and healing by moving your body’s way.

I also teach Bhangra, Bollywood and Bhangracize, and perform with Rhythms of India. I love the freedom and joy of the Bhangra movements and music, much the same way I love Nia.
