Dance and Relaxation - 60min


This class is taught by:

Nadine Chadefaux

French speaking

Nadine, originally from Montpellier in the South of France, has been living in Paris for 20 years. Passionate about languages and traveling, she has had the chance to visit, live, and work in several different countries.

Always curious about discovering and experiencing the different forms of movement, she has practiced Ballet, Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, and Flamenco as well as Kung Fu and Capoeira. To Nadine, our bodies are extraordinary tools for expression, and sometimes it just takes some time and practice to find our own.

By chance, she discovered Nia through a workshop in 2012 and she instantly loved it! Within one single Nia class, one can dance, practice martial arts, have fun, express oneself in a safe and non-judgmental environment, and get a taste of Yoga and relaxation. So, in 2015, she earned her White Belt to be able to teach, and she started the extraordinary adventure of sharing Nia with students.

What does she like most when teaching Nia? To communicate her joy of dancing to the students, to provide them with the freedom of moving in their own ways, and to see the smiles lighting up their faces.

Nadine is currently not teaching any regular classes with us.

Eliza Sweeney

French speaking
Eliza moved to Paris in 2009 to further her training as an actress specializing in clown, mime, acrobatics and physical theatre.

Eliza grew up in Melbourne, Australia surfing, sailing, running, swimming, and all-round being outdoors. As a youth she competed as a gymnast in Victoria and afterwards moved towards soccer, hockey and netball. Realizing to her dismay that ball sports were not her forte, she was drawn to long distance running, athletics and rowing.

It was the boot camp style fitness training that she received that she loved the most. She loves to motivate people to achieve their goals, improve their well being and overall fitness and health. She is passionate about fitness and health, currently also training as a drama therapist, a vegetarian herself, and is keen to share this passion with others through her boot camp classes!

Students can expect a group training program that focuses on a full body work out including cardio and strength training. The group atmosphere will accomodate those who need that extra motivation to work out, complimented with the great social aspect.

An actress to the core, you can be sure that Eliza’s classes will be well animated!
It has been proven that dance elevates your mood, helps decrease anxiety and stress, burns calories, strengthens and tones muscle areas and improves over all well being. This class offers 30 minutes of invigorating dance followed by 30 minutes of relaxation and meditation. This class is for all levels - you do not need to know how to dance and you do not need any background in any dance technique. The class offers a mix of choreographed moves & free dance derived from various styles. For those looking to lose weight, tone up or just have a good time, this is the class for you ! Following the dance component of the class, the teacher offers 30 minutes of relaxation. Through relaxation we will learn to connect to deep breath and calm the body and the mind and to be in the present moment.
