Marybeth has had many home towns: Richmond, VA, Washington DC, Chapel Hill NC, London, and now Paris!
She discovered Nia (inspired by elements of Martial Arts, Dance arts, and Healing Arts) in 1998 after the birth of her 2nd child. After a few classes she was hooked; she loved to "dance like no-one's watching" in a roomful of smiling people. In 1999 she started training to become a teacher and she is now a Black Belt Nia Practitioner.
Marybeth’s passion is to inspire others through movement and and self-healing. She brings more than 18 years of experience, experimentation, and creativity to her playful Nia practice. As a teacher, Marybeth fosters a non-judgmental environment, empowering participants to listen to their bodies and to live with greater vitality, joy, and connection. Marybeth’s interest in self-healing and energy led her to the practice of Reiki. She has found her Reiki training to have a subtle yet vast impact on her Nia practice. Marybeth is a wife, mother, daughter, and friend, who uses awareness and joy to spread love and fun into the universe. She loves to travel the world and her motto is “Rock on!”
Marybeth is currently not instructing any classes.
