Fire up the Floor Fun(d) Raiser.
Sounds a bit crazy, huh...donating money for a heated floor. This is about the floor and so much more.
My name is Jill Pagano and I'm a Somatic Educator. My training is as a Black Belt Certified Nia Teacher and Nia Faculty Trainer. A Somatic Educator basically means, I believe in the human body and how movement, which we sense, heals our body and spirit.
I've been teaching somatic movement since 1997 with the last 3 years focusing on opening my own movement studio. My desire: a clean, vibrant studio space to share the amazing body of work of Nia. A beautiful space where people feel welcomed and inspired to dance, learn, condition and heal.
Because classes are barefoot, with a fair amount of playing on the floor, the quality of floor is very important. I promised a heated floor when I opened my new studio. And last month, with the opening of BodyLife Conditioning Studio in West Seattle, I delivered (to the tune of $6700--product, electricians, installation). They are beautiful, cozy, CLEAN and warm. Comfortable, like the earth.
And honestly, the dream is more than just a warm, clean floor. It's about dedicating a space and myself to the education of the human body and sharing the brilliant joy of the Nia Technique.
As a thank you for your monetary support, you'll see I'm offering some thank you gifts. One in particular are raffle tickets for a free six-day White Belt Intensive ($1599 value) with me in Seattle (or any other location I teach). Thank you Nia Headquarters for collaborating on this donation! You can learn more about White Belt Intensive here. ( I typcially do the White Belt over two long weekends)
I also have other great raffle prizes like a year's worth of intuitive reading from intuitive & rootworker, Sindy Todo (Thank you Sindy!!), a Nia Wear outfits and a 3-month membership to BodyLife Conditioning.
For those of you who are Nia teachers or Nia lovers outside of Seattle, it would be my pleasure to offer my services via phone consultation. I can provide mentorship for your Nia practice or your Nia business-- you name it!
Thank you for contributing to BodyLife Studio, and supporting the dream of having a home for Nia's amazing body of work and education.
With much love and appreciation,
PS) Any amount of money over our goal will be put into a fund an angel fund for Nia lovers who need a little help affording classes.
PSS) BodyLife Conditioning is located at 5432 California Ave SW in West Seattle--98136 :)
