WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I cannot begin to express how intelligent, intuitive, compassionate and insightful Brigita is as a Nia instructor, as an intuitive healer and as an amazing human being.
When I attended my first Nia class, my mind, body and soul were disconnected and lost. I was in a car accident several months prior and suffered a concussion as a result. This was my fourth concussion and my recovery through months of intensive conventional medicine had been unsuccessful up to this point.
Brigita, however, changed all of that. Through her expertise in leading the Nia class and through her hands on intuitive healing, she reassembled the pieces of my being and re-connected me to the source of all things in ways conventional medicine had been unable to do.
During subsequent Nia classes, Brigita’s healing abilities continue to support and strengthen not only my own recovery but also the recovery of all who attend her classes. She creates a safe space where people are free to reconnect with their own mind, body, soul, spirit and emotions. Her intuitive and empathetic nature allow her to symbiotically respond to the needs of those who attend her classes. Both before and after class, she listens with a kind, non-judgemental, empathetic ear to those around her and offers advice and strength when needed.
She has been a blessing to many people and I am so very fortunate to know her. She has healed me and changed my life for the better and the world definitely needs more of this kind of energy.
With heartfelt sincerity and wishes of peace.
This Nia class is so invigorating and fun - the combination of the lively music selection and Brigita's positive energy keeps me going back for more. It's a wonderful way to keep fit while having a good time & meeting some new friends.

There really are no words to describe this morning’s SoulFit session. Might have been the soft warmth of the sun shining through the windows, or the welcoming space that is the Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre, or the authentic and beautiful spirit of Brigita Roube our NIA (“Now I Am”) instructor— the class was like nothing I’ve ever experienced with insights I have never allowed myself to consider.
For example: “No pleasure, no point.” WHAT?! From my gym culture mantra “No pain, no gain”—this idea is...well, frankly, a shock to the system. Or, what about this quote used by Brigita: “Suddenly you find yourself realizing you are more than a piece of meat walking on earth.” RADICAL! I mean, of course—but, to hear it said like that? WHOA! Try this one on: “See your path with your heart...” YES!
Brigita encouraged us to be curious about the Nia movements. She suggested we view them like a Winner’s shopping trip and “just try them on”—anything that didn’t fit or feel right? RETURN! —no big deal. No judgment, just discovery. Pretty freeing for this not-so-graceful-dancer.
All to say, an incredible experience and so lovely to share it with this group of adventurous and amazing women.
It is my belief, that every answer I am looking for, is INSIDE of me. All I have to do is RE-connect to my Body. I call it: “Coming Home.”
I believe the most important relationship I will ever have in my entire life, is not with my husband or child, it’s with my body, and my body is the most precious thing.
The journey of the Nia practice has been life changing for me! It has opened a world of possibilities and exploration. I "came home!" The Nia community has empowered and inspired me on this journey. The support and examples of my Nia sisters and brothers have seen me through challenges, losses, gains, tears, laughter, confusion and "Aha" moments.
Nia is a lifestyle for me. She feeds my passion. Moving my body's way, healing through movement, walking my talk - mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually, makes me feel on-Purpose. It makes me appreciate the amazing intelligence of my Body and guides me to listen to the voices of my Body through sensation.
Nia makes me feel whole, juicy and sensual in my body, mind and spirit! It connects me to my intuitive source and empowers me as an intuitive healer.
