  1. Thank you for sharing your valuable expertise with us, Deb. NIA exercise was a practice that I did not know much about until recently and I have now personally taken the class as well as have seen my clients benefit from the exercise. NIA is a perfect combination to align our mental and physical oneness.
    I enjoyed learning about the specific benefits for individuals who have Cancer and I will definitely keep it in mind as a positive and productive recommendation. You are such an amazing instructor and educator and I can’t thank you enough for continuing to make a difference in the health of others. Thanks for the insightful episode!
