Welcome to Niio Dance for New Integrated and Inspired Openings

Dance is an ancient pathway that we have used since time began, for ceremony and celebration, for healing and wholeness.

Experience the pure joy and ecstatic euphoria of flow state in dance,
when you become fully present, fears and worries fade, time stands still.. and you feel you can take on the world.


 'I felt really held and supported by you – your intention was palpable, tangible and I had some deep connections to the universe, the matrix, mother - thank you it was just medicine

Caroline, Counsellor

  'Really surprised by the depth of experience. So valuable to get in touch with the inner truth of my body, from my body. Great to give my body time to freely express my self. I heard so much and learnt so much. Helen is a wonderful workshop leader - sensitive, kind, encouraging, empowered and with good, clear boundaries.'

The Niio Journey of Empowerment


Dance is a celebration of what it means to be fully human in this life .

And we can All embrace this Gift, no matter what colour, shape, size or personal history we have. It is Timeless, Universal and Transformative.

In Niio Dance we look at our Inner Connection first.

Do you feel connected within? Comfortable in your own skin? Do you listen to your body and its messages? In short do you take care of yourself? After all this is the first and most fundamental relationship we have - the one we have with ourselves.

Then we look at Outer Connection.
 

How do we relate and show up in the world?  Can we connect to our physical environment and to those around us? Do we know who we are in this journey of life? When we are embodied and connected within, we can come from a deeper place of confidence and truth.

The Tao and Toltec Wisdom

I am Chinese and the Tao is the ancient Chinese ‘Way’ which celebrates acceptance, change, creativity and flow in life. 

Toltec Wisdom is from Mexico and a Toltec is an artist of the spirit. In Toltec Wisdom there are three masteries of the artist - that of awareness, transformation, and love, intent or faith.

Life Art Therapy

About Helene

Born in England but of pure Chinese descent, I grew up with real questions about identity. My feet would tread on British soil but my DNA told another truth and I have continually been a seeker.

I found refuge in the home of my body and in times of confusion and angst it is dance and music that has picked me up, and given me new perspective – time and time again.

Here I feel present, in the moment, fully connected.
I have discovered insight, joy and freedom. An inner place called home.

I feel it is my mission to share this joy of dance and its far-reaching benefits . For us to regenerate and in turn for the regeneration of our planet  and that is why I created Niio Dance.
