'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. Helene is a wonderful workshop leader - sensitive, kind, encouraging, empowered and with good, clear boundaries'

Niio Dance is Informed by 

Body-Mind Centering

We journey deep into our bones, fluids and tissues, which have energetic as well as structural qualities. Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen  who created BMC, gives us the alternative holistic anatomical map of the body that Medical school overlooked.

The Tao

I am Chinese and the Tao is the ancient Chinese ‘Way’ which celebrates acceptance, change, creativity and the natural order and 'flow of the universe.' Symbolically, its element is water with its qualities of yielding, adapting, being soft and strong.

Lifetime Exploration and Research

This has been my life journey - beginning with Ballet, Hung Gar Kung Fu, Yoga, Meditation, Dance Movement Therapy, Somatic Movement Education and extended Conscious, Ecstatic and Shamanic dance journey spanning five decades.

Life Art Therapy 
Created by one of my teachers the late Anna Halprin, who discovered how dance is connected to our emotional world, healing herself and designing  the Life Art process, that uses movement and art.

Yoga and the Chakra system

This ancient philospophy and system for holistic wellbeing has now seeped into the mainstream. I was fortunate to 'discover' yoga and meditation in India in 1995, and it has been my companion with dance every since.

Nature and the Elements

There is a force and power in nature that human can never match, and indigenous cultures are in tune with its rhythms and cycles of life. We have the elements of nature within us, and it 
can inform, inspire and heal. Interestingly the Inca word for the 'body' is 'animated' or 'luminous' earth...

'Your class was a breath of fresh air and you hold the space so well. I can't remember the last time I laughed like that and played, just being completely authentic in such a long time, it was so refreshing. The classes are really deep and I'm getting a lot out of them. I’m hugely grateful on so many levels.'

Paul-Adam, Multi-disciplinary Artist

‘I love your way of working with me. You have got such wisdom, humbleness and congruence’
