Nia Brown Belt Teacher

about Patti

Patti Rieser is a Brown and Green Belt Teacher who discovered Nia® in the late 90's and danced alone with videos until Nia exploded in the Triangle. She is a retired nurse practitioner, clinical researcher, and science writer. After practicing Vipassana meditation, yoga, and martial arts for years, she appreciates how Nia brings them together in a way that supports health, personal growth, and community. She has guided talking staff councils and wilderness vision quests, and she loves the dark and the gifts it holds.

Patti has energy and an ability to focus on the different people in her class, suggesting modifications as she sees the need.
We find her delightful.
