Sifu Viola Brumbaugh

It has been a few years now since I met Viola through our Nia Assistant, Fran. Fran spoke so highly of Viola I had Viola come and teach a Tai Chi class to my Nia students, especially since Tai Chi is one of the 9 Movement forms of Nia (being one of three martial arts we use as an energy personality/flavor). I instantly felt a connection to Viola as a caring, centered and warm person and teacher.  I’m  happy we now have a place where to each teach under one roof to bring movement & healing to the community. Here are the details:
