I love to entice people into action

with the pure joy of movement


I have been teaching Nia since 1997. As a Nia Black Belt, Nia 5 Stages and Nia Moving 2 Heal instructor, I thrive on helping people develop more positive and proactive approaches to their jobs and personal lives through physical awareness techniques.

My energizing classes and playshops weave together radical self-care and creative expression with laughter and learning; the how-tos of building and maintaining a vibrantly healthy body and life … all in a playfully empowering way.

My own body-mind-spirit connection is constantly evolving, and I am always excited to share my latest discoveries and learnings.

I came to this having enticed my own self the same way …jan-jensen-2013

I’m also passionate about:

  • Nia, dancing, expressive movement of all kinds
  • Painting, scribbling, collaging, sculpting, gluing, colouring, drawing. You can find the results at JanJensenArt.com
  • Being a Food Alchemist – creating delectable recipes to tempt the taste buds and nourish the body … oh, and they just happen to be gluten and dairy free too!
  • Writing, writing, reading – articles, posts, books, poems – flowing from my heart to the paper
  • Gardening – growing blossoms for beauty and veggies for outrageously good fresh and natural food
  • Walking on land and kayaking on the ocean, or floating on/in just about anything
  • Connecting with friends and family, while walking, talking, laughing, living
  • And most of all – being an Energy Alchemist. That’s how I see my role in the lives of the women with whom I connect. Whether it’s how to be in your body in a more mindful, loving way … or how to feed that body with amazing movement and food …

or how to give your own self a love-hug when you need it the most … I offer small steps that can add hope and grow possibilities in your life.
