Niisa has been a fitness instructor, wellness and birth educator for over 20 years teaching students of all ages and abilities to heal and restore their health. Her students, with their ever changing needs, have been the inspiration to pursue certifications in pilates, personal training, yoga, yoga therapy, pre/postnatal fitness, prenatal yoga, kids yoga, barre and additional training specific to special populations.
Niisa’s greatest joy is working with students to move forward in their fitness journey, reintroducing activities they either stopped doing because of physical limitations or by discovering new ways to incorporate movement into their lives. Additionally, Niisa is a Director for the Pranakriya School of Yoga where she developed and teaches a Prenatal Yoga Teacher training and Anatomy for Yoga Teachers and Practitioners. She also holds a certification in Whole Foods – Plant Based Nutrition from Cornell.
When Niisa isn’t teaching, she is involved in youth leadership and mentoring programs through local and national organizations. She also enjoys reading, being out on the water, playing with her dog and spending time with family.
